The tooth fairy 

As mom’s we look for the tell tale signs of teething….

Fevers

Niggles

Tummy upsets 

And eagerly await the eruption of those tiny white teeth.

The first set of teeth known as milk teeth usually start making an appearance from about 6 months.

They should appear in the following order :

Central lower incisors 

Central upper incisors 

Outer lower incisors 

First premolars

Canines

And the first molars which appear between 24 and 36 months.

On average at a year a baby has 6 teeth with another 6 following by age 2.

If baby has shown no sign of teething by 14 months it’s advised to take them to a doctor.
