The Link Between Stress and Teething Pains
Infants will normally begin to develop teeth six months after they are born. While teething is slightly uncomfortable, were you aware that stress can worsen these symptoms? Why is this the case and how can parents help provide their young ones with a bit of relief?
– Stress can increase any pain that the child may be experiencing.
– Breastfeeding can reduce pain and inflammation.
– Teething toys may likewise reduce stress.
“Inflammation during the teething process causes your child’s mouth to hurt.”
