Teething remedy #2 - Cooling
Keep your baby’s mouth cool to relieve some of the pain of teething try the following things
- Cold washcloth
- Cold spoon
- Your clean finger dipped in cold water
Once your baby is 6 months old, you can give him or her sips of water when thirsty. In younger babies the water is mainly used as an external cooling tool. On another note, for treating the fever that sometimes comes with the teething, you’d rather use a washcloth soaked in lukewarm water.
Be careful with anything frozen, which can be bad for your baby’s health and be harmful. Better to use the refrigerator rather than the freezer when cooling off a spoon or washcloth.
