If your baby suffers with this too, make sure they get lots of nappy-free time with the air on their bottom, change nappies often. If possible, use cloth nappies instead of disposable diapers. Liberal application of a baby barrier ointment was a lifesaver too, as it helps to protect against the causes of nappy rash!
How can you help your teething baby?
Offer lots and lots of comfort and cuddles. Spend as much time interacting with the baby as possible, playing and keeping them busy and distracted from the pain.
2. Breastfeed on demand.
This is one of those times breastfeeding comes into its own, providing comfort, warmth and perfect mummy time for as long as baby wants and needs it. And if you think they're 'comfort feeding', so what? If comfort is what they need, let them.
3. Cold foods.
Once your baby is eating (only after 6 months of age), offer them cold apple puree straight from the fridge or ice-cold sticks of cucumber, watermelon, apple or pear to suck and chew on.
