Seeing your kids get their very first tooth can make you excited or fill you with dread. As you may know, it’s common for your child’s first tooth eruption to occur when they’re between the ages of four and six months. Your little ones last tooth will usually erupt at around the age of two. This process, known as teething, can be painful. However, here are some things you can do to make the experience more comfortable.

One option you can try is giving your child something to chew on. A cold waffle or a teething ring may work well. When your baby is biting down while their teeth are coming through, this teething ring can relieve pain and break down the tissue of the gums. This makes it much easier for the tooth to erupt. A cold waffle or a teething ring are also useful because they can numb your baby’s gums, providing more comfort.

Medication is another option you should consider. Normally, these medications are gels that will numb the sore areas in your mouth. It is also vital to remember that you using too much of this gel can numb your child’s whole mouth. Sometimes, over-the-counter medications don’t work. If this happens, you can talk to your pediatrician about a prescription. If you aren’t interested in using medication, a vanilla extract might also work.

You may find that your child has a hard time eating or drinking while teething. Try giving them soft food or flavored water to convince them to eat and drink. Lastly, distracting your little one is one of the best ways to help your little one deal with the discomfort of teething. Playing or cuddling with your baby, or watching videos with them, could help.
