Cold Washcloth

It doesn't get any easier than this solution if you're wondering how to soothe a teething infant! Put a clean washcloth in water, wring it out until it's barely moist, and then put it on a spotless surface in the refrigerator. When it has cooled, fold it and give it to your child to chew on to soothe their sore gums.

Cool Metal Spoon

What can you find around the house that is helpful for teething? Spoons! Take a tiny metal spoon out of the drawer in the kitchen, and place it in the refrigerator. When the spoon has cooled, gently brush your child's gums with the curved side.

Chilled Teething Toy That Isn't Gel

Wiping The Drool

Cuddles

Make sure your infant receives plenty of cuddles and hugs. An infant who is teething may find that spending time cuddling with you is the greatest comfort. Choose a cozy chair, then gently rock your infant. This will provide you both some much-needed alone time for hugs and consolation in addition to some peace and quiet.

Medication For Infant Teething

Ask your baby's doctor for guidance on utilizing painkillers or infant teething medications if you're worried that none of the aforementioned remedies will be able to ease your baby's teething discomfort. 

Some parents understandably have concerns about giving their children medications like infant acetaminophen for toothaches. The ideal person to ask this question to is your child's doctor, who can advise you on the best over-the-counter medication and ensure that the right amount is utilized.

Gum Massage

One of the finest teething therapies for pain alleviation is a light gum massage. Use your fingers to gently rub your baby's gums in a circular motion after cleaning your hands. It's okay if your infant naturally begins to suck or chew on your fingers.

Warm Bath

It's not always enough to just rub the baby's gums to calm them down. Give your child a nice, tranquil bath. It can calm their body and serve as a diversion from pain.
