You adore witnessing your child’s first smile, giggle, and roll over for the first time. On the other hand, isn’t cutting their first tooth always so sweet (for you or them). Teething is how a baby’s teeth begin to emerge from their gums. Although this is a normal part of a baby’s development, it is one of those milestones that can cause discomfort, tears and even sleepless nights. A teether for a 3-month-old can help your baby in this regard.
It is unknown when your baby will begin the process.
Because a baby’s teeth can emerge without causing pain or discomfort, you may not realise they’re teething until you notice the first sign of a tiny white tooth. On the other hand, other babies experience discomfort as a result of teething.
Teething symptoms commonly include:
- face rash caused by drooling,
- chewing on various objects,
- irritability and irritability,
- refusing to eat,
- crying and
- Having swollen, sore, or tender gums.
Sleeping difficulties, flushed cheeks, pulling on their ears, and a slightly elevated temperature of around 99°F (37.2°C).
If your child shows any of these indications, make an appointment with their paediatrician.
- Teething symptoms can occur whether your baby is breastfed or bottle-fed. However, if you breastfeed or chest feed, you may notice other changes. Gum pain or soreness, for example, may cause your baby to latch on differently.
- You may feel your baby gnaw or bite down on your breasts before (or even after) a tooth emerges. Furthermore, breastfeeding is soothing for babies, so they may feed more frequently while teething.
- Remember that teething symptoms occur before a tooth breaks through the gum, so don’t be alarmed if you notice these changes in your baby but no sign of a tooth. Our teether can be useful for your kid.
What is the order of appearance of baby teeth?
The majority of babies lose their first tooth between the ages of 4 and 7 months. However, there is a wide range of when it is considered “normal” to begin teething. So don’t be concerned if your child hasn’t cut a tooth by the age of 7 or 9 months. Teether for 3-month-old can help kids to bear with the pain. If you have any concerns, you can always talk to their paediatrician at their next checkup.
To be more specific, most infants begin teething around six months. Generally, babies will most likely have a full set of teeth by the age of three, and the joys of the teeth-brushing routine will be well established.
Every baby is unique, so don’t afraid if all of your child’s little friends have already begun to cut teeth — yours will, too, in their own time. If you’re going to compare, consider when their siblings (if they have them) got their first tooth.
The bottom two teeth usually appear first, followed by the four upper teeth. Keep an eye on that area and brace yourself for cuteness overload when they arrive.
Following that, their teeth may appear two at a time, one on each side of the mouth. However, this pattern can change, and various factors can influence the timeline. For example, if your baby was born prematurely or with low birth weight.
Observe your infant:
- Infants born with teeth should be closely monitored because they can pose a choking hazard.
- Some infants are early teethers — and it’s usually nothing to be concerned about! If your child starts to show indications of teething around 2 or 3 months, they are simply ahead of the curve in the teething department. Also, if your child is a late teether, try not to be concerned about this (easier said than done, we know).
- Those sometimes distressing (but always perfectly normal) teething symptoms may come and go during teething. Alternatively, they may become more consistent as your child cuts new teeth or begins to feel the first signs of a tooth emerging.
- It may be possible that your child does not have any teeth by 18 months. As a parent, you can take your baby to a paediatric dentist for an evaluation. An underlying medical condition may cause a delay in teething in rare cases. These could include malnutrition, vitamin deficiency, and hypothyroidism.
- Speak with your child’s paediatrician if you’re concerned that it’s been a while since they cut their last one or two teeth.
Treatments and remedies for a teething baby:
It’s difficult to see your baby in pain when he or she is teething, so you may be more tempted to reach for that bottle of wine or chocolate bar. Baby, too, requires some reassurance. It’s natural for baby teether age to feel some pain.
- You can try the following tried-and-true — and, most importantly, safe — home remedies:
- Massage your baby’s gums gently with a clean finger, knuckle, or dampened gauze pad.
- Apply a chilled washcloth, spoon, or teething ring to your baby’s gums.
How long does baby teething last?
Each baby’s teething period is unique. Some babies stop teething around the age of 24 months, while others do not stop until 36 months. However, whether a baby begins teething at six months or nine months, they usually stop before three.
