It is soothing for the baby with a gentle massage of the gums, for example with a soft teething ring that has been chilled, or you can carefully rub the gums with a soft toothbrush.

Teething for babies can occasionally create irritated gums when the new milk tooth has had difficulty to penetrate the gum, and it becomes a little swelling.

It may even occur a small bruise and you may even see a blue mark as the tooth makes it's way to the surface.

BABY TEETHING PAIN: Only if your child seems to be hurting, should you visit a pediatric dentist for teething medication.

Since many children, when teeth erupt love to chew on things, it's important that your child has Safe Teething Toys that are self soothing to chew on.

Often parents blame all kinds of possible symptoms when their babies start teething.

But the tooth eruption itself can not cause vomiting, diarrhea and loss of appetite or seizures.

FEVER TEETHING: Some babies, infants and toddlers have a slight temperature of 100 degrees F/37.8 degrees C, during teething but they have no fever.

Teething irritation doesn't cause Fever Temperature in children.

If the child gets fever symptoms, it is because something else is wrong, and needs to be seen by a pediatrician.

It is said that when babies start teething late, if the baby teeth erupt late, the teeth get stronger with less chance for cavities.

As soon as the first tooth has erupted fully, a daily Baby Teeth Care routine needs to be established.
