As teeth come in, babies may have sore or tender gums. To help your baby feel better, you can
- gently rub your baby’s gums with a clean wet gauze, your finger, or a small, cool spoon
- give them a clean, chilled (not frozen) teething ring – but don’t dip it any thing sweet or in other foods
if your baby is still cranky and uncomfortable, talk to their dentist or pediatrician.
