    Question What age do babies start teething?

    DD has been relly grumpy for a few days now. Sleeping like a log at night, sleeping REALLY restlessly during the day and when she is awake shes pretty grumpy. My first thought was a growth spurt but shes not eating any more (actually shes been eatting a little less) or any more frequently then usual, shes running a little tempreture but doesnt seem to be sick/run down (big bright eyes, very active, just very very winey) my mum was here the other day watching DD CHOMP down on her hand repeatedly and said she could be teething surely not yet??? What age do children usually start teething? Any way to tell? (other the emerging bumbs on the gums )

    It's really hard to know. I had my first tooth at just a few months old and I was SURE my boy was teething from almost birth as he was sooooo dribbly and constantly chewing things but his didn't come until 6 months.

    I think you've just really got to wait. She could be having a spurt but just not needing as much food, could have a very slight bug, could be just changing sleeping habits, could be at the start of teething.. who knows?! Babies are strange little creatures

    When my DS was teething he, thanfully, wasn't grumpy. I just saw a little tooth in his gums!

    The average age for when teeth start cutting through is 6 months, but that is just an average. Some babies are born with teeth, some start cutting them at a few weeks old, some a few months old, and some not until a year old.
    DD1 cut her first two teeth a day before 7 months. DD2 is 7 weeks and has had a tooth since 4 weeks old.

    In my experance teething is a really individual thing by that I mean every kid is differant for example my DD1 had both her bottem teeth by 6 months and dd2 has only just got her first tooth at age 10 months.. The thing I have have noticed with my girls is the teeth moved around and bothered them for quite some time befor I could see the theeth.The grumpyness, heavy sleeping, and slight temp are all teething sings so maybe there starting to move around and bother her. I found with both my girls when they were going through this stage that they loved to chew on things so i use to freze all there gell theething toys to help releave there discomfort.
    Good luck everything

    I was told that teething is heriditery. Not sure from which side of the family though.

    My DD got her first tooth at 4 months and that is when her dad got his.

    Good luck.

    My DS showed the signs from 3 months, and he cut his first two teeth (bottom middle) at exactly 4 months.

    DS showed signs of teething at 3 months and cut his first at 8 months. He didnt get his next teeth until 14 months . He was a horror teether, waking up every 30 minutes screaming and we tried all the natural relief but in the end we took him to the doctor and got some medication that absolutely saved us!
