Teething, such a bitter sweet moment for parents! You are so excited that your baby is GROWING TEETH, but you are also sad that your baby is GROWING UP! They will not stay little for ever and teething seems to be serious proof of that.

When might teething begin?

Teething typically begins in the 4-6 month range of your baby’s life, however, some babies begin as early as 3 months of age! If you notice bumps or white bumps on your baby’s gum line it is safe to consider that they may have begun to teeth!

Is teething as bad as they say??

The hard part about teething is seeing your baby fuss or loose sleep or seem very uncomfortable! The good thing is is that once the tooth erupts from the gum line, the teething usually becomes better and easier to handle. Almost unnoticeable. But while the tooth is working on erupting your baby may be very uncomfortable.

How many teeth will come in at once?

Typically 1-2 teeth work their way in at once. Sometimes the body works a little to bring in a few teeth and then the body takes a break and works on pushing one at a time through the gums.
