In some ways, it might seem silly to talk about how you’ll be able to tell when your child is teething. You’ll understand the signs immediately, and everyone within earshot will too; the baby’s not exactly going to be mild-mannered about it. But it’s good to be prepared to aid your child early so you can keep the crying for a minimum, for your crying and also the baby’s.

Please note that not all children show the same signs of teething; most children will start teething between the ages of half of a year and one year. A few of the symptoms of teething include drooling, swollen gums, pearly whites visible beneath the gums, sleeping irritability, rejecting food and attempting to chew, suck and chomp into everything. If your child has a rectal temperature of more than 100 degrees Fahrenheit, please call our office as soon as possible. Other warning signs you should let us know about include vomiting, diarrhea and refusal to consume food or to feed.
