My Story of Teething


Hello Friends!

This is my first time on the writing front, pardon me for my mistakes.

You might be wondering what prompted me to write, actually my one and a half year old son is teething, and one of my friends told me about an article on teething , I read it through and felt like sharing my experience on the same…

When it comes to teething , I find myself helpless as a mother sometimes. I just can’t forget those screaming nights.

It’s not conjuring, but the piercing cries of my son that haunted me the most.

My son’s first tooth came at 11 months end or you may call at 12 months, by the end of one year it was completely visible.

Trouble started from 6th month on wards. He used to put each and everyone’s finger in his mouth to soothe his gums and that of his aunt’s (taiji) was his favorite.

Jokes apart, the initial phase didn’t trouble him much, but the situation was different in the later stage.

It is truly a very difficult phase both for the mother and baby. Presently, we are in the later stage of teething, and my baby is so much in pain that he rolls over the bed and beats his head on the wall.

Sometimes, I am unable to handle the increased crankiness. And in order to calm him down,I pretend to cry in front of him . The reaction is sweet literally, “he comes to me , kisses me and starts crying again”.

This is the time when I feel helpless as a Mother, “Oh God, Please be nice with my baby, I just can’t see him like this”. I keep on praying.

Hats off to all the Mothers and brave kiddos who are teething! Wish you all the very best ! This too shall pass!

Tip- I am a doctor and a doctor might offend this, but this one is a tried and tested dadi maa’s nuskha or tip you might call it- You can rub Dikkamali Powder to soothen teething baby’s  sore gums.

  1. I feel your pain as went through this three times when I had my boys. One of the things that really gave them relief was to place their teething ring in the refrigerator. Doing this made it cold and when they bite on the ring the coolness soothes their gums. I wish you all the best and soon it will be over.

  2. This is a great post. It reminds me of when my kids were teething too. As a mommy, you would feel helpless sometimes. You’re doing great. Sending you hugs and love.
