Fol­low these steps to ease teething pain

Mother & Baby (Australia) - - Real Advice -

Once teething be­gins, be pre­pared for a grumpy bub, with ex­tra drib­bling, red gums, face rub­bing and ear grab­bing.

Rins­ing a clean face washer and plac­ing it in the freezer for 30 min­utes to an hour will give your baby some­thing to chew on, and the cold tem­per­a­ture will soothe ten­der or swollen gums.

If your baby is old enough for solids, of­fer a teether, store-bought or home­made rusks or sugar-free bis­cuits to chomp on. The hard tex­ture en­cour­ages chew­ing, which is also great for your bub’s gum and jaw de­vel­op­ment.

Gen­tly rub your fin­ger or a cold spoon over his gums to tem­po­rar­ily soothe pain.
