Excited to see your baby’s first little tooth popping through the gum? Well, if you think that was cute, wait until the rest make their way out!
All babies are different and tend to cut their teeth at different times. However, most babies have their first tooth erupt before they turn a year old. Sometimes, pain and discomfort may accompany teething and give babies and parents a tough time. You may be anxious to do everything you can to soothe a teething baby. Let’s look at some helpful tips to manage the teething days of your baby.
Although the timing of tooth eruption may vary, the process typically begins when your baby is six to 10 months old. The usual order of tooth eruption is as follows:
By the age of three years, most children have all 20 teeth.
Every baby is unique; some may have no signs of teething, while others may show some of the teething symptoms listed below:
Most babies will show mild symptoms of teething. While some babies may have a fever while they are teething, it may not be associated with teething.

Try the following baby teething remedies to soothe a teething baby:
Do not use teething gels, herbal remedies, or over-the-counter medicines without your pediatrician’s approval. If your baby is very cranky, ask your doctor before you give them any medicine for pain relief.
If your baby has a fever or any other worrying symptoms, take him/her to a pediatrician to check if the problem is something other than teething.
As soon as the first tooth cuts through, schedule an appointment with a dentist. They will ensure that your baby’s teeth are healthy and advise you on taking care of your baby’s teeth. Talk to your doctor if your baby hasn’t cut a tooth by the time he/she is a year old.
You should brush your baby’s teeth twice daily as soon as the first tooth appears. Take a grain-sized quantity of fluoride-containing toothpaste on a baby toothbrush to brush the teeth. It is necessary to monitor your kid while brushing until he/she turns seven or eight years old.
Teething is a normal process that may cause some pain, discomfort, and irritability. Comfort your baby using the simple remedies discussed above. Seek your pediatrician’s advice to make the challenging teething days easier for both of you.
