Bellamy's Organic Teething Rusks 100g
Made in Australia
From around 6 months, sometimes earlier, your baby’s teeth will be starting to come through. Teeth usually begin to appear at 4 - 7 months but for some babies even earlier, and of course, for others later. Your baby may start to dribble, and gums may be slightly inflamed and can look swollen, and will obviously be causing some discomfort to your baby. Your baby may pull their ears, have red cheeks and will begin to want to chew on everything.
Teething rusks can help.
Put a teething ring in the fridge to cool for your baby to chew on. The chewing down on something hard, crisp and or cold is soothing and helps the tooth break through.
Initially, babies chew with only their gums, and the first baby teeth are used to bite with. Chewing is an important skill for baby to learn; necessary for jaw development, which in turn is important for speech development later on:
The first teeth to arrive are usually the lower front teeth at around 4 - 7 months.
These are followed by the upper front teeth.
Upper side teeth come next, followed by lower side teeth.
The first upper molars appears, next come the first lower molars.
The upper canines then come in, one each side.
By the time your toddler celebrates his/ her first birthday party he/ she will probably have between 6 and 8 teeth. Between 1 year and 2 years of age, he/ she will have another 4 - 6 teeth, including the molars. The first molars come at around 12 - 15 months, and second molars around 2 years of age. The diagram below shows the typical order of teeth that will appear.
Teething may cause a toddler pain and a few sleepless nights.
