Raising Healthy Kids | Teething

Teething often begins between months 4-5, but can start as early as three months. Since it can take anywhere from three hours to three weeks to see results, the symptoms can sometimes be misdiagnosed.

What are often simply teething symptoms, are being misdiagnosed as an ear infection; and the American Academy of Pediatrics has recognized that antibiotics are being overly prescribed to children.

Common Teething Symptoms:

-Runny Nose with Clear Mucus

-Irritated Ear

-Mild Fever

-Picky/Fussy Eating

-Disrupted Sleep Patterns

-Irritated Bowel

Commonly Mistaken As:

-Cold or Sinus Infection

-Ear Infection

-Cold or Flu

-Stomach/Digestive Disorder
