During most parts of the baby’s growth, it is necessary to continue with a semi-solid liquid or, mostly, liquid food. This diet must go on till the second year of the baby. You must take enormous care in the management of the baby’s stomach as well as bowels. While teething, the baby faces even more of problems with bowel disorders and stomach disorders. Even the most common of errors in both diet and regiment will need to be avoided.
A baby is of a healthy constitution in which the powers of life are energetic with being nursed upon the breast for a long time but now the baby begins to go for an artificial diet. Upon feeding the baby with artificial food, disorder is imperceptible to the eyes. However, this is not so for the baby that is fed upon with artificial food right from the day of birth. As the baby grows into a stage where it begins to teethe, all infections and fevers will affect the baby.
Worms will form inside the baby’s stomach with frequent diarrhea, rickets, thrush etc. These diseases begin to develop on the baby during the teething. If you take precautions and feed the baby with proper diet, then the baby will be saved from some of these problems related to the bowels and the stomach.
If the baby is fed with mother’s milk in most parts of its growth, which is the natural diet for your baby in its first six months, teething will give rise to lesser symptoms of the diseases that precede teething. The symptoms will not cause too much of trouble and the parent will not have to worry too much about the baby’s teething symptoms.
The baby demands breastfeeding more often with complaints and restless behavior and increased crying. Vomiting and diarrhea are often found as the symptoms of teething. Babies must feel little thirst during this period with adequate moist to the gums. This can happen only with the help of offering the mother’s breast to the baby very often. Breastfeeding is a good remedy to the baby’s maturation as a child where teething brings in diseases into a baby.
But, in case, there is deficiency of milk from the mother’s breasts, which happens at a very early period after the child’s birth, taking malt liquor is dangerous as it will affect the health of the mother. At such times, regular exercise in open air and bathing in tepid or cold salt water will increase the secretion of milk which the baby can be fed with.
