Don't be afraid of those little teeth!
Teething, a natural process and part of baby’s natural growth.
Distressing for both the baby and the parents, teething is the process of the teeth breaking through the gums causing discomfort and pain.
Teeth don't usually appear until your baby is 6 months or later however they may show signs of teething from about 13 weeks on and off for around 2 years.

CUTTING THEIR FIRST TEETH...
...often means a disturbing time for babies. Teething rarely causes real problems, but even itchy gums can affect your baby significantly.
Whilst some teeth emerge with little or no pain or discomfort when cutting their first teeth, there may be times you’re your baby may be more restless, crotchety, cry more and sleep poorly. You may even notice a loss of appetite.
Signs your baby is teething:
red flushed cheeks
chewing on fists or toys
sore & tender gums
Give your child a teething ring to chew on – they will not only soothe their gum but will also help distract them from pain. Keep a clean one in the fridge and always follow the manufacturer’s instructions.
You can also give your baby healthy things to chew. This includes raw fruit such as apples and raw vegetables such as carrots. You should always stay close to them as they chew on these things, just in case they choke.
If your baby is in pain, try a children’s sugar-free painkiller such as ibuprofen or a children’s paracetamol suspension. Check the pack to make sure the product is suitable for your child's age. Seek medical advice before you consider giving your child pain relief and always read the label. Visit Easofen by Clonmel Healthcare for more information.
Did you know? Teeth start developing while the baby is still in the womb with tooth buds forming in the gums. All 20 of a baby’s milk teeth are already in their jaw at birth and some babies are even born with teeth in their mouth!
Did you know your teeth are completely one of a kind? Just like your fingerprint and your tongue print, yes your tongue print is uniquely yours. Not even identical twins have the same exact set of teeth.
Teeth are the only part of the human body that can't repair itself. Start brushing as soon as teeth come into your child’s mouth. Ask your dentist or healthcare professional for advice.
