Kids Home > Teething
Teething is the stage of your child's life when the first teeth begin to come in. When the teeth come up through the gums, they can cause significant pain. Because this condition is temporary, treatment involves relieving symptoms; if your baby is having discomfort, you can place something cold on the gums or give him or her over-the-counter pain relievers.
What Is Teething In Infants?
How Do I Know When My Baby Is Teething?
- Increased drooling
- Hand biting (your little one may find comfort in shoving their entire fist in their mouth, not just a thumb)
- The new or increased need to bite or chew on anything (just like a puppy)
- Nighttime wakefulness
