You baby is teething. Everything goes in the mouth to soothe those poor little gums. Any and everything goes into the mouth to try to soothe the discomfort. What to do?
First we need to realize that the urge to bite down on something is a natural way to help the gum tissue break down and help the teeth immerge.
What to look for in a teething product?
1) look for a teething toy that is sized so that your child will not swallow it. Teething toys that are too small can get lodged in the mouth or throat causing choking, blocked air passages and/or ingested.
2) If you are going the way of teething biscuits be aware that pieces of the biscuit break off and crumble. Chewing on teething biscuits should be under your supervision only.
3) If you choose a teething ring with liquid, look for consistency in the liquid. Check the package and see what kind of liquid is in the ring just incase it gets punctured and your child digests some of the liquid.
If you are putting it in the freezer to make it cold to soothe the gums be wary of freezer burn on the gums. Your childs gums are very sensitive so a good option is to put the teething ring in the refrigerator to get cold.
4)Teething toy are very important but the most important thing about the teething toy is that they are non toxic.
