A baby teeth chart may not be the only survival tool you will need. But knowing the approximate age for each tooth will help you tell the difference between a random fever and a teething fever.
Recognizing the cause of your baby's fussiness will help you address it.
After their first little tooth comes in you can adjust the chart's date range accordingly. If your baby gets a tooth at 4 months the others will most likely be early too.
This chart shows lower central incisors erupting at age 6-10 months. Your baby may get his or her first teeth earlier, later or in a slightly different order than the chart shows.
Most children will have all their baby teeth by age 2 1/2 to 3.
Just as important as following the chart are signs of a new tooth trying to break it's way through your baby's gums.
Babies can have any or none of these symptoms, Since teething occurs off and on for a long stretch of you baby's life, symptoms can overlap and be confused with colds, ear infections, or stomach viruses.
Since babies can't tell us what hurts, instincts and watching for a combination of tell tale signs while being aware of teeth that are due to erupt helps.
