Babies and Teething
Teething can be a long process, it may take your baby as long as three years to get a full mouth of teeth.
Your babyís first tooth usually starts to come in as early as 3 months old.
The process can be quite painful for your baby. To relieve the pain gently massage the gums with your finger, or give your baby something cold to chew on.
After your baby has a set of teeth, itís important to keep them clean. Giving them a a wipe with a gauze once a day will do.
Around 18 months is a good time to start introducing a tooth brush. Unless your baby is having a lot of sugar in its diet, you won't really need toothpaste yet.
When your baby turns 3, itís time to make your babyís first dentist appointment.
