1. Teething babies drool A LOT, and drool-soaked clothes can irritate their delicate skin. Keep plenty of drool bibs and burp cloths on hand, and dress your baby in easy-off shirts for quick changes.  

2. If drool rash becomes a problem, Aquaphor Baby Healing Ointment can be used to soothe, and to protect to help heal chapped, irritated skin on your baby’s face and neck.  

3. Not all teething toys are the same. Younger babies need easy-to-hold teethers, and older babies will benefit from unique shapes that can reach their developing molars. Make sure your teethers are nontoxic, age-appropriate, and given to your baby under adult supervision.

4. Some people have linked teething to diaper rash. If that’s a problem for your baby, don’t forget to make Aquaphor Baby Diaper Rash Cream part of your regular diaper changing routine.  

5. Teething can mean bad news for your baby’s sleep (and yours!), so consider adding some extra rocking and snuggles to a calming bedtime routine when your baby is cutting a tooth.
