The period of the eruption of the first baby teeth at your son or daughter may be difficult, both for the child and for you - parents. It is very useful to imagine what is involved in this process in order to anticipate and prevent potential problems. Pedodontists in Nebraska mention main symptoms of eruption:
Redness of the gums: This is the most visible sign of teething. It is a painful process, so the baby cries often. If you notice that your child often cries for no apparent reason, you can consider it a sign of the beginning of teething.
Attempts to bite and chew: Before teething children constantly feel the need to bite or chew anything. They usually put their fingers and other things and are constantly trying to bite through solid objects.
