Teething Guide

Teething Guide

We have put together a helpful guide for you so you can know what to expect and when.

Stage 1: (0-3 months) Babies are born with 20 ‘milk teeth’ waiting under the surface of the gums to make an appearance. Some babies are even born with a tooth already erupted, thankfully this is rare (for any of you expecting your first baby and are planning to breastfeed!).

Stage 2 : (3-6 months)  The symptoms of teething will start to appear around this time and it’s a great idea to start stocking up on things you may need.

Symptoms to look out for are:

  • Red/hot feeling cheeks
  • Sore or red gums
  • Disturbed sleep
  • Loss of interest in food
  • Rubbing of the face
  • Diarrhoea
  • Dribbling/drooling
  • A lot of chewing and gnawling on the hands (perfect timing for a Gummee Glove!)

Stage 3 : (6-10 months) The first teeth start to make an appearance, although every baby is different and some can start way before this. The upper and lower front teeth will start to break through the gum and you should be able to feel the hard bumps below the surface with your finger. 

Stage 4 : (10-14 months) It’s time for those back teeth to make an appearance! The molars will start to erupt through the gums around this time and being back teeth you may not notice them as easily as the front incisors. Look out for any of the symptoms mentioned above and some parents notice an increase in the severity of the symptoms at this time.

Stage 5 : (16-22 months) Around this stage your baby’s canines will start to break through, these are the sharp, pointy ones that can be found next to the front teeth.

Stage 6 : (25-33 months) This last stage is probably the worst stage for your little one. This is when the biggest teeth start to come through at the back of the mouth. The last of the molars is seemingly the most painful of the teeth to erupt. Expect a cranky toddler and prescribe pain relief and lots of cuddles!

When you find out you’re going to have a baby you make lists of all the things you are going to need, pram, bottles, nappies, cot, babygrows etc etc. However we rarely think about those white daggers from hell that will turn our little angels into grumpy angels….teeth!

Gummee Gloves are perfect for teething babies 3-6 months (although most 7/8 month olds still use them).
