Baby approaching the 6 month milestone? Prepare yourself for teeth! Along with rapid growth, rolling, crawling and babbling, you can expect your child's very first teeth begin to appear between 6-10 months old. Teething can be painful, but there's lots you can do to help sooth your child's pain and prepare yourself before teeth begin to appear. Keep reading to find out more about teething and how to ease discomfort.

When do babies start teething?

Teething is when the gum opens up to allow teeth to push through. Whilst in very rare occassions some babies are born with one or two teeth, or some begin to appear at 3 months old, you can generally expect most children to commence teething from 6-10 months old. By 3 years old, most children will have all 20 baby teeth.

What to watch out for when your baby is teething?

Some of the signs that many parents notice when their children's teeth are coming through include:

  • Rubbing gums together
  • Extra crying
  • Cranky mood
  • Difficulty feeding
  • Upset stomachs
  • Fever
  • Diarrohea

When do babies need teethers?

When your child shows signs that they're teething it's the perfect time to introduce teething soothers. We recommend having some teething objects to hand from around the 3 months old mark so you're not caught off guard when you notice the first signs of teething.

How to ease teething discomfort?

There are a few things you can try to help make your baby feel a little less discomfort when teething:

  • Try a baby teething ring
  • Pop your teether in the fridge so it's cold (not frozen)
  • Rub their gums with a clean finger
  • Offer a sugar free rusk to suck on
