Teething Troubles

Have you seen those pearly whites pop through yet? Often the waiting game is the hardest – your child has been drooling for weeks, putting everything in the mouth, and seems incredibly irritable all of the sudden. When you finally see that little ridge poking through the bottom gum, you feel like you can explain why they’ve been a “little off” for a few days!

Some children get teeth and you’d never know it; others won’t eat well, sleep well, or act well for a week while they’re coming in. Likewise, some teeth come in with no problem and others (molars often) come in with a vengeance.

Developmentally at 4 months, babies discover their hands and start to put objects in their mouths. As a result, the drool increases exponentially and everyone starts to think that teeth won’t be far behind. The lower incisors usually start to come in somewhere between 4-8 months.
