How to soothe 10 month old teething ?

Hi, My baby is 10.5 months old. He had total 4 teeth in 8th and 9th month. From past 2 days he is very cranky and has been rubbing all 4 teeth and biting everything all the time. No other symptom apart from this. Can i give him fevago for his crankiness? And how much to be given? Any other ways to soothe his teething irritation.

  1. Hello and thank you for posting us on Medimetry.Teething normally starts anytime between age of 3 months to 12 months.Soreness and swelling of gums,mild fever,fussiness is common during teething.You may move a clean finger on babys gums for 2 minutes 2-3 times a day.Give baby soft foods.Ice cube application may help in relieving pain.If pain is severe you may give baby Syrup ACETAMINOPHEN when there is pain.For exact dosage you need to consult a doctor since its prescribed as per body weight.Do not give it frequently because it can mask other symptoms.If you feel baby is having high fever,baby is lethargic or very irritable consult a Paediatrician.Hope this information helped you.Write back to us.Take care and good day!
