The baby is the heart of parents. When the baby is uncomfortable or crying badly, many parents will feel distressed and hurry to run to the hospital with the baby. Babies who grow to 4-6 months old begin to grow their first teeth, and then grow 20 baby teeth one after another. How should parents cope with fever, diarrhea and other symptoms during tooth growth?
Generally, babies begin to grow deciduous teeth from April to June. Usually, the lower incisors will grow first. After the first pair of deciduous teeth sprout, about every 4 months, a pair of teeth sprout, and 20 deciduous teeth can grow at the age of 2 and a half. Some babies will have irritability, poor appetite, restless sleep, drooling, fever, swollen and painful gums and so on. As long as parents grasp the accompanying symptoms that will occur during the baby's long tooth period and accurately take preventive measures, they can easily and happily watch the baby grow bit by bit.
First of all, be alert to the premature or late initiation of baby deciduous teeth. The baby sprouts deciduous teeth at birth or soon after birth. This kind of deciduous teeth usually have no root and are easy to fall off. If it falls into the trachea, it is very easy to suffocate the baby and endanger life. Therefore, when the baby's deciduous teeth sprout prematurely, the mother must take the baby to a professional hospital as soon as possible and ask the doctor for help. However, if the baby has not grown deciduous teeth at the age of 1, it may be caused by diseases such as gingival hypertrophy or rickets. The mother should take the baby to the hospital for a comprehensive oral examination as soon as possible.
Secondly, parents should do a good job in oral cleaning during the baby's long teeth. Although the teeth did not erupt completely, the cleanliness of the mouth directly affected the baby's tooth health. Every time the baby eats, he should be fed with boiled water to clean the oral cavity and gingival mucosa, or gently wipe the baby's gums with clean and soft gauze. Don't mistakenly think that the liquid such as sucking breast milk or milk doesn't need to be cleaned. Let the baby leave the pacifier as soon as possible, or don't sleep while drinking milk with the pacifier, which will cause tooth decay, which is often called 'bottle caries'. After the baby's front teeth completely erupt, the baby toothbrush can be used to brush his teeth to avoid or reduce the chance of suffering from oral diseases.
Then, when the baby is about to grow teeth, the tooth flesh itches, and everything he catches should be put into the mouth to bite. Adults need more care to prevent them from biting hard objects and damaging their gums. Things placed around it should not be smaller than the size of a table tennis ball to prevent it from being stuck or swallowed when swallowing. The pacifiers, gums and other toys that children often play and suck should be kept clean to avoid intestinal diseases caused by unsanitary. Parents have to repeatedly teach their baby not to put dangerous things into his mouth. Over time, he can tell which things can't be put into his mouth. Parents can also use the tooth trainer made of silica gel to let the baby chew in the mouth to exercise the baby's jaw and gums, so that the teeth are arranged neatly after eruption. You can also buy molars to promote tooth eruption.
For the possible discomfort symptoms during the baby's long teeth, director Luo Youtong reminded parents not to panic, judge whether the symptoms are within the scope they can deal with, and take relative measures to break them one by one. If the baby's symptoms are serious, send him to the hospital immediately. How should the baby's long teeth drool be handled?
Fever: some babies will have different degrees of fever when their teeth just sprout. As long as the body temperature does not exceed 38.5 & deg; C. And the spirit is active, the appetite is exuberant, the baby is not crying badly, so there is no need for special treatment. Just drink more boiled water for the baby; If the body temperature exceeds 38.5 & deg; C. Accompanied by irritability, abnormal crying, refusal to eat, diarrhea and other phenomena, you should see a doctor in time and ask a doctor to check whether it is complicated with other infections.
Diarrhea: some babies will have diarrhea when they have teeth. When the number of stools increases significantly, other supplementary foods should be stopped temporarily, feed the baby with digestible foods such as porridge or boiled noodles, and pay attention to the disinfection of tableware; If the number of stools is more than 10 times a day and there is more water in the stool, get medical attention in time.
Drooling: This is mostly a temporary manifestation of teething. Parents should wear saliva towels for their baby and dry the saliva in time. Use a soft handkerchief to wipe the baby's saliva at any time, and gently dry the saliva to avoid damaging the local skin. Wash your mouth with warm water, and then apply grease to protect the skin of your chin and neck. Baby's coat, pillow and bedding are often polluted by saliva. Wash and dry frequently to avoid breeding bacteria.
Irritability: when the baby before teething has symptoms such as crying, dysphoria and restless sleep, the baby may feel more comfortable as long as he is given molars to bite and divert his attention, or let the baby eat something cool, such as yogurt.
Gum swelling and pain: when some babies are about to grow baby teeth, their gums will be red, swollen and painful, especially when the first tooth and molar grow out. If the gingiva is red, swollen, thick or peripheral fever, it indicates that the gingiva is infected, and you should see a doctor in time.
Finally, director Luo Youtong suggested that parents should take their children to the dentist when they have just had their first tooth or when they reach the age of one year, and then go for a reexamination six months later. In this way, if there is a problem, it can be found and treated in time to avoid blind panic.
