Babies - the biggest blessing to their parents in this world. As their parents - you would do anything to keep that smile on their face and relieve them of any discomfort. You just barely found a routine and sleep schedule for you and your baby, and now the fussing, drooling and slight fever are bothering your little one. Not to mention the constant struggle to keep anything in reach out of their mouth. Teething can impact your little one anytime and as early as 3 months old. So when is the right time to start preparing for your baby to start teething?
Teething symptoms can silently sneak up on you and your little one. Whether a very slight fever, profuse drooling, non-stop chewing on everything in reachable distance or the worst side effect of the emerging culprit - pain. These symptoms can come in bundles, or sneak up on you one by one. It is important for you to be prepared at first sight of any of these.
Ideally, you should use the peace and quiet you have before the arrival of your little one to look into tips, products and ways to help your baby when the first tooth is pushing through their gums. One of the most important factors to consider when choosing any product for a baby should be the materials and ingredients. Exposure to toys made with toxic ingredients can have long-term negative impacts and are anything but healthy or environmentally conscious. Because many companies producing products to help teething babies such as a teething necklace do not use non-toxic, organic, BPA free materials, it is smart to research and order products ahead of time.
Teething necklaces are a teething essential for you and your baby. Right around the time your little one starts grabbing anything within his or her reach and immediately steers it in the direction of their mouth, is the time you should have a quality teething necklace handy. Your teething necklace will be your number one tool and best friend during your babies lengthy teething journey.
