Normally, babies will start teething at around six months of age. It can be a significantly uncomfortable time.
Babies who are teething will often start to drool more than usual. Many parents report that they can also run a temperature.
Cold teething rings will often help as well as over the counter oral gels like Bonjela
For babies who won’t settle, sometimes a dose of pain reliever can be used, especially before meal times. Your pharmacist can advise.
If you are worried that your baby may be unwell in addition to teething, please see your GP or Paediatrician
