Signs that your baby is teething-
-irritability
-chewing their fingers
-chewing toys
-clingy
-fretful
-difficulty sleeping
-production of more saliva causing them to dribble
-crying
-swollen areas in the mouth where the teeth may be about to break through
-putting their fingers into their mouth




usually, the first teeth to appear are the two lower central incisors - or ‘cutting teeth’. These are followed by the two upper central incisors. By his first birthday, your baby may have six teeth since, once they begin to grow, they usually develop at a rate of around one a month

although this is just a guideline, your babys teeth will usually appear in this order:

6-7 months - four central incisors (cutting teeth)

8 months - four side incisors

10 - 14 months - four back molars (chewing teeth)

16-20 months - four canines (pointed teeth)

24-30 months - four more back molars


it is always important to remember that not all children teeth at the same rate. Some children still have no teeth after a year and others begin to teeth immediately. The rate at which a child's teeth grow is determined by their d n a, and does not influence how healthy the teeth, or the child, may be.

Helping your child to teeth

fruit and vegetables
to help soothe the discomfort of teething you will find your baby will want to chew toys , clothing etc. Slices of cucumber , carrot or a piece of fruit will help soothe you baby


teething toys

there are a number of teethers available in all styles , shapes and colours. Many of the teethers available give both stimulation to the child and provide aid to the sore gum . You will find fun shaped teether , massaging teether , cool ring teether some teethers also being tuneful.
