1 Year Old Kid Has 2 New Teeth, Is That Okay?
morning, my daughter is 15 months old. but his teeth just grew 2 pieces in front. is it normal ?? if he eats rice like reluctantly unwillingly, I always make mushy team porridge. the problem is if he doesn’t want to eat … even though he likes cheese. then he was full of breast milk. the solution for me so that he can quickly grow new teeth huh? he was born forward 2 weeks before his time
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Frequently, babies will experience milk teeth growth for the first time at 5 to 18 months. The speed of this tooth growth can vary greatly without clearly knowing the factors that influence it. Many experts suspect a baby's slower tooth growth is influenced by a lack of calcium intake and inadequate stimulation provided. However, this conjecture still needs further proof of its significance through research on a broader scale. Not yet known is the direct relationship between the history of babies born faster (prematurely) with the delay in tooth growth in infants.
If before the age of 18 months your baby has experienced tooth growth, although only a few in number, chances are there is nothing you need to worry about. Children who feel more comfortable eating soft foods may be caused by inflammation of the gums that precede the growth of other teeth. This inflammation of the gums can obviously make a baby feel uncomfortable, especially when chewing food.
Not only that, your baby can also be reluctant to consume rice because he does not like the taste of rice. Like adults, babies also have a tendency to like and dislike certain types of food that cannot be forced.
It's a good idea to try to deal with your baby's complaints with the following steps:
Give the baby a bite toy (teether) that has been cooled and kept clean so that the growth of the teeth are always stimulated
Also give your baby enough milk, coupled with a varied MPASI menu, rich in calcium, for example sea fish (such as sardines, salmon), green vegetables (such as broccoli, spinach, kale, pakchoy), nuts and seeds , calcium-fortified cereals, and so on
If the baby seems reluctant to eat, try to make the eating atmosphere more pleasant, don't force the baby, teach the baby to eat alone while accompanied
Slowly, increase the texture of the food, do not always soft, may also be given finger food
Control your baby's regular growth and development to the doctor or pediatrician
Hope this helps ...
