Teething: Signs to look out for

Your little one’s teeth will soon begin to come out. It’s a wonderful stage! In this guide, you’ll read about the signs that let you know when your baby is entering his teething stage.

Teething signs

• A month or two before teeth come out, your little one can start to put any object in his mouth and bite it uneasily.

• Gum swelling and inflammation.

• Your baby may start to drool a lot; it can even lead to a facial rash.

• His gums may be sensitive, causing pain.

• He may refuse to eat.

• He may have sleeping trouble.

Not all babies will show these symptoms but if you notice this in your baby, you may expect his first tooth soon!

Teething aches

Teething can cause restlessness, irritability, and increased drooling. Some babies may be desperate and irritated because their situation is not comfortable at all. Other babies don’t seem to feel the change, their first tooth may sprout and they don’t even notice it. Now, despite being uncomfortable, teething should not cause too much pain, high fever, or diarrhea. If you notice any of these symptoms, it is preferable to contact your pediatrician.
