Teething begins around three or four months for most babies. The teething process can lead to fussiness, poor sleep and a lack of appetite. Teething babies may cry more often, and parents may feel helpless and want a solution. There are various methods for dealing with infant teething, and learning them can help to ease pain and stress during this period.

Chewing to Relieve Infant Teething

Teething babies love to chew or bite anything that they can find. While an infant may be content sucking on her fingers, many options are available to allow her to chew for pain relief. One option is to buy a toy specifically geared toward teething infants.

Teething toys are often plastic rings full of water, that can be frozen or placed in the fridge. This method of cooling the toy provides additionally pain relief to swollen, sore gums.

There are newer, creative teething toys that may soothe a fussy baby while easing pain. Toys that vibrate when chewed are a great option. These toys not only provide an item to chew on, but also the soothing vibrations, which may help a baby forget - even temporarily - about how sore his mouth is.

Teething Pain Relief Remedies

Babies who become extremely irritable during teething may need more than just a toy to relieve pain. While some parents choose infant acetaminophen or ibuprofen to relieve teething pain, there are also some natural options to choose from.

Boiron makes Camilia, a homeopathic blend that comes in pre-made doses. This teething remedy is made with purified water, belladonna, chamomilla and ferrum phosphoricum. Each individual dose is easily administered - just twist off the end and squirt the mixture into the infant's mouth!

Now I hope you have learned some good ways to cope with infant teething. Here is an article about teething symptoms and treatment, that can help you to further soothe your child as he goes through this big milestone in his life!

      When my daughter was at that stage, my grandmother told me to freeze a clean face towel for a few minutes or so. When the towel is already cold enough, I would give it to my daughter to chew. I think the cold temperature of the towel relieved her pains and that her focus was transferred to the towel instead of the teething sensation she felt.
