THE ARRIVAL OF BABY TEETH
Most babies will develop teeth between 6 and 12 months. Around 3 months of age, babies will begin exploring the world of their mouth and have increased saliva and start to put their hands in their mouth.
The first tooth usually appears around 6 months. Typically, the first teeth to come in are almost always the lower front teeth (the lower central incisors) and most children will usually have all their baby teeth by age 3.
Parents can ease teething pain by massaging their baby’s gums with clean fingers, offering solid not liquid filled teething rings, or a frozen or wet face cloth.
Baby Panadol is also a great comfort to a teething baby, guided by your pharmacists advice.
