Although milk teeth begin to emerge at the age of around six months, they actually begin to develop quite some time before the baby is actually born. By the time a child reaches the age of between two and three years, they should have grown their entire set of baby teeth.
The behaviour of a baby can change during the teething stages, but there are a number of ways that you can help your baby through the process. Below are some useful tips on what you can do to make the teething stages more comfortable for your child. If you are seriously concerned about your baby’s health, please do not hesitate to consult a GP or dentist.
While a baby is teething, you may notice a tendency for them to want to bite things more often than they usually might. Teething rings and certain teeth gels (as long as they are sugar-free) are proven to have been beneficial in this situation.
If you would like to get some further information on which medications are most suitable for your child, consult your GP who will be able to offer you the best possible advice.
