How do you know your child’s teeth are coming in? You keep in mind some indicators and forget others. Usually, you talk to your friends and relatives about common symptoms like fever, drooling, diarrhea, and redness of their buttocks. But there are other indicators that also mean the little one has reached the teething stage.
Your Child’s Teething Symptoms
If you’ve noticed that your child has a sore mouth and tries to use everything that falls into their hands to put pressure on their gums, that means that they’ve begun to feel teething pains.
To be sure, use your finger to pass a small, dampened bandage over their gums. If the gums are swollen, that tells you that your little one’s teeth are starting to grow.
To reduce their pain, give them a soft teether. Put it in the freezer for a little while first; its coldness will help easetheirdiscomfort.
You can also use your clean finger to spread a special ointment on their gums.
In the case of a fever, consult your doctor to guide you to the appropriate medicine.
Runny Stool and Redness of the Buttocks
Keep in mind that during teething, your child may suffer from diarrhea, too. Acidic stool in this case may lead to redness of the skin of the buttocks.
Try to have them drink water regularly and as often as possible during teething.
Replace vegetable recipes you prepare for them with rice and carrot puree. These foodswill reduce their runny stool.
To treat skin redness, use an ointment to calm and protect it.
During your child’s teething phase, they may need you to clean their face regularly because tooth development may be accompanied by a runny nose with a lot of mucus.
Make sure to clean their nostrils every day with a special serum and a bulb syringe. If the runny nose persists, consult a pediatrician.
