From 4 to 8 Months - Teething

Pregnancy and Beyond

Teething often starts around the same time babies begin to outgrow the immunity they received from their mothers during the prenatal period. During this time (5 to 7 months of age) babies become more vulnerable to common childhood infections. Don't assume that fever or other symptoms are a result of teething, because serious infections might be overlooked.

With a little patience and the simple helps described above, you and your baby can make it through teething time.
