When does teething begin?
Babies can get their first tooth anywhere between 3–15 months, but commonly between 4–9 months – although discomfort may start earlier. Dribbling at 3–4 months is usually as a result of your baby learning to put things in their mouth, which is part of normal development.
Give your baby a teething ring – either a soft rubber one, or the plastic type that are cooled in the refrigerator.
