What Is Baby Teething? | When Does Teething Happen?

Teething is the act of when you baby starts getting their first teeth. This can give you several symptoms which we will go over. It's important for you to realise all babies are different so not all symptoms may come all at the same time. 

This is because some babies are born with their first teeth. Others start teething before they are 4 months old, and some after 12 months. But most babies start teething at around 6 months.

Baby teeth sometimes emerge with no pain or discomfort at all. At other times, you may notice that:

  • your baby's gum is sore and red where the tooth is coming through
  • one cheek is flushed
  • your baby is dribbling more than usual
  • they are gnawing and chewing on things a lot
  • they are more fretful than usual 

We take this in mind with making tag blankets and dribble bibs with teething corners that are made of silicon and BPA free. Being attached to soft fabric this is perfect combination for teething on the go and not needing a separate muslin or blanket to soak or chew threw.
