your child will probably ""teething"" throughout his second year of life, and it's likely to get more Have pain than in the first year of life.
When do teeth appear in toddlers?The teeth that cause the most discomfort are the first molars that break through between the ages of 12 and 15 months, and the second molars that appear approximately at the end of the second year of life. The sharp canines grow in the meantime, but usually do not cause any problems.
Why is teething painful for children? Molar teeth are large and blunt, which is why they move slowly through the gum. This teething process does not make your child ill, but it can be very painful, and because of this, your child will often be in a bad mood, often with no pain at all.If a tooth is about to break, the cheek on that side may be hot and red, and anything your child might try to relieve pain (like suckling or chewing) can also cause pain. If your child sucks on the thumb or takes the pacifier, then it may have difficulty falling asleep, because sucking is not only unpleasant, the pain continues even after sucking.
Being breastfed or drinking from the bottle can also irritate the gums and irritate your baby. Let it suckle as long as it wants, but if it's in pain, then offer it to drinks in the cup, so it'll definitely get enough to drink.
The good news is that every new tooth causes trouble for a few days at most.
How can I help?
There are not many ways to help, but the little bit of what you can do will reassure you and your child:Something cold to bite over might be enjoyable. Gel rings can resist baby teeth, but a raw, ice-cooled carrot is also very effective, especially because your child can place them exactly where the pain is.
- Sometimes rubbing the affected gum with a finger helps you to combine it with an edible gel available in Dogeria.
- Cold wind often makes the discomfort worse. Your child should always wear a hat in the cold months outside. Avoid train - even through open windows while driving.
- Can teething make a child sick?
If your child suffers from severe pain that does not come from sucking or chewing, then something other than the teeth could be behind it. Earache is very common at this age, which often overlaps with the toothache pain.If your child has a fever, it may be due to teething, but he's certainly not feeling well.If you have no fever, but keep a hand on one half of your face or one ear, then only a doctor can tell you whether it's from the ear, the teeth, or both.
Have your child examined. If the doctor can not do anything for your child, he can at least prescribe acetaminophen to relieve the pain and fever.
