Babies first teeth generally appear about six months after birth, however for some babies it may take up to 12 to 14 months. The 4 front teeth are the first to erupt through the gums and most babies have their full set of 20 baby teeth by the age of 3. As the baby teeth erupt, some babies may become cranky, fussy, sleepless and lose their appetite or drool more then usual. This is what is known as teething. Diarrhea, rashes and fever are not normal symptoms for babies while teething, if these symptoms occur be sure to contact your doctor.
