What are the symptoms of teething?
As teeth are erupting, babies can become irritable, fussy, drool more, or lose their appetite. A fever or diarrhea is not a symptom of teething so in this case you should see your baby’s pediatrician.
How can you soothe a teething baby?
Soothe the tender gums by gently massaging the gums with your finger, a small cool spoon, or a gauze pad. A pacifier or teething ring may help as well. A topical benzocaine anesthetic should not be used without first talking to your dentist due to potential side effects.
