Let’s help babies who are teething. Please share this with family and friends whose baby may be going through this very uncomfortable stage.
Is your baby over drooling? Is he or she getting more irritable than normal?
Every baby experiences teething differently from the time their first set of teeth emerges to the types of symptoms they may have.
So when does teething usually start? It really varies from one child to another.
However, according to WebMD.com:
“Teething usually begins around 6 months of age. But it is normal for teething to start at any time between 3 months and 12 months of age. By the time your child is about 3 years old, he or she will have all 20 primary teeth.”
When it comes to symptoms, expect your baby to have various teething symptoms.
According to pediatrician Deb Lonzer, chairperson of the Department of Community Pediatrics at Cleveland Clinic Children’s Hospital:
“No more than a third of babies have any one symptom … one-third of the kids might drool, another third might be irritable, and another third might have trouble sleeping.”
Although the teething stage could be a very difficult time for your baby, you could help ease the pain. By being aware of the teething signs, you’d know how you could comfort your little one.
