Babies will start teething around six months of age, with symptoms lasting for a few days up to a couple of months. The upset signs your baby is teething will begin to appear, as soon as the baby tooth is trying to emerge through the gums.
Lots of new mothers will ask themselves, “what are the signs my baby is teething”, because they are not familiar with this milestone, in their infant’s life.
There are many baby teething signs, which run from mild to moderate. While only 1/3 of babies will suffer from some sort of teething pain, others will be lucky enough to exhibit only a few mild symptoms.
Infant Teething Signs
- Small baby tooth can be seen underneath the gum
- Red, swollen, and bulging gum
- Drooling continuously
- Seeking things to bite or chew on such as hands
- Sleeping difficulty
- Pulling and grabbing ears
- Rubbing face
- Refusing to eat
If your child exhibits diarrhea, vomiting, running nose, pulling and tugging on ears, which lasts longer than 24 hours, you should seek the advice of your pediatrician.
Infants under the age of 3 months should be seen by their pediatrician, if they are exhibiting a temperature over 100.4 degrees Fahrenheit or 101 degrees for children over the age of 3 months.
