Teething is a stressful time for baby and parents. Find out more about teething on the NHS website here.
Using a cooled teething ring can help relieve symptoms when teething as they give your baby something to chew safely. This may ease their discomfort and distract them from any pain.
Never tie a teething ring around your baby’s neck, as it may a risk of choking.
Teething can start at anytime from birth but the first tooth usually erupts around 6 months. You will notice your little one chewing on their fingers, toys or other objects they can get hold of.
If your baby is 6 months or older, you can give them healthy things to chew on e.g. raw fruit and vegetables. Pieces of apple or carrot are ideal. Always stay close when your baby is eating in case they choke. Avoid rusks because nearly all brands contain some sugar. Tooth decay can develop from the first sign of a tooth in the mouth so avoid any foods or drinks that contain sugar. The more time sugar is in contact with teeth the more likely the result will be tooth decay/cavities. Stick to milk or water for drinks – babies aren’t born with a sweet tooth and try and keep any sugar containing food to mealtimes only.
DO NOT FREEZE – just cool in the fridge.

Cleaning your baby’s gums with xylitol wipes will help create a healthy environment for the new teeth. Xylitol helps to reduce plaque biofilm and also stops the decay causing bacteria being able to harm your baby’s teeth. If parents or carers have had active tooth decay in the previous two years they may have a lot of the decay causing bacteria in their mouth which can be transferred to baby. Using BrushBaby xylitol wipes can help to reduce the risk of tooth decay developing in your little ones mouth. PRevention really si better than cure. Baby teeth are very important for eating, speech development and appearance. Tooth decay and early tooth loss can lead to a range of problems not least is pain and discomfort.
Toothbrushing should start as soon as the first tooth starts to erupt. Use a dry soft toothbrush and a smear of toothpaste with at least 1000ppm fluoride. Children don’t have the dexterity to clean teeth properly so it is important that parents/carers brush thoroughly all surfaces of the teeth at night and one other time every day.
