Baby teething problem
The baby begins to give birth to its first tooth about 6 months after birth. At this time, the teeth that grow are called deciduous teeth. There are 20 teeth in total, which last until 2 or 2 and a half years old.
However, the growth of each baby is different. Some babies may grow their teeth when they are four or five months old, and some may not grow their teeth until they are one year old. As long as they are one year old, it is normal.
During the baby’s teething period, he will show a lot of symptoms, some irritability, drooling, and even biting everywhere. These are all the discomfort caused by teething.
Although these discomforts will gradually disappear through the growth of the teeth, these have a great impact on the growth of the baby’s teeth. If the care is not good, it may even affect the health of the permanent teeth.
We can take some small steps to relieve the discomfort caused by baby teeth.
1. Wipe your baby’s gums with gauze dipped in cold water every day. If it is summer, you can use a cotton gauze to wrap a small piece of ice to give your baby a cold compress, which can temporarily relieve the discomfort caused by long teeth.
2. For gum training, you can buy some products such as teethers or molar sticks for your baby to bite. This can alleviate discomfort. Second, you can also train your baby’s chewing ability.
3. Clean your mouth.
Breast milk or formula contains lactose and cellulose, which are the energy source for bacterial survival, so do n’t think that your baby does n’t have to brush your teeth, and do n’t be afraid of trouble. Wipe your baby’s teeth and gums with warm water after each supplement.
A small number of babies will develop fever and diarrhea when they have teeth. These symptoms may not be present in every baby, and they will not disappear on their own. You should take your baby to the hospital for a check and take the right medicine.
Teething of a baby is a physiological process, and generally does not require trivial problems, but in some cases, the mother should know and pay attention to avoid countless, fuss or negligence.
