Children Aged 11 Months Have Not Teething?
my child is 11 months old, but not yet teething … What do I do … Even though it’s almost 1 year. If you are 1 year old before teething, it means he can’t eat rice in general, huh?
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
First teething is generally experienced by babies when they are around 5 to 12 months. Therefore, the condition of your baby who has not teetered at all at the age of 11 months is not necessarily abnormal. You need to be aware if your baby's teeth have not grown at all at the age of 18 months later. Fast or slow growth of baby teeth is not yet clear trigger factors. But genetic, nutritional intake, stimulation carried out, and several other factors are thought to influence.
If your baby is not teething at all, feeding of hard consistency should be limited. It is feared, your baby's inability to chew properly the food risks making him choke, experience constipation, and other digestive disorders. However, this does not mean that your baby can only consume milk or liquid food. You can feed it soft or semi-solid food so that it can still be digested by gutting or chewing with the gums. Giving semi-solid textured food is actually useful in stimulating tooth growth. Not only that, so that the baby's teeth grow faster, the following steps you can try:
Feed your baby enough milk
Also give him a variety of nutritious foods, especially rich in iron, calcium, phosphorus, magnesium, vitamin C, also vitamin D
Diligently clean the baby's oral cavity, ie with a clean washcloth moistened with warm water
Give the baby a bite toy (teether) that is cleaned and sterilized periodically
do not panic
Do not carelessly supplement babies without a doctor's prescription
If until the age of 18 months your baby has not grown a single tooth, or other complaints appear in the area of the oral cavity, do not hesitate to check with your doctor or dentist specialist (pedodonsia) huh ..
I hope this helps.
