Baby Teeth Growth
Baby Teeth Growth – Each baby will have different teething periods, but usually the beginning of infant growth between the ages of 4 months to 6 months, but sometimes there is more than that even less. And every parent can not predict exactly when the teeth begin to appear on the baby.
However, some signs may indicate that teeth will begin to grow. The type and also the level of the signs of the growth of the gig is quite varied in one infant to another.
For some babies, dental growth can be interpreted as a period of extreme discomfort and also a time when it will cry a lot because of that growth. While other babies may have passed the period of teething fast enough, even without too many complaints.
Here are 12 signs or gameplan will begin the growth of teeth in infants. But these signs do not mean all babies will experience it. As mentioned above, sometimes there are babies who have some signs below, some are small or even have no signs at all.
12 Signs of Dental Growth in Infants
- Spilled saliva. Keep in mind that dental growth stimulates salivation and this event usually occurs in infants aged 10 weeks to 3 or 4 months.
- Rash on the chin or face. If your baby is in the teething season and he or she exerts a lot of salivae, you may experience a dry skin rash that appears around the mouth area, as well as your chin (sometimes occasionally in the neck area). The cause is direct contact with the saliva itself. Wiping the baby’s saliva with a handkerchief or the like can help reduce the possibility of a rash. Using a special skin cream for babies can also be done.
- Cough. The amount of saliva can also make the baby become choking and coughing. If not accompanied by signs of flu, colds or allergies, of course, this one sign is not to worry about.
- Babies Often Bite. The pressure caused by the tooth that gets out through the gums usually causes the baby to feel uncomfortable. The discomfort is ultimately released through the bite, to anything from a toy designed to a baby whose teeth are growing to the nipple (if the baby is breastfeeding) and fingers.
- Pain. The inflammation that occurs in the soft tissues of the gums can cause extreme pain in some babies although sometimes it has no effect on other infants. The first tooth is usually the most painful when it grows (including the molars known as the most painful). However, some babies end up feeling familiar with the pain that occurs when the teeth grow so they no longer care about it.
- Fussy. Your baby’s mouth will hurt when her little teeth suppress the gum area that immediately comes out. Because of this, it is only natural that these events make the baby uneasy. Some babies may only be fussy for a few hours, however, some other babies may continue to be fussy for a few days or even weeks.
- Refused to eat. Uncomfortable, a fussy baby may be soothed by giving a baby bottle or breast milk. However, please note that breastfeeding may make the painful gums feel worse. For that reason babies whose teeth are growing become fussy (either because they feel very uncomfortable or hungry). Babies who have been able to consume solid foods also usually refuse to eat during this growth period (even so, this needs to be checked back to the pediatrician to make sure that your baby is not avoiding some foods).
- Diarrhea. Experts actually have determined some common issues that arise during the period of teething, however, some parents get the fact that their baby
- Low fever. It seems that doctors are reluctant to associate dental growth with fever, as it may happen at the same time when the first tooth comes along with low levels of infant immunity that make them susceptible to infection as well as health disorders. However, as with any type of inflammation that may occur in other parts of the body, inflamed gums can sometimes cause the low fever. This type of fever can be treated with the same care as other low fever and also consult a doctor if the fever lasts up to 3 days.
- Weak. Dental growth does not only work during the daytime. Along with the emergence of your baby’s teeth, discomfort will also be experienced at nightfall (even when he managed to sleep soundly on the night before). To give him comfort, make sure he can calm down. If you can not, you can help him by tapping him or singing again Nina bobo to avoid milking at night (which will be a problem for you later when the teething process is over).
- Hematoma gums. Tooth growth may also cause bleeding under the gums that look like a reddish blob. This condition is not to worry about because it can heal immediately with the help of cold compress.
- Pull of ear; rubbing cheeks. Babies whose teeth grow can irritably withdraw their ears or their cheeks or chins. Gums, ears, and cheeks share the same tissue, therefore, the pain of the gums (mainly due to the growth of molar teeth) may spread to other areas. If this happens, you should consult a pediatrician if you feel that your baby is disturbed not only because of the growth of his teeth.
