Signs of baby teeth will come out.
Given that this process is different for every baby, some common symptoms are:
- Gnawing / chewing on something. Chewing instinct is probably a response to the strange sensation that is felt by the baby, to something that is going on in his gums.
- Swelling of the gums, before the teeth come out, the possibility of swollen and red on the babys gums. Sometimes you can see the faint bulge in the teeth in the gums.
- Salivate excessively, increase in saliva can be a sign the baby will grow new teeth, but also a normal developmental stage in the baby. So do not automatically assume that the excess saliva mean the baby will grow teeth.
- Fussy, especially at night. When the tooth moves through the bone and gums, sensation tends to appear gradually. These activities are more prevalent at night than during the day, so your baby may be more sensitive at that time.
- Pull the ear. This can be a sign of ear infection, but also can be symptoms of teething babies. The pain of the jaw is also transferred into the ear canal.
- Changes in eating habits. Babies who eat solid foods may want to nurse or bottle-feed more because a spoon irritates their inflamed gums. People who are adults may be doing different thing, they will eat more than usual because it will feel better either. And infants who are still drinking from a bottle or breast may begin feeding eagerly but pull back because of the activity of sucking puts uncomfortable pressure on the gums and ear canal.
