  • Try taking your baby’s mind off their troublesome teeth with a change of scenery or play.
  • Consider giving your baby a teething ring to provide relief from the pain.
  • Try cooling a teething ring in the fridge but never in the freezer.
  • If your baby is six months or older chewing a bread crust or bread stick, under supervision of course, can help.
  • Avoid rusks or biscuits as they contain sugar, which can cause tooth decay.
  • There’s no evidence to support that teething gels are effective, but if you decide to try one, make sure it’s specially designed for babies.
  • The same goes for homeopathic teething gels, though again, if you decide to try one, make sure it’s licensed for use in your country.
  • As soon as teeth appear, brush them with a fluoride toothpaste.
