As every child is unique, teething is a different experience for every child. My son is 2.8 now but when he was only 3 months old and started drooling, my family’s elderly ladies cautioned me this as a teething symptom. However, his first tooth came when he was 6 months old. All this time, from his third month to finally the sixth month, I spent in waiting to see him teething. Other than drooling and very less biting, there were no as such symptoms of teething in my son’s case. In this article I will be sharing Common Symptoms of Teething in Babies
Not all the kids face the same teething time; some of them even have virtually no symptoms. And a few of them experience teething pain for months. Thankfully there are some common signs to look for and be ready:
There is no fixed time when the first tiny tooth will show up. But commonly at 6 months of age, most of the kids get their first white Perl. You might have heard a few strange cases as well. Like; a baby born with a tooth in her mouth, tooth coming very early during second to the third month, and child got her first tooth after she completed one. No fixed pattern at all.
The most common are two teeth in the bottom center and then top two center. Then the pattern typically goes outward with the lateral incisors, followed by the first molars, or the molars closest to the opening of baby’s mouth. But my son got his top tooth first. So again there is no fixed ordering.
Honestly, I feel blessed that my son didn’t face much while teething. He was neither extra cranky nor fussy. But typically kids feel achy and soreness with itchiness in their gums.
The intensity of these symptoms (or any others) varies from baby to baby. Fortunately, my son passed through this with ease but you can probably expect to see at least some, and maybe many, of these symptoms while your baby starts teething. Be watchful, Moms! So these are the common symptoms of Teething in Babies.
