Comfort for Teething Pains

During teething a baby’s gums can become slightly inflamed and irritable. Cooling the gums is an effective way to relieve pain and discomfort. Nowadays there are numerous products available that can be chilled in a refrigerator or freezer and there are also everyday items that can be chilled to ease the discomfort of the first teeth breaking through the gums.

Some of the most effective cooling aids include:

– Teething rings and toys

– Fruit sections in a mesh bag to avoid the danger of swallowing

– A cold spoon or frozen, clean washcloth
