The teething period is a process that can vary in every baby. The first tooth is usually 6-7. It comes out in months. There is a relationship between teething and genetics. Some families may come out early in children, and in others late. However, if the baby is still not released after 13 months, a doctor should be consulted. Generally, first cutting teeth in the lower middle and then the upper middle cutting teeth emerge. 10 teeth in the upper jaw and 10 in the lower jaw take place in the mouth up to 30 months.
In fact, contrary to what is known, mothers often realize that teeth come out without any discomfort in their babies. However, decrease in absorption during this period and anorexia, restlessness, difficulty in falling asleep, crying sessions, chirping poop or constipation. Redness and irritation around the lip due to the increase in saliva may be seen in your baby's desire to take your hand and objects that take into your mouth into your mouth. It is also a coincidence that there are symptoms such as high fever (especially 38 ° and above) and diarrhea in this period. This may be a symptom of a simultaneous microbial disease, so it is necessary to consult a doctor.
So what can we do for our baby to get over this period more easily at the time of teething?
First of all, embracing with the skin theme to reduce his unrest in this period is one of the most important methods that will make our baby feel alone and make him relax.
Since your baby's gums are swollen and sensitive, you can slightly rub your gums with your finger and make their downshand. For this purpose, you can use a cold and clean cloth.
It may also be useful to use a cooled teething ring made of hard rubber to chew your baby. However, make sure that the teething ring does not freeze. If the object is too hard, it can damage your baby's gums. Again, raw vegetables such as cooled carrots and celery stalks can be used for this purpose. If you give your baby something to gnaw, make sure that it is in a sitting position to avoid missing your lungs and be with you.
Jews marketed such as teething bracelets, amber necklaces and bracelets do not have a proven benefit in infants, and it is certainly not recommended that they create a risk of strangling, injury and infection.
Due to the sensitivity of the gums and palates during the teething period, it is entirely normal for your baby to be anorexia. However, this may be too much to affect weight gain in some babies. First of all, it is necessary to give the food that you can eat and want. It is absolutely not the right approach to force the nutrients he does not want. It is necessary to continue to feed in the same way in infants who receive breast milk or fed with formula formula. In addition to complementary food, you can feed it with foods that your baby will not be forced to eat, such as warm, even cold fruit purees, vegetable purees, yogurt, yogurt soup and custard instead of hot foods. Since these foods do not require your baby to chew, it does not pressure your baby's gums and do not bother your baby. In infants who can be fed with finger foods, you can first put the finger foods in the refrigerator and then give it to your baby. These nutrients should be selected from foods that are suitable for the month of your baby and can easily grasp with their own hand. For this purpose, carrots, broccoli, cauliflower, bananas, apples, pears, soft cheese, meatballs can be given. Babies can relax by scratching their teeth with finger foods. Finally, the fact that it is drinking enough water is also very important in terms of nutrition in infants who have teeth and should not be neglected.
