What are the signs that a child is teething?

Drool may start 2 months before the first tooth appears. When the teeth are just erupting, the small canines stimulate the nerve endings on the gums and increase the secretion of saliva, but the child is not used to swallowing too much saliva for a while, resulting in involuntary drooling.

Parents can wear a saliva towel for their children to reduce the prolonged contact between saliva and the skin, which may cause skin discomfort to the child.

Some babies may have a low-grade fever (generally not exceeding 38 degrees Celsius), the gums may be partially white or slightly red and swollen, and the baby is prone to irritability, insomnia, and does not like to eat

Babies will also frequently pull, scratch their ears, or slap their faces, as gum pain may spread to the ears and forehead.

When the baby is teething, it is easy to eat the hand due to the discomfort of the gums. Many mothers worry that the baby is not good at eating the hand, so they stop the baby. If the baby cannot pass the oral period smoothly, the baby will have certain psychological problems after adulthood, such as dependence smoking, chewing gum, and talking nonsense for security.

In fact, using baby teether can solve this problem. The teether can massage the baby's gums, relieve various discomforts during the teething period, and exercise the baby's chewing and biting movements. Teether can also soothe the baby's restlessness and increase the baby's sense of security.


When should I start giving my baby teether?

When the baby is 2-5 months old, the baby needs to rely on sucking for comfort. In addition, the teeth have not officially erupted, but at this time they already feel uncomfortable in the gums. The soft silicone teether can relieve the gum swelling before the baby teething pain.

When most babies are 6 months old, a pair of central incisors on the lower jaw begin to grow. At this time, the teether can massage and soften the central incisors to relieve discomfort. At the same time, it can also massage the gums, and the uneven surface of the teether can also stimulate the baby's brain development.

Of course, 1-2-year-old babies can also use teethers. Babies at this stage are in the period of molars. Using teethers at this time can reduce the swelling and pain of the gums caused by the eruption of big teeth, help strengthen the development of teeth, and exercise chewing ability.


Which teether is safe for babies?

1. Materials that can withstand high temperatures, such as silicone gutta-percha.
Silica gel is an inorganic polymer colloidal material, non-toxic, tasteless, stable chemical properties, soft, good elasticity, strong resistance to deformation, high temperature resistance, wear resistance, electrical insulation and other advantages. Due to its short production cycle and high productivity, it is the material of choice for gutta-percha products on the market today. The high temperature-resistant baby silicone teether can be cleaned and sterilized at high temperature from time to time to prevent the surface of the teether from being soiled and bacteria growing after use.

2. Choose suitable teether products according to the child's own allergies.
For example, some children are allergic to rubber materials.

3. Baby teether with safe structure
The main reason is that if the tips and ends of the teether are too small and long, the baby will easily go deep into the throat when sucking and biting, resulting in suffocation and regurgitation. To choose a silicone teether that has passed the US FDA and European LFGB tests, it is safer for babies to use silicone teethers that meet food-grade standards and pass the throat test.

4. For chewing gum that can make sound, pay attention to the sound volume should not be too loud.

5. When using, parents must accompany and take care of them to prevent children from dangerous situations.

6. The use time should not be too long, and it is necessary to consider replacing it in about 3 months. If damaged, stop using it immediately.
