All babies are different with teething. My youngest child started teething and cut her first tooth at 3 months, but normally it’s more like 6-8 months that babies start teething. Make sure you check out the printable teething schedule at the bottom of the page!
When Do Babies Start Teething?
Teething usually begins around 6 months of age. But it is normal for teething to start at any time between 3 months and 12 months of age. By the time your child is about 3 years old, he or she will have all 20 primary teeth. The lower front teeth usually come in first.
What are Baby Teething Symptoms?
These are common signs of teething:
- Swollen, bulging gums
- A tooth visible below the gum
- Trouble sleeping
- Trying to bite, chew, and suck on everything
- Rubbing her face
- Rejecting food
- Grabbing her ears
If you notice several of these symptoms together, it’s very likely that your child is teething – but there’s always the chance that it’s something else.
