Camilia Makes Teething a Little Easier for Both Parents & Baby
Those first few months after having a baby can be not only rewarding, but very exhausting for parents. As baby’s first tooth starts to break through, you may find that baby isn’t the only one feeling tired and cranky.
Knowing what to expect and how to ease your baby’s pain during the teething process can make things a little easier for both you and your little one. Baby’s first tooth generally appears around 6 months of age and its arrival is preceded by an increase in drooling. Other signs of teething are irritability, wanting to put pressure on the gums, and waking in the middle of the night with discomfort.
Not sure what’s the best way to ease your teething baby’s pain? Here are some helpful tips:
- Rub your baby's gums: Use a clean finger or damp washcloth and apply pressure to your child’s gums.
- Keep it cool: A spoon or a chilled, solid teething ring can be soothing on a baby's gums. Don't give your baby a frozen teething ring, however. And a liquid-filled ring can crack from the pressure of your baby biting on it.
- Search the fridge: If your baby is eating solid food, you can opt for cold foods like applesauce or yogurt.
- Dry the drool: To prevent skin irritation, keep a clean cloth handy to dry your baby's chin.
- Soothe with Camilia: Boiron’s Camilia temporarily relieves symptoms of teething, including painful gums and irritability.* The easy-to-use premeasured liquid doses are free of benzocaine, flavors, dyes, lactose, sugar, or artificial sweeteners. There’s no risk of numbing your baby’s gag reflex and Camilia won’t mask symptoms of more serious conditions.
