Jersey Village Child Care: The teething process

Posted on 12-10-2014

The teething phase in a child’s life is a stressful time for both parent and child. Your child will be experiencing pain as the teeth are pushing through, so you will need to provide special care to help your child through this experience. There are a variety of remedies that a parent can employ, but you should always discuss any such remedy with your pediatrician. Here, we offer some information about the teething process and symptoms:

The teeth appear in a sequential order

When a child begins teething, the teeth will start to emerge in pairs, set by set, starting with incisors. Each child will begin the process at a different time and this has no impact on the health of the child. Timing can be as early as three months or as late as twelve months. Female infants tend to start teething sooner than males.

Symptoms of teething

Symptoms will vary from child to child, and some infants seem to bear this process with little or no pain, while others experience a lot of discomfort and can be very fussy. The process generally begins a few days before the teeth start to emerge, and a baby may show signs of drooling, fussiness, or sleeplessness. Other symptoms can include an infant gnawing on the fingers or being unwilling to feed. The gums will begin to get sore, and the infant may exhibit a mild fever. Once the teeth have broken through the gums, the pain normally subsides.
