Does your toddler seem extra fussy lately? It could be that he or she is starting to teeth.
This is often a painful and uncomfortable process for children, so it’s important that you help them get through it with as little pain as possible. When they do start teething try these techniques to help minimize their pain:
Keeping your toddlers teeth cool will help lessen the pain that they’re feeling from their teeth breaking through the skin. You can do this by giving them a cool, wet washcloth to chew on or by sticking a teething ring in the refrigerator and giving it to your toddler after it’s cooled down. This will also help counteract any swelling they may be encountering.
Teething makes toddlers drool much more than normal, so don’t be alarmed if their drooling seems to increase tenfold overnight. Be aware though that too much drool can end up irritating their skin, so it’s important to keep a cloth handy and wipe away as much of it as possible.
