Diaper Bag Checklist
Picking A Daycare
There really is no way
of getting around it. Teething. Teething is not the most fun youíll
have with your baby, but you can get through it. There are many ways
to ease the pain of cutting teeth. Have your doctor suggest a pain
reliever (usually Tylenol) if your baby seems to be in pain and/or
running a low-grade fever. Purchase liquid-filled teething rings and
either refrigerate or freeze them for cooling relief to your little
ones gums. Trust us, when your baby is teething in the middle of the
night and all you can think of is sleep, youíll want some quick tips
at hand. Teething babies needs to bite! You could use an ice-cold
washcloth for baby to bite on, itís very soothing to the gums or you
could try teething gel, such as Baby Orajel for a gum-numbing
effect. Also, let baby gnaw on frozen bagels and waffles. (Bonus,
they catch drool)
Speaking of drool, make sure you keep baby in a bib at all times
(except nap time) if you want to keep his/her clothing clean.
Keep a few spare bibs on you at all times during the teething
phase. Wet clothing or a wet bib against the face will cause
irritation to babyís skin. Plus, your sweetie will look that
much cuter in a clean bib and clothes. Those cloth diapers you
got for your shower really start to come in handy. They can be
used to wipe your little oneís face, or wipe up drool from their
toys and your furniture. You can also tie a knot or two into
them and give them to baby to chew on.
Teething wonít be so bad. Itís a unique developmental process for every child, and a learning process for every parent..
