Teething isn’t fun for baby. You may notice an increase in fussing or crying, drooling, biting, and a loss of appetite when your baby is around 3-12 months old. To help comfort baby while they’re teething:

-Give them chilled washcloths and toys (not frozen)
-Rub baby’s gums with your finger
-Keep a routine to help with trouble sleeping
