An important thing for new parents to remember is that that teething occurs each time a new tooth breaks through your child’s gum line. As this process continues, it can cause discomfort and pain for your child. For a list of guidelines to help your teething child, consider the following:

– If you are looking for safe and effective treatments to help your child deal with the pain and discomfort of teething, try using products designed for teething including teething rings. Do not give teething tablets to children under 2. As a substitute, try using small, chilled spoons and gauze pads.
– If your child starts running a fever or has rashes with no known explanation, he should see a healthcare professional as soon as possible.
– Symptoms of teething include irregularities in appetite, sleep patterns, fussiness, or increased drooling.
