Treating teething pain and discomfort

Quite a few methods will soothe the painful gums of your teething baby, before you turn to pain relief products and teething gels, those are:

  • If your baby is old enough, try giving them chilled water in a bottle or cup. Older babies eating solid foods can also be offered cold fruit purees or plain yoghurt, which all assist in numbing the pain somewhat.
  • If your baby has a facial rash, use a soft cotton cloth to gently wipe the drool away from their face as often as possible. Take care not to rub the inflamed area and use a barrier cream to provide protection from further irritation.

  • Frozen peas, my kids loved them and still ask for a bowl of frozen peas!

  • Sticks of carrot or cucumber.
  • Watermelon or strawberries.
  • I make ‘breastmilk dummicicles’ for my little one using his dummy. I also offer him frozen fruits like frozen banana or frozen durian to nibble on. Rachel C.

Symptoms of teething

For most toddlers, symptoms of teething are quite minor and infrequent. The pain of teething tends to last for a few days, but if multiple teeth come through simultaneously, the pain can continue for longer.
