    Signs your baby is teething

    Signs your baby is teething

    Teething is a normal developmental process in infants and typically begins around 4 to 6 months of age. However, the timing will vary from child to child, some babies can even be born with teeth (although this is rare).

    Here are some common signs and symptoms of teething:


    1. Increased Drooling: One of the most noticeable signs of teething is the excessive dribble. 

    2. Irritability: Teething can cause discomfort and irritability in babies. They may become more fussy, or have changes in their usual behaviour.

    3. Gum Swelling and Tenderness: The gums around the erupting teeth may appear red, swollen, and tender. 

    4. Chewing and Biting: Babies often find relief from teething discomfort by chewing or biting on objects. They may gnaw on their fingers, toys, or anything they can reach.

    5. Changes in Eating and Sleeping Patterns: Some babies may experience a temporary decrease in appetite during teething. Others may have difficulty sleeping or wake up more frequently during the night.

    6. Facial Rash or Irritation: The constant presence of saliva on the face due to increased drooling can lead to a rash or irritation around the mouth and chin.

    7. Low-Grade Fever: Some babies may experience a rise in body temperature while they are teething.

    It's important to note that not all babies experience the same symptoms, and some may go through teething with minimal discomfort. If your baby is experiencing significant distress or if you have concerns about their symptoms, it's always a good idea to consult a doctor for peace of mind.
