5 Ways To Comfort A Teething Baby

Teething can be a difficult and uncomfortable time for babies. Here are five ways to help comfort your baby during this process:


  1. Use a teething toy: Giving your baby a teething toy to chew on can help relieve some of the pain and discomfort caused by teething.

  2. Massage their gums: Gently massaging your baby's gums with a clean finger or a damp cloth can also help soothe the pain.

  3. Offer cold foods or drinks: Cool temperatures can help numb the pain. You can offer your baby chilled purees or a cold, damp washcloth to chew on.

  4. Try pain relief medication: Talk to your pediatrician about using over-the-counter pain relief medication such as acetaminophen or ibuprofen to help ease your baby's discomfort.

  5. Give extra love and attention: During this time, your baby may need extra comfort and attention. Holding and cuddling them can help soothe their discomfort and make them feel loved and supported.

BONUS: Please be gentle with yourself. Teething is uncomfortable for babies, which can make you very uneasy. There isn't anything wrong with your parenting...this is a beautiful part of life... it means your baby is growing in the right direction. You got this!
