What is Teething and What Can Be Done to Help it?

Babies’ bodies are always growing and changing, and the first year is no exception. Growing pains can become an everyday occurrence, and when your bundle of joy is in pain, it can be a stressful thing to witness.

We’re here to help you get to grips with teething, get through it as painlessly as possible, and get back to play and nap-time!

Typical timings for baby teeth coming through. 

Key teething symptoms

Symptoms differ from baby to baby, but it is important to recognise the signs in your own child and find the best methods to soothe them.

Easily identifiable symptoms include excessive dribbling and gnawing or chewing

A flushed cheek can also be an identifying symptom, as well as a reddened, sore gum around the emerging tooth

Restlessness, irritability, reduced appetite and disturbed sleep may follow, so keep an eye out for these symptoms

While pain and discomfort can ruin playtime, there are lots of easy methods for soothing pain and giving your baby something safe to chew on.

What can be done to help a baby through teething?

The urge to chew is natural, and a great place to start. The key is to give your child something safe and soothing to chew on.

The Neckerchew is an all-in-one teething aid designed to soothe your baby’s gums while keeping them dry and looking stylish.

Our unique textured teething triangle is designed to help your baby chew away their teething troubles. The teether is safe for baby’s use and is tactile and durable enough to handle chewing for all incoming teeth – keeping your baby calm and happy.

This can also help to keep your own nerves calm! The Neckerchew is an all-in-one bib and teething aid, your baby wears it, like they would a dribble-bib, meaning it cannot be dropped or lost – we all know the trauma of a lost toy! Of course, the fact that your baby is wearing their teething-aid is a great advantage from a hygiene point of view, as you won’t have to clean it as often as a traditional toy that has been dropped multiple times! It’s easy to wash – but this fantastic design means that your washing time is halved. The Neckerchew’s three layers of top quality, soft and absorbent cotton build ensure all that dribble is absorbed and held in place, while banishing nasty germs. It’s also reversible, giving you the option of patterned or plain so your teething tot can dribble and chew in style.
