The appearance of the first tooth in a child is a holiday for parents. This is one of the achievements of the child, which is comparable to the beginning of a crawling, sitting, or the first steps, but for each child they climbs at different ages. I will talk about my son.
While still in the maternity hospital, I noticed white bumps and germs of teeth in my son. I had such a surprise, I had never heard of it. The district pediatrician said that he would have early teeth.
Drool flowed river, hands were constantly in the mouth. We, of course, blamed everything on our teeth and thought: This is what a baby, so little teeth will be. A cross Dani ran a silver spoon, which, according to legend, you need to knock on your teeth so that they are healthy.
There is a spoon, but there is no tooth
All our peers already had teeth, and our early ones still could not climb. I looked into my mouth every day and thought, well, where are they, promised another 2 months.
After six months, the doctors began to ask where they were, but I wanted to ask them that. After seven months, the jokes were already gone, I sometimes jokingly called my son Grandfather toothless. At eight months, I was already angry, because I tuned in to my early teeth, and then there is no later one.
Looking for information, I learned that now the majority of babies have either early teeth, or very late, and for medical reasons, the first tooth should crawl up to one and a half years.
After nine months, I was just waiting, calmly and not paying attention to them. Some acquaintances were surprised, some were joking, the mother-in-law sounded the alarm that it was not normal and you had to cut the gum or use folk remedies to get it.
Long awaited tooth
Two weeks before Danina’s birthday, he had a leap in development. He said the first words, took the first steps and the first tooth finally got out of him. We were dancing a shaman dance over our son, this tooth was so long-awaited. And the next day got out and the second!
Then we were happy and did not know that later teeth would cause big problems. Now this is our weak point. The teeth climb with all signs in behavior, temperature, diarrhea, and the worst thing is that they weaken his immunity and during their growth he suffers a lot, grabbing infections.
