Advice on Teething from Dr. Nadia

Teething is a broad term used to describe when a child is experiencing uneasiness due to the eruption of baby teeth. A few ideas Dr. Nadia finds helpful are:

  • a cooled teething ring
  • a wet towel frozen in the freezer can be used to chew on and to clean the gums
  • a gentle massage of the gums with your clean finger or a extra soft toothbrush can be soothing
  • **avoid using the over the counter topical creams that relieve pain for teething they can mask symptoms and can be toxic to children
