Even though most babies will be fussy and irritable when teething, it is an exciting milestone in their development. Memories of those first two teeth and the smile that shows them off, is something that will leave lasting memories and THE most adorable photos.
Teething usually starts around four to eight months and continues until 30-36 months when the last set of molars appear. Signs of teething typically show up a month or two before the first tooth appears, and there are signs you can look for to know when that first tooth is near. Here are 6 signs your baby is teething.
As you can imagine, it can be painful when those little teeth rise closer to the surface. Baby’s gums may become sore which leads to increased fussiness and crying.
A teething baby will typically put just about anything in their mouth. The counter pressure from biting can alleviate the pressure from under their gums. Because they will put just about anything in their mouth to help relieve the pain, a lot of babies start gnawing on their hands which can cause chapping and spreading bacteria. The Bazzle Baby Chew Mitt Teething Mitten provides safe and natural teething pain relief with a BPA free, bacteria resistant silicone teether. Plus, your baby will love the mixed nubby textures and crinkly mitt for added cognitive stimulation and entertainment!
Caused by the pain in their gums that can travel to the cheek and ear, it might look as though your little one has an earache, but the pain in their gums can spread to the ears and cheeks. If the ear pulling is accompanied by a fever, check with your pediatrician to make sure it is not an ear infection or something else.
Around 4 months of age, you might notice that your baby is starting to drool which is stimulated by their incoming teeth. As you know, every child is different so some babies may drool a lot which can cause a rash around the mouth, cheeks, chin and neck area due to the extra bacteria on the skin from saliva. Try to keep those areas as clean and dry as possible with accessories like the Bazzle Baby BandaBib Teether that absorbs every drop of drool and Drool offers germ-free pain relief with the attached teether that is within arm’s reach for your little one.
Some babies may experience low-grade fevers, runny noses, or coughing while teething. Notify your pediatrician if baby’s temperature rises above 102 degrees Fahrenheit.
You’ve finally reached the point where baby sleeps through the night, Hallelujah! Now, all the sudden your child is waking up crying or fussing. No need to worry, it’s likely due to teething or a growth spurt, this is just temporary.
