Teething!


Babies vary as to when, and in what order, regarding the arrival of their little 'pearls'. However, generally speaking, the estimated arrival timeline of baby teeth is:
  • Bottom two central incisors: 6-10 months
  • Top two central incisors: 8-12 months
  • Four top & bottom lateral incisors: 9-16 months
  • Four top & bottom canines: 16-23 months
  • Four first molars: 13-19 months
  • Four second molars: 23-33 months
Total: 20 baby teeth in the span of more or less 33 months (almost 3 years).

Babies might be facing some, if not all, of the following symptoms during teething (a tooth moves towards the gums and cuts through):
  • Chewing and gnawing own fingers and anything they put into their mouth
  • Drooling much more than usual
  • Irritable, cranky, and clingy
  • Might wake up crying in the middle of the night
  • Mild fever (below 38°C). Note: Some pediatricians rule this out
  • Runnier poop than usual (not diarrhea)
  • Nappy rash
  • Drinking less milk and/or eating less solid food
  • Tender and swollen gums where a tooth is about to cut through

My boy started excessive drooling when he was about 4 months old. About two weeks later, he was in a frenzied state of gnawing everything but preferred chewing my fingers. This lasted for quite a while. He had mild fever once. He was super cranky and clingy several nights for as long as I can remember. I bought an amber teething necklace for him when he was 5 months plus. His drooling reduced noticeably.

One day, he turned 6.5 months and his FIRST lower incisor cut through! Woohoo! I think the second bottom tooth is following soon.
