The baby teething: how to help in this situation?
Each mother carefully monitors the development of her baby, knowing when the baby should start to hold the head, turn over on the tummy, sit and confidently hold the back. A very important event in his life is teething. But since this process is quite painful, parents are trying to help their child to the maximum and ease pain. What can be done when teeth are cut? How to help the baby?
Parents are very important to know when they begin to cut teeth in babies. First of all, in order to prepare oneself for this, and also in order not to confuse eruption with other processes. One of the most common mistakes of parents: the process of formation of the salivary glands is simply confused with the beginning of teething. This is due to the fact that the active salivation in the baby is taken as the beginning of the growth of the teeth, and does not take into account the age of the child.The active formation of the salivary glands occurs approximately at the age of 3-5 months. The teeth begin to erupt somewhat later. Therefore, parents should not rush things.
So, answering the question about how much the teeth are cut in children, it is worth noting that these terms are individual for each individual child. After all, organisms are not similar to each other, and the processes can both begin and proceed in completely different ways. But there are averaged terms, which are often the parents. So, the first teeth, the lower incisors, should make their way into the baby at about the age of 6-9 months. But there are exceptions when a child at 4 months is the owner of the first Zubikov or when the old man is still smiling with an empty mouth. Such situations are possible, but if the baby did not get the first teeth by the year, it’s better to consult a doctor and find out if everything is in order with the child. Further, teething occurs in pairs and ends approximately at the age of 28-36 months. By the age of three in the mouth of a toddler there should be 20 teeth.
The process of eruption can also be accompanied by some symptoms, thanks to which the parents determine that the time has come for the next tooth.So, most babies become moody, often crying for no apparent reason. They may refuse to eat. Also, the eruption may be accompanied by symptoms similar to colds: runny nose, fever, cough. Still possible vomiting and loose stools in the baby.
