How to soothe a teething baby

It is quite difficult to see your baby suffering from high teething pain. Although some babies may not experience any symptoms, they might still feel irritated or be in heavy pain. Therefore, to soothe a teething baby, you must be aware of the good and proper teething remedies for babies.

Best teething remedies for babies

  • Give your baby with a chilled fruit to soothe their teething pain:
    Once your child starts eating solid food items now, you can offer them a tasty and healthy snack of chilled mashed bananas. This will help you to soothe teething babies. However, if you are worried about choking, you can place the fruit first in a mash feeder and then give that to your little one to slowly lick it or suck on. Moreover, with the help of a mash feeder, you can also experiment with various types of fruits, including apples, strawberries, mangoes, ripe pears, and so on.

  • Massage for baby’s gums:
    If your baby is in great pain, you can help them by carefully massaging teeth and little gums. For this, first, wash your hands and then calmly sit with your baby. Next, slowly and gently massage their teeth gums in a circular motion. For this purpose, you can also use a teether. Vkaire offers best and high-quality teethers at affordable prices.
  • Use a cold washcloth to soothe sore gums:
    Firstly take a clean cotton washcloth and dip it in the water. Then, wring it out and place it carefully in the refrigerator for around 1 hour. Once it gets cool, fold it into very small pieces.
