Tips for teething babies
As teeth push through the gums, your baby may feel some soreness and become cranky and irritable.
You can ease soreness by putting an ice cube in a clean cloth and rubbing it softly on baby's gums for a few minutes. Chilling a teething ring in the refrigerator and letting baby chew on it may also help.
Your baby may drool a lot and have some diarrhea. If baby's diarrhea continues, it may be caused by something other than teething.
Don't blame fever, vomiting, diarrhea or other signs of illness on teething. If baby shows any of these signs, have your baby checked by a doctor.
