Teething or baby tooth eruption occurs when their first set of teeth erupts through the gums. Your baby will begin teething around 6 months. Teething can start anywhere from 3 to 12 months. Baby teeth can begin forming before they are born.
Tooth buds start to grow during the second trimester. Once your baby is born, the roots develop, and the teeth get pushed up until they erupt through their gums. Most babies have 20 teeth at three years old.
Each baby shows different signs of teething. Some babies experience no symptoms of teething, whereas other babies experience a lot of pain. Here is a list of common teething symptoms include:
1. Facial rash
2. Mild temperature
5. Ear rubbing
6. Redness or swelling of gums
7. Biting or sucking
8. Ear rubbing
