Some Signs Your Child May Be Teething
When it comes to reducing fever or relieving pain in infants, Infants’ TYLENOL has been the brand recommended most by pediatricians for the last 20 years. Infants’ TYLENOL works differently than other pain and fever medicines. It also won’t upset little stomachs. If your child is under 2 years of age, be sure to ask your doctor.
Available as Grape and Cherry flavors.
Welcoming Baby's First Teeth:
Oh, the drool, the gumming on just about everything. We know it well. Teething is one of those special (but sometimes tricky to navigate) milestones that can mystify all new moms. Luckily, there are some easy ways to help soothe your little one throughout the process.
Some Signs Your Child May Be Teething:
Most babies usually get their first tooth between 4 and 7 months, but every baby is different. A few may not even get their first tooth until after their first birthday, but there’s no need to worry about timing. Most toddlers have a full set of 20 teeth by the time they’re three years old.
Gently rub your baby’s gums with a clean finger or offer a teething ring/ pacifier made of firm rubber.
Keep things cool
Chill a teething ring, pacifier or wet washcloth – but don’t fully freeze it. Anything too hard can damage your child’s delicate gums. You can also give your child cool, soft foods like applesauce or yogurt if she is eating solids.
What to avoid
Avoid rub-on teething gels or liquids for babies less than 2 years old. Many contain benzocaine, an ingredient that can cause dangerous side effects in young babies. Stay away from liquid-filled teething rings as they may burst. Old wives’ tales may say that rubbing a little liquor on gums can numb them, but it’s harmful for babies. Last, never tie a teething ring around your baby’s neck for easy access. Use common sense and you both will be fine!
Ear infections often start with a cold or other illness. This can lead to redness, swelling and fluid in your child's middle ear (behind the eardrum). Ear infections can be very painful for your child and sometimes cause fevers with temperatures up to 104°F. Your pediatrician may prescribe antibioticsto treat the infection, but you may have to provide additional relief for pain and fever.
If your child has a painful ear infection, he or she may have a hard time eating or sleeping. Babies may rub their ears, have trouble sleeping or cry more than usual. If you think your child has ear pain, or you see fluid coming out of the ear, call your doctor for an appointment.
Five Symptoms to Watch For: Watch out for these symptoms in addition to fevers as they may signs of a serious– and possible dangerous – illness. Keep an eye out for the following five symptoms, which could indicate a problem when coupled with a fever.
Your child has lost his appetite, has little energy, or is noticeably pale of flushed, or you notice other changes in his behavior and appearance.
Your child has small, purple-red spots on his skin that don't turn white when you press on them, or large purple blotches.
3. Difficulty Swallowing
Your child is unable to swallow and is drooling excessively.
4. Difficulty Breathing
Your child has difficulty breathing even after you clear his nose with a bulb syringe.
Your child seems delirious, glassy–eyed, or extremely cranky or irritable.
If you notice any of these symptoms with a fever, call your pediatrician right away.
In general, it's a good idea to check with you pediatrician if you feel uncomfortable about your child's appearance or behavior, no matter what his temperature is. Trust your gut.
Remember, too, that fever is only one sign of illness. Be sure to mention symptoms such as a cough and ear pain (if you suspect it) or vomiting and diarrhea – these can help your pediatrician make a more accurate diagnosis.
