Teething Symptoms:


In most cases, teething causes no trouble at all and hence there are no very significantly visible symptoms for this. Any symptoms your baby has are more likely to result from the eruption of the larger molar teeth which is quite rare. Your baby may have one or more of the following symptoms like a barely noticeable rise in temperature may occur immediately before a tooth erupts or feverishness will be due to another condition and must be reported to your doctor. Your baby may be a little irritable, sleep less well and require more attention for a couple of nights. But teething will not cause hours of prolonged screaming as the baby will be relaxed after sometime. Your baby's gums may look a darker pink and bumpy and this may indicate teeth eruption in sometime.

Teething pattern:
When a baby begins teething, there is no set pattern on when it will begin or it can not be predicted that how long it will take and how painful it will be. For a baby cutting a tooth might happen overnight without pain, while another child might have to go through a long, drawn out and painful experience which maybe scary for the parents as well. Sometimes It is seen that there is a visible rise or lump in the gum for several weeks, while sometimes there may be no visible clue at all until the tooth actually appears.
Teeth patterning:
The process of teething often follows hereditary patterns, so if the mother and father teethed early or late, your baby may follow the same pattern as per the genetic study. On an average it is seen that the first tooth comes in during the seventh month, although it can arrive as early as three months, as late as a year, or in rare cases even earlier or later. The symptoms of teething vary from child to child because of these different experiences, parents and physicians often disagree as to the symptoms of teething and how painful it is and every child reacts differently to the eruption of teeth.
