Teeth Discomfort for Your Little Boy
Boys are from Mars, and girls are from Venus, right? That said, boys and girls grow differently and experience different stages in teeth development. That is why our baby boy growth chart templates will help you plan and prepare when to expect your little guy’s first tooth.
Sadly, these tooth eruptions are painful and uncomfortable for him. To ease the discomfort, here are some tips to consider:
- Use a cold washcloth or chilled teething toys. Make sure not to make them too cold since it might cause more harm.
- Rub or massage the gums with clean fingers. Applying moderate pressure can keep the pain at bay.
- Wipe off the drool. Too much drool all over the face and cheeks might cause irritation.
- Use pain medication safely. Give pain-relieving medications suitable for babies, but consult a doctor first.

Checking Your Baby’s Health
Just like other biological changes in our body, teething affects the health of babies. Thus, the following are medical concerns to expect when teething:
- Coughing. Babies may cough or gag due to all the drool in their mouth collected by painful tooth eruption.
- Waking up at night. Tooth discomfort does not happen only during daytime, but they also make night visits.
- Lack of appetite. The pain makes the thought of food uninteresting to the baby. The more they eat, the more they experience aches.
If these issues persist, this could cause an alarming change to your baby’s health. A baby weight chart is a beneficial tool to check if your teething baby is still in the right weight. And for severe medical concerns, it’s best to consult a pediatrician immediately.
