Between the ages of 2 ½ and 4 years, babies begin to teething. Your baby may experience pain due to his/her sore and tender gums. To alleviate the pain, you can gently rub your child’s gums with a clean finger, wet gauze, or small cool spoon. It is also helpful to buy your baby a small chewable baby ring.
