Each baby is different and the teething in the child can vary too. So though there is no fixed pattern of teething in babies, this article gives just a hint of what a parent has to expect at the time of teething. This article lists all of what every parent needs to know about baby teething.

Some babies might have teething without any problems, but there can be babies that suffer a lot from pain when the teething starts. It can be painful that makes the baby irritated and the child may cry for a long time with no obvious reason (if you have not realized that the baby is teething). Many children have visible lump over the gums where the teeth will erupt sooner or later. This is the first sign that parents usually note and realize that their baby is teething.

Some parents may need to wait for a long time before the lump becomes a visible teeth. The teeth first appear usually in the sixth or seventh month and some babies have it a bit later too. There are instances where the teething occurs in the third or fourth month. Some have it more than a year after their birth.

The milk teeth

The teeth that come out are the milk teeth as some call it. They are also called as primary teeth or first teeth. Each and every parent should know that the teeth start falling out from the age of six and new teeth replace the first teeth. This process can go on up to the age of twelve. Some children may have the teeth falling and growing later than what has been said here.

Pain during teething:

Many children suffer with various symptoms associated with the process of teething. The pain when teething occurs is the primary and most common symptom. The baby cannot express the pain without crying. So the baby may seem irritable and cry a lot because of the pain associated with teething.

Relieving the pain of teething:

There are some simple methods of decreasing the pain associated with teething that every parent needs to know. The best method of relieving the pain is to provide counter pressure to the baby. The baby may want to bite on something soft that will protect the gums, but at the same time can help it feel better. Some babies like to bite their parents' hands. Many teething toys are in the market now that are soft and provides a base for the baby to be able to bite. This relieves the pain and irritability to an extent.

Other methods of providing relief:

The other methods of providing relief for the baby is to give cold liquid or cold food. This helps to decrease the pain. The cold numbs the pain and the baby feels better. Care should be taken that the food or water is not too cold. Medications for pain relief can be administered after consultation with a Pediatrician. Never self medicate your child, as it can be fatal most of the times.

These are the things that every parent needs to know about baby teething
