Easing Teething Pain While Traveling


Posted on 6/25/2017 by Dr Mark Mutschler
A young boy suffering from a toothache.
When you are traveling, there are a lot of things to keep in mind. However, if you are traveling with a teething toddler, that list can exponentially grow.

As a way of helping your child ease their teething pain, you may want to keep a few things with you during your travels. Here are some things that can help make that pain a bit easier on them, and in turn, you.

Items to Have on Hand for Traveling and Teething


You should have a couple of clean washcloths with you. These are easy on the gums of a teething baby or toddler, and easy to dip into cold water to chill for them.

Even if you are out at a restaurant, you can dip part of the washcloth into ice water and give it to them to chew on. This can help them actively do something about the pain, and allow them a bit of relief.

You should also consider teething jewelry. There are companies out there that make beautiful jewelry for parents with teething children.

You can go out, looking nice while wearing a necklace or a bracelet, and not feel bad that your child wants to pull and chew on it. They're designed for that purpose. If you wear them anyway, then grabbing them while traveling should be second-nature.

If you remember before you head out of town, you can also add a teething gel into the diaper bag. These are easy to use, and allow you to simply paint a bit of pain relief on to your child's gums as needed. However, sometimes these simple things are easy to forget in the rush to get out the door.

If you need more tips about traveling with your teething toddler, contact our office today. They have lots of tips that can make this process easier.
