What to do to ease up my toddler's molar time?

Teething makes the child more irritable than usual. The child feels a lot of pain and it is; therefore, necessary to provide them comfort during this time.

How To Tackle Babies During their Teething Time of Molars?

  • Diet Change: A diet that consists of soup and yogurt is better than solid foods.

  • An Antidote for Pain: Thick end of a chilled, uncut carrot, for instance, can be a good antidote for molar eruption pain.

  • Icy water to help numb the area, so no pain is felt by the toddler.

  • If the toddler is constantly drooling, keep a towel or soft cloth handy to pat his chin dry to avoid excessive irritation on his chin.

  • Break out the child’s old teething toys.

  • One can try rubbing teething-gel on one’s toddler’s gums to numb the pain.

  • In extreme duress situations, infant paracetamol can be given with the consultation of a doctor.

  • Avoid letting the child chew any pointed or sharp objects. Hard plastic chains are also a big ‘No ‘ for a child in teething time.

In case of an emergency, visit the doctor for any further assistance. He may give Tylenol or Advil, as per the severity of the situation.
