One of the most important milestones in the first year of the baby’s life is the birth of the first teeth. However, when the teeth are born, the gingiva breaks, becoming inflamed.
This inflammation often causes redness in this region, swollen gums and sometimes even fever. This is why it is normal for the baby to be angry and uncomfortable at that time, sleeping poorly and crying a lot.
The swollen gum, responsible for the baby’s discomfort, is a naturally occurring symptom, and it can not be prevented from occurring.
However, you can put some tips into practice that will help ease the baby’s discomfort.
Tips for relieving baby’s swollen gums
When teeth are born, especially the first ones, the discomfort caused by the swollen gums on the baby is great.
As such, it is essential to have some care in order to calm the inflammation and swelling, giving greater comfort to the baby.
Here are some tips to relieve swollen gums on your baby.
– There are specific products that you can buy in pharmacies to calm the discomfort caused by swollen gums, and are based on natural active principles, suitable for babies (lemon balm, thermal water, chamomile, among others).
– The swollen gum, as mentioned above, is very uncomfortable, and may prevent the baby from sleeping in a relaxed and relaxed manner. If nothing is done, he will be even more irritated in the morning, since he slept badly. Thus, to prevent your baby from entering a spiral of discomfort, if he has many difficulties in sleeping, you can give him a soothing tea to help him fall asleep. But be careful, ask the pediatrician first for advice on proper tea before you give him a drink.
Give the baby a cold teething ring to bite, and the lower temperature will help relieve the inflammation, and thus the discomfort caused by swollen gums. In case your baby is already used to eating solid foods, take advantage of it and give him a cold carrot or a piece of apple to bite him (to prevent him from choking, you can use the feeding nets).
