Baby teeth – how can something so small be so frustrating?

Baby teeth! They can be a source of pain and frustration for both you and your baby, or they may be completely trouble free. I was lucky with my daughter, one day I looked in her mouth and there were these two perfect little bottom teeth! Go Welcome Parenthood to get more details about parenting & baby health.

If your baby’s teething experience is less than ideal don’t let it get you down, it’s only temporary.

When do babies start teething?

Most babies’ teeth emerge when the time is right. Meaning they start to come out at around three months, but more commonly at six to seven months when babies start on solid foods.  First to be seen are the two bottom teeth, then a month or two later the four top front teeth make their appearance.

The first molars, or back teeth, come out around 12 months of age ready for some serious chewing. Next come the canines followed by the second molars. By the time baby is three years old, she should have twenty baby teeth (or milk teeth) now that’s just a general guide, and it doesn’t always happen that tidily.

Teething symptoms

How can you tell when baby is starting to teethe? Most babies will chew anything, and I do mean anything, they can get their hands on. Anything and everything will end up in their mouth! Don’t be too concerned about germs and bacteria at this stage, this is when they’re developing their immunity and a few germs won’t hurt them. Perhaps keep the garden manure and kitty litter tray out of reach… although I’m told some babies have consumed these and are still with us!

You may notice your baby is drooling more than she used to. The teething process does stimulate drooling and keeping her dry seems like a never ending challenge. Just give her a wipe when you walk past as drooling can cause a rash. Don’t worry, it won’t last forever.
