For the first two years of life, your little one is in a constant state of “teething”. Meaning that their teeth are always moving slowly through their gums.
Studies show that symptoms associated with teething consistently occur only on a few days leading up to the tooth cutting and a few days after. Within this time you may see a few shorter naps and some trouble falling into sleep. I encourage you to stick to your routine, offer your child some love and support, and any kind of medicine they may require.
A well-rested child will handle teething better than one who’s not sleeping well.
If you don’t already have it in your parenting handbag, a damp facecloth from the refrigerator is the best remedy.
