What are the signs of teething and how do you recognize them?
Teething usually begins when babies are between 5 and 6 months old. However, every child is different, and some may start teething earlier or later… However, if there’s one thing that all babies have in common, it’s that they all share the same early signs of teething, which are essential to recognize.
These are the most common symptoms of teething in babies:
– Irritability & Restlessness > For every baby, pain is unavoidable. They don’t understand what’s happening to them but can feel the changes going on inside their tiny mouths. This makes them restless and so they communicate the only way they know how: by crying.
– Gum Inflammation > As each tooth erupts, the baby’s gums become sensitive and inflamed. The area around the tooth may change colour and become red or even blue. In addition to swelling, gums may also become bruised.
– Excessive Drooling > A very common sign when babies are teething. They salivate a lot more than usual and drool nonstop. Careful, don’t try to stop this—saliva helps keep the baby’s mouth moist. This is essential in protecting their gums and reducing swelling.
– Lack of Sleep > Of course, symptoms don’t only occur during the day. The pain can cause disturbed sleep making it almost impossible for you or your baby to get any rest. Fatigue builds and everyone’s nerves are put to the test.
– Rashes > During teething, rashes may appear around the affected area on the baby’s cheeks. It’s also common to see visible rashes on the baby’s buttocks.
– Diarrhea > It’s common for babies to develop transient diarrhea when sprouting their first teeth. It’s easily identified by soft, pale stool that’s smellier than usual. Diarrhea should not be ignored, and it’s always a good idea to ask a health professional for their advice in order to rule out the possibility of an infection.
