My very first baby sprouted his very first tooth on Easter. My second baby’s first tooth popped through on Labor Day. Both babies were around seven months old. I expect my third baby to continue this trend, so come Valentine’s Day, when he has just turned seven months, I will be thoroughly prepared with all the necessary teething tools.
I always joke that I will be blaming my kids' bad attitudes on teething until they are 7. It's my “excuse” every time one of my babies is crying or fussy. “Oh, they are probably teething." “Oh, they have a tooth coming in, you can see/feel it right there!” HA! Did you know that kids get two year molars?! YUP! That means you are not done with a teething child until TWO YEARS OLD! Every baby is different, but here are some tricks we use at our house to help ease this painful time.
