Teething

Few parents forget the emergence of their children’s first teeth. In most cases the memories are as painful as they are sweet.
As new teeth push their way through tender gums, children experience various degrees of discomfort and distress.

Your normally sunny toddler, who appears otherwise healthy, may suddenly be crabby and restless all night long.

Teeth appear at different ages in different children. In general, the front teeth appear during the child’s first year, and the first and second molars appear between the ages of 1 and 3.

For most children, the front teeth cause less discomfort, though some children fuss with the appearance of each tooth. The first and second molars, which cause more obvious pain, often disrupt eating and sleeping routines. The discomfort is likely to last a few days with each tooth.
