Children can be especially sensitive when their teeth are coming in, but there are things you can do as a parent to minimise discomfort and handle common teething symptoms.

– Chewing on chilled (but not frozen) foods like carrots or cucumbers can help.

– Gently massaging the gums can also bring relief.
