The Cause Of Children Aged 1 Year Has Not Teething?
Hello doctor I want to ask. My friend has a child about 1 year old has not yet teething. I guess what is the cause. Thank you
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Some babies experience first teething at a fairly early age, which is around the age of 5 to 9 months. This often worries mothers whose babies have not teething even though they are more than 1 year old. In fact, as with other aspects of development, the speed of teething in each baby is certainly also different. Exactly what factors influence, until now there is still much debate. However, many sources say that this condition is closely related to genetic factors, nutritional intake, and stimulation provided.
Most pediatricians agree, if the baby hasn't teething at all at less than 18 months, mothers can do the following tips:
Give the baby enough milk
Also give MPASI babies a healthy and nutritious, rich in calcium, such as broccoli, spinach, sea fish, whole grains
Increase the consistency of the MPASI, don't be too soft
Give the baby a bite toy (teether)
Always monitor baby's growth and development at the nearest health facility
However, if after passing the age of 18 months there is still not a single tooth that grows, do not hesitate to check the baby directly to the dentist or dentist specialist (pedodontist) so that the best treatment is done right ..
I hope this helps.
