Teething SymptomsCongratulations! This is an exciting milestone in their young life so make sure you take as many adorable pictures as you can!

Despite the utter cuteness of teeth buds sprouting through, many parents worry about the uncomfortable symptoms their child may be experiencing. Some even believe teething causes physical illnesses such as fever and diarrhea, although this hasn’t been proven. If your child is ill, make sure you take them to their pediatrician immediately.

 

There are a few traditional symptoms you can expect to see when your child begins teething.

 

These include:

  • Biting
  • Drooling
  • Irritability
  • Trouble sleeping
  • Declining food
  • Swelling, sensitive gums

 

To help with these irritating symptoms, parents can give their child something safe to chew on, such as a teething ring of even a cold washcloth. If your child seems to be in harmful discomfort, take them to their pediatrician and discuss further options.

 

Remember to set up regular appointments with your children’s doctor and discuss any questions you may have. Every child is unique and specific recommendations and steps may be recommended for their safety and health.
