For mommies out there, I've come across some helpful tips from Kids Health when your baby is teething :
• Wipe your baby's face often with a cloth to remove the drool and prevent rashes from developing.
• Give your baby something to chew on. Make sure it's big enough so that it can't be swallowed and that it can't break into small pieces. A wet washcloth placed in the freezer for 30 minutes makes a handy teething aid — just be sure to wash it after each use. Rubber teething rings are also good, but avoid ones with liquid inside because they may break or leak. If you use a teething ring, be sure to take it out of the freezer before it becomes rock hard — you don't want to bruise those already swollen gums!
• Rub your baby's gums with a clean finger.
• Never tie a teething ring around a baby's neck — it could get caught on something and strangle the baby.
• If your baby seems irritable, acetaminophen may help — but always consult your doctor first. Never place an aspirin against the tooth, and don't rub alcohol on your baby's gums.
I am glad we're done with 6 little teeth. Over the next couple of months, there will be more. Gotta have my coffee ready. Aja!
