Baby Teething Age, Symptoms, Pain & Remedies To Quick Relief

    Teething occurs when a baby's teeth first begin to push through the gums. Although the timing varies widely, most babies begin teething by about age 6 months. For those who like to know the age babies start teething, there are many factors that affect this. It could be hereditary or nutrition.

    Some babies start teething at 6 months, some 3 months of age, some 10 months, 15 months, 7 months etc.The two central front teeth that appeared at the bottom from (lower central incisors) usually sprung up first before others.

    After that, the two top central front teeth ( upper central incisors). Teething is highly welcomed by the parents of the baby and the babies usually exhibit new behavior and they're happy as well as they tend to smile more than before especially if it's their first baby.

    The most common signs and symptoms of baby's teething include:
    Drooling, usually occur when the baby is about eight weeks before the first tooth sprung. the baby becomes cranky and grouchy as a result of her swollen gums which is usually characterized by pain and the sudden interest in chewing any solid material he could hold.

    Many parents suspect that teething causes fever, pain in the ear, high temperature and diarrhea but researchers say this isn't true.

     I've had some parents who claimed that baby teething is very stressful to the baby in that, the growth and shooting of the tooth from the gum requires alot of communications in the brain and this stress lead to the high body temperature usually experienced by the babies and the pain in the ear.

    This is very funny and untrue. Diarrhea which is also perceived to be one of the signs and symptoms of teething by some parent is just misinterpretation of the fact. Teething usually excite babies and their point of gratification is also the mouth at this stage which made wanting to put almost everything they lay their hands upon in their mouth.

    When the free range of babies are not controlled and if the environment is not sanitized, they are prone to take dirt into their mouths which result to diarrhea.

    Teething may cause signs and symptoms in the mouth and gums, but it doesn't cause problems elsewhere in the body.

If you would like to use bottle, make sure you fill it with water. Also note that, Prolonged contact with sugar, milk or any sugary food may cause the tooth to decay or weak.

    3. Keeping the baby cool. A cleaned cold washcloth or teething ring could provide relief to the baby and you should never try to give a frozen baby's teething ring or extremely cold teething ring to your baby in order not to do more harm than good to the baby you're trying ti help out of discomfort. It's advised that, If your baby has begun eating solid foods, you can offer foods like milk, yogurt or applesauce.

Therefore, it is necessary to dry clean the drool in their mouth, prevent  irritation to the baby's skin by using a cleaned handkerchief to dry your baby's chin and make sure the baby sleeps on absorbed clean bed sheet at all time.

    Try an over-the-counter product. There are some medications you can use for your teething babies such as, Acetaminophen (Tylenol, others) or ibuprofen (Advil, Motrin, others) to help relieve them from pain and discomfort. You should be careful not to give your baby some products that may be harmful to the babies.

    For example drugs that contain aspirin may not be suitable for the teething baby. Also, try to avoid teething medications that are used directly on your baby's gums as there's no wisdom in doing this, exposing the baby's gum into chemicals.

    Be aware that, the medications you intend to use directly on the baby's gum is very much likely to be washed into your baby's internal system when the baby starts drooling and there's possibility that it may not work before it's swallowed. There other complications which may result from this, especially on the baby's throat.
