Teething

image by bebemagico.com

Babies teethe at different ages. They usually begin teething about four to five month of age. This will continue until
all of their baby teeth are in. The two bottom teeth usually come in first and then the four upper teeth.When your baby's teeth come in will most likely depend on when your own baby teeth came in. Fro many babies, teething can be very uncomfortable, There are a few thing that you can do to help your baby while teething. Let your baby chew on:
  • A cold teething ring made of firm rubber
  • Baby wash cloth that has been wet and put into the freezer
  • Your clean finger (you can also rub their gum with your figures)
  • Popsicle made of real fruit juice or ice pop
Teething may cause a slight fever. Your baby may be more fussy than usual and hard to comfort. All twenty of your child's baby teeth should be in by age 2 1/2.

REMEMBER- Baby teeth are very important. Good dental health begins with those first teeth!
