Teething Prince and Princesses

Last week saw Prince George embark on his first foreign holiday to the exclusive Caribbean Island of Mustique. The bouncing baby boy was photographed looking adorable and cheerful embarking the flight with his proud mother, sporting a white and blue baby gro and a sun hat for his overseas adventure. 

Travelling with young babies can be difficult, especially on long haul flights. A change of routine, pressure in the ears, temperature variations and teething can all be factors leading to tears, so parents need to be extra prepared when planning for a holiday and flight. 

Prince George will be hitting the age when his milky whites start to poke through his gums. Whilst it is an exciting milestone it comes with dribbling, tears and swollen gums, so parents should pack teething remedies just in case.

Teething is the process by which infants teeth sequentially appear by breaking through the gums and can start as early as three months or as late, in some cases, as twelve months[i]. The level of discomfort caused by teething can vary greatly, but it is a process that all infants go through.

Common symptoms of teething include tender gums, drooling or dribbling; mood changes and feelings of irritability, crying, restless or trouble sleeping at night and mild fever,* all of which can leave both baby and mum exhausted[ii]. Teething tots and their parents will all need some help to provide relief from new and emerging teeth.

From the makers of Nelsons® Teetha, Nelsons Teetha Teething Gel is a homeopathic medicinal product used within the homeopathic tradition for the symptomatic relief of teething pain and the symptoms associated with teething, which are sore and tender gums, flushed cheeks and dribbling.
