In some ways, it may seem ridiculous to speak about how you’ll tell when your child is teething. You’ll understand the signs right away, and everyone within earshot will too; the baby’s not exactly going to be silent about it. But it’s best to be prepared to assist your child right away so that you can keep the tears to a minimum, for your crying and also the baby’s.

Do note that not all children show the same signs of teething; most children will begin teething between the ages of half of a year and one year. Some of the signs of teething include drooling, swollen gums, teeth visible under the gums, sleeping irritability, rejecting food and trying to chew, suck and press their teeth into everything. If your child has a rectal temperature greater than 100 degrees Fahrenheit, please get in touch with our office asap. Other signs you should tell us about include vomiting, diarrhea and refusal to eat food or to feed.
