5 Essentials To Make Teething More Comfortable For Your Baby
There’s more to teething than just the discomfort in your baby’s gums, and many first-time parents find themselves at a loss as to how to soothe their little ones. The good news is that there are many things you can do to help. Here are our 5 tips to make the process more comfortable and put the smile back on your baby’s face.
Keep plenty of drool bibs and burp cloths on hand, and dress your baby in easy-off shirts for quick changes. Teething babies drool a lot, and drool-soaked clothes can irritate their delicate skin.
Apply Aquaphor Baby Healing Ointment to any irritated skin on your baby’s face and neck. The gentle and hypoallergenic formula creates a protective barrier to help heal chapped skin.
Use teethers that are nontoxic, age-appropriate, and given to your baby under adult supervision. Not all teething toys are the same. Younger babies need easy-to-hold teethers, and older babies will benefit from unique shapes that can reach their developing molars.
Make Aquaphor Baby Diaper Rash Cream part of your regular diaper changing routine. Some people have linked teething to diaper rash. If that’s a problem for your baby, make sure to use a hypoallergenic Diaper Rash Cream as soon as your baby starts to teethe. Like this, you can prevent Diaper Rash from starting in the first place!
Add some extra rocking and snuggles to your calming bedtime routine. Teething can mean bad news for your baby’s sleep (and yours!). The extra calming bedtime routine will help them fall asleep, despite the discomfort from teething.
