Teething Tips

It is common for babies to have sore or tender gums as their teeth begin to come in. Try rubbing your baby’s gums with a clean, wet piece of gauze to make them more comfortable, or give them a clean, chilled teething ring. Do not put sugar or other foods on the gauze or teething ring, and do not use gels or creams with benzocaine for babies younger than two years old. Consult your provider if natural methods do not make your baby more comfortable.
