Easing The Teething Process: SOS Mom

Mum Saba Samreen Khan’s 07-month old baby has started the teething process. She asked ‘What can I do to make him feel comfortable and irritation free?’

Here’s what our parents had to say through the SOSMom forum:

  • Put honey on baby’s gum (please check with baby’s doctor if giving honey is okay)babyteething
  • Give baby suji rusk to chew on
  • Give baby a chilled teether / water filled cooling teether
  • Carrot sticks to chew on
  • Make sure baby drinks lots of water
  • Check with baby’s doctor if baby needs any calcium supplements
  • Make sure baby’s mouth and gums are cleaned well during the day as well as in the night.
  • Give baby bread sticks to chew on
  • Give baby cheeku pieces to chew on
  • Parantha rolls that baby can hold and chew on
  • Maintain hygiene
  • Try breast feeding baby if there is too much discomfort and pain
  • Regularly massage baby’s gums to soothe the pain
  • Add a pinch of salt to a little bit of honey and rub on baby’s gums.
