Teething trou­ble

Chat - - HEALTH -

My lit­tle girl’s con­stantly teething. She cries, drib­bles and her face is blotchy. Will it ever stop?

Kelly, Ch­ester-le-Street

On av­er­age, chil­dren pro­duce a tooth a month be­tween the ages 6-30 months, though why teething causes symp­toms in some ba­bies and not oth­ers, is a mys­tery.

Teething gel, cold teething rings and baby parac­eta­mol can help. And it’s usu­ally all over by the age of 2½ years.
