Teething: How to Soothe Pain Without Medications

Most babies get their first teeth somewhere between 4-7 months, although the first tooth may come a little earlier or much later. When teeth start coming in, they often cause a lot of pain. You’ll find that your baby is drooling a lot, fussy (or maybe full on crying) biting on everything, and/or having trouble sleeping at night or waking up crying as if in pain. It’s hard to see your baby in pain as their teeth are coming in. Many parents want to avoid using medication whenever possible. Here are some ways to soothe teething pain without medications.

One of the signs of teething is that your baby starts gnawing on everything. The idea behind many teething toys is that counterpressure helps relieve teething pain. You’ll find lots of great teething toys that have bumps or ridges so that babies can bite on them to soothe sore gums.

If you’re looking to avoid plastic teething toys due to BPA or phthalate concerns, there are more natural alternatives like silicone, latex, and wood.

Cold

Coolness also helps soothe teething pain. Many teething toys have the ability to be placed in the refrigerator or freezer before use for added relief. If placing them in the freezer, however, remove them before the inside fully freezes. And only use solid filled teething toys. Liquid filled ones often break apart. Alternatively, you can wet a piece of cloth and place it in the freezer for a few minutes before giving it to your baby.

Often these methods are enough to provide pain relief to your teething baby, and the hard part doesn’t last long. Once the tooth breaks through your baby’s gums, the hard part is over.

We understand that many parents want to soothe teething pain without medications, but if all else fails and your baby is not getting relief from the above methods, don’t feel bad if you have to give your baby some teething gel or Tylenol to feel better.
