The dentition period in babies begins between the first 3-6 months and the appearance of all milk teeth in the mouth is completed at the age of 2.5-3 years. Periodic dentition can be very troublesome and tiring for both the little ones and the families.
-Increase in saliva
-Do not bite hands
-Mild fever, sometimes accompanied by diarrhea
-Refusal to feed
One or more of these symptoms can be seen together. If the fever is above 37 degrees and accompanied by diarrhea, a pediatrician should be consulted. During this period, babies are more susceptible to infective diseases as their immune system is weakened. If there is another concomitant disease, it should be treated.
I would like to give a few practical advice to families for teething periods:
– Wash your hands and massage your baby’s teeth
-Give him cold fruit to bite, he’ll gnaw it…
– Let him bite the teethers that you keep in the refrigerator for 15-20 minutes.
-You can use gels that relieve the pain of the gums.
– If there is a lot of pain, you can give a paracetamol derivative painkiller.
A warm bath will both relax and delight our little one.
-You can eat cold yogurt, cold fruit purees or ice cream.
-Make sure to drink plenty of fluids.
-Do not insist on continuing the normal diet during this period. You can spend this period with follow-on foods, fruit purees and biscuits. Weight gain will stop. This is normal situation…
-Give him plush toys that he can chew on…
