BABY TEETH ARRIVING !
Most babies will develop teeth between 6 and 12 months of age. Around 3 months of age, babies will begin exploring the world of their mouth and have increased saliva and start to put their hands in their mouth.
The first tooth usually appears around 6 months old. Typically the first teeth to come in are almost always the lower front teeth the lower central incisors) and most children will usually have all their teeth by age 3.
Keep your child comfortable whilst teething with baby Panadol, teething rings and gum massage and/or gum teething gel.
Saliva increases during teething, which causes dribbling and sometimes rash on the chin, so try and keep babies chin dry if possible.
