Most babies begin teething around the 6th month mark. And usually the bottom-front teeth are followed by the top-front teeth – or, upper and lower incisors. Parents usually notice a few key indicators that teething has begun. Drooling and chewing on objects are typically the first symptoms. Having teething rings handy can be an asset. From there, they can become very irritable due to the soreness of their gums. And, as discomfort increases, chilling the teething rings – or even a spoon – can provide some quick alleviation. The middle of the night is no exception; as parents the world over are suddenly awakened by the intense crying of their teething baby.
You may notice some swelling of your baby’s gums as teeth come closer to emerging. They may even have a blistered look to them and be tender to the touch. Gum pain may even make your baby apprehensive at meal time. Fidgeting and general restlessness may also accompany this – adding to your challenges. Emerging molars can be more painful, since they are larger and have less ability to slice through the gums.
When you and your baby need some relief, there is homeopathy for teething. A 100%-natural remedy like Chamomilla-30c or Calcarea-Carbonica-30c – both products are available from Olloïs. These remedies have shown to provide a relaxing effect that will help ease the pain and help you both sleep. The Chamomilla-30c has also shown some ability to reduce inflammation; which could be a source of your baby’s discomfort.
