Did you read the previous part, How to Soothe a Teething Baby?
Updated article on april 2021.
Products to avoid during teething:
- Very important: it is officially recommended that you avoid hazelnut necklaces because many babies have eaten the beads after removing the necklace, which can cause choking
- Products that freeze gums, such as Orajel, are dangerous as the baby can swallow it. This product numbs gum nerves, and babies can have strong reactions to it
- Teething cookies are often made with very sweet ingredients which are not appropriate for babies
I have provided you with a lot of information about teething, which I hope can help you through this often challenging stage in your baby’s life.
Some dentists suggest a child’s first visit as early as one year old, but most start regular monitoring around the age of 3.
