Baby feeling growing teeth

When it comes to development, child’s teething is one of those very long stages that seem to never end. There’s a lot pain, discomfort, impatience – and this isn’t just for the children but for the parents too.

A child’s teething stages

Milk teeth – Anytime from 0 to 6 months, the baby’s milk teeth start to emerge just below their pink, swollen gums. Expect constant drooling, lots of discomfort and even fever from babies.

Chipmunk – at 6 to 10 months, teeth begin erupting out. At this stage, the upper and lower central incisors (like a chipmunk) emerge first. Breastfeeding can be very uncomfortable at this time too.

Molars – at 10-14 months, molars start to come out in this particular baby’s teething stage. This is the point where sleep is almost non-existent and pain is constant for both parties.

Vampire – at 1-2 years, the canine teeth aka vampire fangs will emerge. As usual, pain, discomfort and fever should be expected.

Molars part 2 – the last baby’s teething stage occurs when the baby is about 2-3 years old. The big molars will emerge and this equals to double the pain and discomfort.

Permanent teeth – Your child’s permanent teeth won’t be ready to come in until some where around the age of 6.
