The Characteristics Of A Baby Will Be Teething?
Hello … my child is about 9 months old, from semalm fussing, sometimes the saliva is not normal and like biting toys, biting fingers … but appetite keeps on eating. Is it really a sign of tooth growth?
Thank you for the question on HealthReplies.com,
The condition of teething babies will be experienced by the baby as the baby develops and grows. Generally, babies begin to experience teething after reaching the age of 4-6 months. However, the process of growing teeth will continue with age. There are some signs that you can find from the growth of teeth in children, including:
The gums become swollen.
Babies tend to want to take things around and bite them.
More babies salivate.
Reddish rash that appears around the baby's mouth.
Babies have decreased appetite, or drink less than usual.
Babies who seem more fussy tend to cry more often.
Babies can have a fever.
The teeth appear from the gum area.
To deal with this, there are a number of things you can do to reduce your child's discomfort due to the growth of teeth including brushing the gums and baby's teeth that will grow with a clean cloth soaked in cold water, giving cold and soft cut fruit to help reduce pain and itching in the baby, giving it cooled beforehand. If the baby remains fussy, fever, which apparently is not related to the growth of teeth, it is advisable to consult a pediatrician regarding further examination and management. Avoid giving self medication without doctor's instructions.
