How will I know if my Baby Has Started Teething?

Sometimes, baby teeth will come through with no discomfort or pain at all. However if your baby’s gums are sore and red, it is likely to be the start of teeth coming through.

Also, babies will often have one cheek flushed pinky red, this is sign of swelling from the teeth starting to come through.

If you notice your baby dribbling more than usual, or knawing and chewing on things more frequently, they are most likely teething.
