Oh teething is just cruel. Hunter has been teething for the last 5mnth and only has 1 to show for it. Yet a friends grandaughter had a tooth pop up without any fuss/crying or unsettled behaviour at all. Every little one is different. Some teeth even pop up then go back down for a while too.

Post subject: almost 9 months
Concerned father ...
Liezé is almost 9 months and still no teeth... She never cries, always smiles and is generally a very happy and friendly baby. When she cries something is seriously wrong. She has slept through since 8 weeks. Recently (past couple of days) she is awake at least 3 times at night, cries and refuses to eat all her food. She does not have fever and her nappies are as usual - nothing strange... She chews on everything and is grumpy... Can this be teeth ?

yep when they are tething they chew on everything and are not there usual selves therefore can be grumpy so this mite be her getting her teeth now.
and I guess 'the lenght of a piece of string' is the time frame for this stage to be over...

yeah it kinda is - although if she's gone this long, and is normally a cheery sort, you may find she just gets on with it quickly - if you're really lucky her teeth might come through in a couple of weeks - have you had a feel of her gums? you should feel the gums going hard and whiter, then feel sharp. Make sure she's got teething toys - ones you can refrigerate are really good, and keep bonjela handy just in case she gets really distressed. Good luck

Can i recommend homeopathic teething powders, they were recommended to me as calgel/bongela never worked for my son, he would suck it off his gums and swalow it before it did anything and then the midwife advised me to stop using them as they could numb his throat
The teething powders are called ashton and parsons infant powders and they are fab, they are suitable for newborn plus and you can buy them from boots, but i imagine most chemists sell them xx
