Baby Teething Info

Teething is the process by which an infant's first teeth (also referred to as "baby teeth" or "milk teeth") appear by emerging through the gums. Teething may start as early as three months or as late as twelve months. The first teeth usually appear between six and nine months. It can take several years for all 20 teeth to complete the tooth eruption; they typically arrive in pairs. Though the process of teething is sometimes referred to as "cutting teeth", when teeth emerge through the gums they do not cut through the flesh. Interestingly, certain chemical messengers are released within the body that cause some cells in the gums to die and separate, allowing the teeth to come through.

Teething may cause a slightly elevated temperature in the infant. Higher temperatures during teething are usually due to some form of infection, such as a herpes virus, initial infection of which is extremely widespread among children of teething age

Before treating a baby for teething, it is important to know what is causing the baby to be upset. Rubbing a finger gently along the gums in search for swollen ridges or the feel of a tooth below the gums is one way to be certain. If unsure, it is recommended that the child be seen by a pediatrician before treatment is administered.

A teething ring is generally a soft plastic device that can be chewed on and allows the baby to break down some of the gum tissue which promotes the growth of the teeth out of the gum. Some teething rings can easily be broken or damaged, so other types of teething devices can be made from household items. Placing a wet washcloth in the freezer for a few minutes and then applying it gently to the gums can be effective, but care must be taken not to expose a baby's gums to coldness for too long.

Infants chew on objects to aid in the teething process. This can be dangerous if the baby is allowed to chew on objects which are small enough to be swallowed or which could break while being chewed and cause choking. Teething rings and other toys, called teethers, are often designed with textures that will appeal to an infant during teething. Drawing water into a pacifier and freezing it as another way to offer a teething child relief. The cold pressure on the gums gives relief without making the child’s fingers cold.

Some infants gain relief from chewing on cold objects. Some children respond well to chilled foods. Suggestions for chilled foods that might appeal to a baby include applesauce, yogurt, and pureed fruits.

Dentists recommend brushing infants' teeth as soon as they appear. It is not advisable to wait for the teething process to be complete. Dentists may recommend against the use of fluoride toothpaste during teething.

Certain therapeutics are often applied to the babies' gums to relieve swelling and pain. These gels are similar to the toothache gel that is used by adults for sore gums and toothaches, but is administered in much smaller doses. Teething gels work as a numbing agent to dull the nerves in the gums so that the pain is less noticeable. It is important to follow the directions on the package to ensure that the correct amount of medication is administered and that proper techniques are used to reduce the risk for infection. It is important not to let the medicine numb the throat as it may interfere with the normal gag reflex and may make it possible for food to enter the lungs.

There are natural health remedies that may help alleviate the pain felt by the babies teething.

  • Amazing


    We started giving this to our 10 month old son who has constantly been sick and had never slept through the night.
    What a change! He now sleeps through and when he wakes in the night can generally settle back down by himself.
    We are amazed and have been telling everyone about our successes!
    We are also giving it top our 3 year old son, it helps him have a more settled sleep!
    Love this product!



  • Weleda teething powder


    A+++ The perfect product for babies teeth, works so well.



  • Awesome teething product


    This is our absolute go-to for any signs of teething. We have a bottle upstairs in her bedroom, one downstairs and one in the nappy bag! It seems to work really quickly everytime, and even when she's upset but we're not sure why. She's really happy to have it sprayed in her mouth so she must like the taste too! We've tried other remedies which seemed to have little effect but would highly recommend this one.
