Teething is a natural phenomenon in babies where the baby’s teeth erupt from the gums in the mouth. The amount of pain the baby suffer during teething is unbearable that they often start fussing and show symptoms of fever. Parents are more worried about the baby’s health and sometimes they ignore the signs of teething in babies. In medical terminology, teething is referred to as ‘odontiasis’.


 


When do babies start teething?

 

The teething process starts when the baby enters 6 months. This process is long and goes on till 24 months of age. The symptoms of teething appears a few days before the eruption of the first tooth from the gum. The baby’s first tooth appears at the age of 6 months approximately. This is also the stage when the baby starts taking solid food as a beginner. Not all babies need to have their first tooth by the age of 6 months. It all depends upon the family genetics where some of the babies might be late bloomers when it comes to teething or maybe their first tooth appears before they enter their 6th month.

 

  • Malfunction: There have been a few cases where the teething process has led to malfunctioned tooth in babies. The babies have an already present tooth in their mouth during their time of birth, this condition is called ‘natal teeth’. Almost 2,000 to 3,000 babies have this condition, which is completely normal as the tooth provides no harm to the baby in any form.

 

  • Solution: 
  • Since the malfunction physical anomaly in the form of the natal tooth has proven to be harmless therefore there is no need to take any precautionary actions but just in case give a tour to the baby’s pediatrics. They might provide proper guidance after thoroughly observing the babies genetic history, in case the parents have been through something like this as well. 
  • If not then there is also a solution of removing the natal teeth. It is loosely attached to the gum therefore it won’t be that much painful for the bay during the removal. Most of the parents decide on removing the teeth in case it might affect the new teething process when the baby is at the primal stage of teething. It is preferred to remove the natal teeth as it can also cause aspiration problem in the lungs for the baby. 

 

 

The teething stage is a hectic stage for parents and a painful one for the babies as teething babies are more prone to physical illness, baby’s need more care during this stage. Despite their unnatural body temperature, parents need to stay calm and give whatever remedy the doctor has suggested and if the health condition of the baby does not seem to get better then give a tour to the baby’s physician. Teething babies are delicate and they need more attention and care during this period.

Most of these teething toys are round or oval and babies can't get to the back teeth. This elephant is great because not only does it have different textures but the elephant's trunk is ideal for pushing towards the back teeth! Exactly what we were looking for.

Great baby item, easy for tiny hands to hold and not a item I have to worry about gagging. I like the safety and independence of this teether, better than the banana teether (you have to watch baby to make sure they don't gag). This one is easy for our son to sit and sooth independently with.

I wish this toy had been around when my 5-year-old was teething! The large hole in the center allows my kiddo to easily grab, hold onto, and maneuver the teether. The teether holds temperature rather well too. It is my kid's favorite teether out of the 8-10 I have given him to try.

I bought this because it is not filled with anything and I was hoping it was the soft silicone that bends and holds up well. I am happy to say it was everything I was hoping for. I love the texture and the softness of the material.
