Is your little one putting their hands in their mouth? Is your child salivating a lot? These are all signs of your baby teething. Baby teeth come out at various times with the first tooth usually coming around 6 months of age (see diagram below).
Some tips for soothing your baby include the following:
- Massage sore gums by applying something cold / acetaminophen
- Give a nice, soothing bath using Baby Mantra’s Shampoo & Body Wash (partnered with Conditioner if your child has curly hair) followed by Calming Massage Oil. As a preventative measure, always apply Baby Mantra’s Diaper Rash Ointment before your little one goes to sleep.
- Schedule your first dental appointment when the first tooth appears
Your baby will grow his/her full set of teeth by the age of 3, so it is important to regularly apply these tips to allow your child to have a good night’s rest.
