Are you looking for quality baby toothbrushes and baby bath accessories in Malaysia? There are tons of reliable baby stores out there selling baby essentials! Apart from brushes and bath accessories though, don’t forget to buy baby teething toys. This is one of the most important things on your baby shopping list, since you wouldn’t really know when your baby would begin teething.

Is your baby sleepless at night, and irritable during day time? Then, most likely, he or she is already teething. Remember, your kid was born with 20 primary teeth, all below the gum line. All of these would usually come through between 6 to one year of age. By age 3, babies are expected to have their entire set of baby teeth.

Baby Teething Symptoms

Normal:

  • Appetite loss
  • Irritability
  • Drooling
  • Fussiness
  • Trouble sleeping

Not Normal:

  • Diarrhea
  • Rash
  • Fever

Your baby may have tender or sore gums when teeth start to erupt. Rub their gums gently with a little cool spoon, moist gauze pad, or clean finger. You can also buy a clean teether for him or her to chew on. Just remember to buy the ones made of pure rubber. As much as possible, avoid giving plastic objects or liquid-filled teethers that can easily break. Not all objects marketed as baby teethers are safe.

The FDA recommends that caregivers and parents not use benzocaine products for kids who are below 2 years old. According to them, benzocaine drugs must only be used by adults, as well as children who are 2 years and above. Why? Using these products involves serious risks, and provides no benefits in treating oral pain.
