When Will My Baby’s Teeth Come In?


An important part of your baby’s
development is when her teeth come in. Did you know that babies are actually
born with all their undeveloped teeth in their jaws? They’re known as tooth buds and
their the foundations of what will become baby teeth. When they are ready,
they push through the gums. Baby teeth are very important to your child’s
health and development. They help him or her to chew, speak and smile. When your
baby is between four to six months, the first tooth may begin to appear. Every
child is different, but usually the first teeth to come in are located in the top
and bottom front of their mouth. Signs that your baby is teething can include
fussiness, drooling, lack of sleep or loss of appetite. Diarrhea, a rash or fever are
not normal for a teething baby. If your baby has a fever or diarrhea while teething
or continues to be cranky and uncomfortable, call your pediatrician.
Sore gums are common in a baby that is teething. Gently rubbing your baby’s gums
with a clean finger, a cool teething ring or moist gauze pad can be soothing. Avoid
over-the-counter benzocaine products for children younger than two. Most children
have their full set of 20 baby teeth in place by age 3. Adult teeth start to appear
around age 6. Time flies so fast that pretty soon she’ll be placing her tooth
under her pillow for the tooth fairy. To learn more about taking care of your
