How do I help her sleep when she is teething?
Teething can cause pain, which can also cause problems sleeping. When teething, your little one may need some additional comfort from a caregiver during the night. Remember that we no longer use topical teething agents that numb gums since they can cause problems with swallowing. Talk to your health care provider to see if it is appropriate to give your little one something like acetaminophen for pain. You can also try to put something cool on the baby’s gums for temporary relief.About Dr. Debra Babcock
