sleep, fever, loss of appetite,
have all been blamed on teething.
Many diseases have progressed
too far because the teeth Just
happened to be erupting when the
infant became ill. Your doctor
should be notified with the same
objective that you would use if the
child had a complete set of teeth.
The treatment of this elusive
condition of teething has also been
the province of grandparents
since the beginning of time. They
have prescribed everything from
sassafras tea to rubbing the gums
with Paregoric. Probably the safest and most common remedy
was the teething ring. This gadget
started out being a piece of leather and now is clear plastic that
can be chilled for extra comfort.
Today we also have many ointments to rub on the gums. Also,
there are sedatives to be given

remember about teething Is not to
let this ordinary problem be the
reason for overlooking some
much more central problem.
Fever over 101 degrees rectally
is not due to teething. Neither is
vomiting and diarrhea for more
than 24 hours.

From Stork To Finish
Teething may have the same
significance, and be as uneventful, as growing of nails or hair.
This statement takes care of the
majority of babies; however,
some infants have a difficult and
painful experience. There is no
way of predicting which infant
will suffer through this very
necessary growth process.
Teeth normally erupt between
the sixth and ninth month of life.
The gums appear swollen for
several months before tha actual
teeth appear. Sometimes the
gums are discolored and even
blue, this is due to the bleeding
beneath the gums as the teeth
push forward. The swelling and
discoloration of the gums does
not always signify pain. The pain
of teething is unexplainable. Some
children suffer and no evidence
of swelling is found.
Bleeding of the gums to the
outside is very unusual. If this
occurs, ask your doctor to examine the infant for other
such as thrush or virus
diseases, which may be coincidental to the teething.
Many diseases have been
blamed on the act of teething.
Such symptoms as diarrhea, runny nose, diaper rash, disturbed
