Homeopathic Tips for Soothing Painful Teething

Do you need help because your baby is teething? Is he drooling, crying and refuses to eat?

Painful teething can be a tough time both for the baby and the whole family.The first tooth usually comes in when babies are between 4 and 7months of age.

Teething symptoms

Teething symptoms may include:

  • drooling
  • swollen or tender gums
  • refusing food
  • chewing on solid objects
  • irritability and sleep problems

Most pediatricians say that diarrhea, low fever or irritability aren`t related to teething but for many moms these symptoms are common for their teething babies.
You should always call your doctor if your baby has symptoms that worry you or a rectal temperature of 101 degrees F or higher.

Homeopathic medicines for sore gums

Teething can usually be handled at home with homeopathic medicines.
Homeopathy is a safe and natural way to relieve the red, swollen gums and the pain. Homeopathic medicines also help your baby calm down and get to sleep.

  • Chamomilla 30C is the most common homeopathic teething medicine. The baby is unbearable, angry and screaming. Baby stops crying only when carried and rocked or when riding in a car (it is the passive movement that relieves the pain). Teething is often accompanied by greenish diarrhea and/or earache.
  • Belladonna 30C - red, severely inflamed gums. Agitated child, can`t fall asleep. Teething is sometimes accompanied by tonsillitis or earache with high fever.
  • Calcarea phosphorica 30C - teeth are very slow to come and teething is very painful; the first tooth usually appears at 10-11 months of age. Cranky baby, it is impossible to sooth him. Teeth are decaying soon after coming in. Tall and slender child.
  • Mercurius solubilis 30C - excessive drooling, bad breath, coated tongue. Pain is often worse at night.
  • Pulsatilla 30C - a clingy and tearful baby, wants to be held and comforted all the time. Pain is relieved by sucking a cold teething ring or when breathing cool, fresh air.

You should give the medicine that most closely matches your baby`s symptoms.
You can crash the pellets or dissolve them in some water. In severe pain give the baby 5 pellets 3-4 times daily.
