Q:

hi moms...my baby is 4 months...guess her teething has started n so she keeps moving her tongue Over gums, rubs ears alot n wen takes feeding ( especially the afternoon n night) wants to keep nursing for almost any hour or so..wen I try to move her cries...any suggestions or experience to overcome this...



actual teething may start after 1-2 months. it's gum irritation prior to that. try giving her sum jaggery to lick. which wil divert her mind. showing sum musical light toys , etc

ok will try...though it's majorly in night that she fusses

Hey please don't feed anything to baby till she turns 6 months old. She should be exclusively on breast feeding. You can give her soft rubber toys/ bathing toys to chew, you get in hamleys. That will calm her. I won't recommend teether filled with water/gel as you need to be very very careful to ensure it dosen't burst in her mouth n she don't intake the content.
