Baxter Bites Week 5 Teething


 

TEETHING

Baby teeth erupt continually from the age of 6 months to 3 years. Children then lose their baby teeth as they are forced out by the adult set between 6 and 12 years of age.

 

 

GENERAL ADVICE

  • Buy a suitable teething gel to help soothe the pain.
  • Buy a cooling teething ring or teething biscuits to help the pain.
  • Teething causes excess saliva and dribbling, but it does not usually cause the teeth or gums to bleed.
  • Your child may become more restless.
  • Your child may start sucking their thumb.
  • Your child may have a temperature while teething. If so, ask your pharmacist for a pain killer to help with the pain and reduce the temperature. Teething can also cause diarrhea. If so, give plenty of fluids e.g. re-hydration sachets.
  • If white spots appear on the tongue or in the mouth, ask your pharmacist for help. (Rowland pharmacy 2017)
