Teething
Top Tips & Videos

The times when teeth appear vary from baby to baby but generally most babies get their first tooth on the lower jaw from around 6-10 months of age.

What should I do if my baby is teething?

Most babies get their first teeth around 6 to 10 months. Some babies have no problems while others become irritable and restless. A teething ring or a teething rusk, can be useful for older babies. If teething is causing your baby discomfort, lots of cuddles and a teething gel massaged into the gums with a clean finger may provide relief. Look for one that is sugar free, colour free and alcohol free and always check the dosage instructions and expiry date carefully.
