What can you give a baby that is teething? | MOMSANDCHILD

     Permanent teeth appear immediately after.
        The time for the emergence of milk teeth varies according to many factors, as milk teeth begin to appear when a child is between 6 months and 1 year old.
Children have a total of 20 deciduous teeth (10 in the upper jaw and 10 in the lower jaw).
         In addition, milk teeth appear in stages, not all at once.

Advice to make milk teeth last longer:

A mother should start taking care of her baby’s teeth even before they appear.

From birth until the 12th month old:

Mothers should keep the baby's mouth clean by gently brushing his gums using a clean baby towel, and upon noticing the appearance of his first teeth, they should gently wash them using a soft babies’ toothbrush and fluoride toothpaste.

From the 12th to the 36th month:

The baby's teeth should be washed twice a day for two minutes using the same fluoride paste until the child reaches 3 years old, and the best time to wash them is after breakfast and before bed.
It is necessary for the mother to take care of her baby's teeth, whether if she depends on breastfeeding or formula, so mothers should follow these pieces of advice:
  • Visiting the doctor with the emergence of the first teeth of the child, this helps a lot in knowing whether the child's teeth are healthy or not, and to make sure that all teeth grow normally.
  • Try to give your baby something to chew, such as a cold teething ring, to reduce pain. 
  • Use a wet towel and massage your baby's gums, as the cold sensation helps relieve pain.
  • You should wipe off the flowing saliva (constant drooling is part of teething).
  • If saliva remains in the child's mouth, it may damage the gums.
  • Also, excessive salivation can irritate your child's skin.
  • Keep your child's chin dry by wiping saliva with a clean cloth.
  • Do not give your child too many sugary drinks, such as soft drinks, which can contribute to tooth decay.
