Banish teething pain

Did you know that cutting a tooth should be as painless as growing a fingernail? So why isn’t it? Every time your baby feeds, the milk or formula leaves a residue of plaque on his gums. When plaque accumulates on your baby’s gums, it causes them to swell. Thus, when the teeth start to poke through this inflamed area, it hurts.

By simply rubbing your baby’s gums after every feed you can prevent teething pain down the road. Wet a piece of gauze, a paper towel or a washcloth and rub it on your baby’s gums after every feed. Not only will this clean his gums, but it will get him used to the brushing sensation and more amenable to brushing his teeth later on. And of course, it will eliminate any teething pain he might have.
