When does a baby start teething?
At around 4 to 6 months your baby’s tiny tooth buds begin pushing their way through the gums. But don’t panic if your baby is older and still has no teeth or if your child got his first tooth earlier than 4 months – teeth come when they want to. In fact, many babies are born with teeth!
In what order do teeth appear?
The incisors in the middle of the lower jaw come first, closely followed by the top pair of incisors. The big back molars appear by the end of the second year. By the time your child is two and half he should have all twenty teeth. These teeth will begin falling out when your child is about six years old – then you’ll have to go through the teething process again.
Signs of teething
• Flushed cheeks
• Dribbling and drooling
• Refusing food
• Sensitive, red gums
• Chewing and rubbing the gums
• Restless nights
