For those who are new moms, one of the things to watch out for during the first few months of baby is the ‘teething’ stage. My pediatrician already told me that Zeeka will be growing her teeth in a few months. I can actually feel the top of the teeth already trying to protrude through the lower gums. I think she’ll be having her two front teeth very soon!
She’s becoming very fussy already. She also always wants to put things into her mouth and she loves biting. She bites into yaya’s shoulders and she also loves biting when I’m nursing her (ouch!). Of course, I can’t blame her since I can just imagine how uncomfortable it is to feel that pain and itchiness in the gums. The worse part is that you don’t know how to explain these feelings to mommy, daddy or to yaya. What I do is just give her teething biscuits that she can bite on. I got these biscuits from Healthy Options.
Now that Baby Zeeka is eating and placing all these different thing into her mouth, it is the best time to start taking care of her mouth, gums and eventually, teeth.
I have already shared with you an Infographics on facts about caring for your child’s teeth ). I have also shared with you ways on how to care for your baby’s teeth in this link, http://mommyginger.com/2013/09/how-to-care-for-babys-teeth.html. Today, i’ll be sharing with you some tools that you can use for you to be able to carry on helping your child develop good, strong and healthy teeth.
This first chart shows the Primary Teeth Tracker. It also shows the month when the teeth will come out. But of course, this is just a guide. My cousins baby started developing molars first before his central incisors (soooo cool!).
The second chart is the Permanent Teeth Tracker. This is very helpful when your child is already starting to grow his/her permanent teeth.
Here is the dentist appointment sheet that you can use to keep track of the visits to the dentist.
And lastly, here is a teeth care chart that you can use when your child is a bit older to help your child keep track of brushing, flossing and chewing of Xylitol gum.
All of these charts are care of Lotte Xylitol Gum Philippines. This is to help parents and children fight cavities and make it zero. They are running the making it Zero Campaign. Here are some facts about the Make it Zero Campaign.
I hope that all of these downloads will help you care for your baby’s/child’s teeth. Mommy Ginger is very proud to be part of the Make it Zero campaign. For more information, please visit LotteXylitolGum.com.
