Every child suffers from the side effects of teething due to the excessive use of energy due to physical effort. There have been several side effects, a few of them have been discussed for a better understanding of baby attitude by the parents.

 

Viral Infection - Teething leaves the baby's body prone to viral infection as a result of which the baby suffers from fever, cough, sneezing or viral problems in the body. It occurs because the pain due to teething utilizes the baby's body energy to overcome it, as a result, leaving the body vulnerable to attacks by either bacterial or viral infections. In most cases, the baby suffers from viral infections, like influenza.

 

Parents are advised to take precautionary measures for their baby to overcome the viral issues when it comes to the baby's health conditions. This might be temporary but may cause permanent damage if not taken care of it on time.

 

Electrolytes Imbalance - One of the biggest side effects of teething is the loss of appetite. babies refuse to intake food due to the unbearable pain in their mouth and as a result they may lose body weight. The immune system of the baby depends upon how their bodily strength is maintained but if they're not in-taking food then in might leave the body to some issues like electrolyte imbalance where the body nutrients might not be sufficient to support the baby's strengthen muscles or bones in general.

 

To overcome the damaging after-effects of the electrolyte imbalance due to the lack of appetite, parents should follow the instructional lists provided by the baby's doctor for the teething stage.

 

If there are still some issues regarding their health condition then bring them to the doctor immediately.

    Most of these teething toys are round or oval and babies can't get to the back teeth. This elephant is great because not only does it have different textures but the elephant's trunk is ideal for pushing towards the back teeth! Exactly what we were looking for.

    Great baby item, easy for tiny hands to hold and not a item I have to worry about gagging. I like the safety and independence of this teether, better than the banana teether (you have to watch baby to make sure they don't gag). This one is easy for our son to sit and sooth independently with.

    I wish this toy had been around when my 5-year-old was teething! The large hole in the center allows my kiddo to easily grab, hold onto, and maneuver the teether. The teether holds temperature rather well too. It is my kid's favorite teether out of the 8-10 I have given him to try.

    I bought this because it is not filled with anything and I was hoping it was the soft silicone that bends and holds up well. I am happy to say it was everything I was hoping for. I love the texture and the softness of the material.
