3. Mood Changes
If your baby has been fussier or more irritable lately — and no obvious cause has been found — teething could be to blame. Trouble sleeping is another less obvious sign of a baby with teeth coming in, as is rejecting food. Check with your pediatrician or dentist if you are unsure why your little one is acting differently.
4. Biting, Sucking, and Chewing
A baby is biting everything in sight is a very typical sign of teething. Constant sucking and chewing are two more dead giveaways, at least in most situations. An appropriate chewing toy or teething ring will help your baby feel better and save random objects from being destroyed. If all else fails, opt for a wet rag refrigerated inside a plastic bag as a makeshift teething ring.
If your little son or daughter is drooling more excessively than normal, then teething has most likely begun. A child who has a consistent rash on his or her face or chin may also be steadily drooling from erupting teeth. Check with your pediatrician to rule out any other causes of rash or drool.
