Teething Symptoms: What to Expect


Teething is a natural process that all babies go through, typically between the ages of 4 and 7 months. Teething can cause pain and discomfort for babies as their teeth break through their gums. Some babies may not experience discomfort, while others may experience various symptoms.

Common Teething Symptoms

  1. Increased Drooling: One of the most common signs of teething is increased drooling. Your baby may drool more than usual and develop a rash on their chin or face.
  2. Irritability: Teething can cause your baby to become more irritable than usual. They may cry more often or be more difficult to soothe.
  3. Chewing and Biting: Your baby may start to chew on their fingers, toys, or anything else they can handle. They may also bite down on things to help alleviate the discomfort.
  4. Swollen Gums: During teething, the gums surrounding the emerging teeth may become swollen and sensitive when touched.
  5. Disrupted Sleep: Teething can disturb your baby's sleep, causing them to wake up more often during the night.
  6. Loss of Appetite: Some babies may experience a loss of appetite or refuse to eat during teething.
  7. Ear Pulling: Your baby may pull or rub their ears during teething. This is because the nerves in the ears and mouth are connected, and the pain from teething can radiate to the ears.

Managing Teething Discomfort

  1. Teething Toys: Provide your baby with teething toys to chew on. These can be made of silicone, rubber, or other safe materials for babies to chew on.
  2. Cold Compress: Apply a cold compress to your baby's gums to help alleviate the discomfort. You can use a damp washcloth or a teething ring chilled in the refrigerator.
  3. Gentle Massage: Gently massage your baby's gums with a clean finger to help alleviate the discomfort.
  4. Medication: You can use over-the-counter pain medication, such as acetaminophen or ibuprofen, to help relieve the discomfort. Always consult with your paediatrician before giving your baby any medication.
