Teething trouble

Every baby goes through it


Health Visitor says

´╗┐It can help to give your baby something hard to chew on, such as a teething ring. Teething rings give your baby something to safely chew on, which may help to ease their discomfort or pain. Some teething rings can be cooled first in the fridge.

All sorts of things are put down to teething - rashes, crying, bad temper, runny noses, extra dirty nappies - but be careful not to explain away what might be the signs of illness by saying it’s ‘just teething’.
