Your baby does seem to be starting with the early signs of teething.If his gums seem to be worrying him apply a small amount of Pansoral gel to the centre part of his lower gums where his first teeth will come through. This should be when he is about 6 months.

Hi Ria. Pansoral gel did not help at all for my LO. Try Prodol Gel or Vidol powders. If you put Pansoral on your own gums, you will see you also will feel no reaction.
