Baby teeth normally start to come in at 6 months of age, but the teething process can start as early as 3 months. It is a significant time in your baby’s life but can also be very painful and make the child very irritable.
Information is power and the more you know about baby teeth and infant teething the better, generally, we like to start seeing the baby when they get their first tooth to provide guidance and instruction. When a child is teething, they will have lots of saliva, swollen gums, and sometimes a slight fever up to 101 degrees.
If your baby has a high fever, vomiting, diarrhea, rashes, or a cough and congestion these are not normal signs for teething and you should contact your primary care physician.
