Baby teething early or late teething?
Normally, full-term infants usually start to grow teeth from 4 to 10 months after birth, mostly at 6 to 8 months. The earlier the teeth grow, the better the development is. There are great individual differences in the time of teething. It is generally related to heredity, endocrine, food traits, protein and vitamin intake, etc.
If the baby's teeth are not affected by calcium deficiency or other diseases, it is better for the baby to grow teeth earlier than later. If the baby does not have calcium deficiency, or is not affected by factors such as disease, the time of teething will not have any impact on the health of the baby, but if the teething time is earlier, it can be earlier Eat more food, the baby can get more nutrients earlier, which is conducive to the absorption of nutrients, so it is better to grow teeth earlier than later.
Is the baby lacking calcium when teething late?
Not necessarily. Some parents saw that their little baby hadn't had teeth for 9 months, and were very anxious, so they put the charge on the calcium-deficient body, gave the baby calcium, and took it uncontrollably.

Calcium deficiency in babies usually manifests as slow closing of fontanelles, excessive sweating, sparse hair, crying, etc. Late teething is not a typical symptom of calcium deficiency. Whether to supplement the baby with calcium, it is mainly based on the child’s trace element examination and The actual situation will be decided.
What should I do if my baby is late for teething?
If the baby’s deciduous teeth still do not erupt after 10 months, there is no need to be overly nervous, as long as the child is healthy and there are no other problems, it does not matter if the first deciduous tooth comes out when it is one year old late. Just pay attention to feeding and add supplementary foods in a reasonable and timely manner. Bask in the sun, the baby's teeth will naturally grow out. When a child grows deciduous teeth, give him a bite toy or molar stick to stimulate the gums and make the teeth grow smoothly through the mucous membrane. A baby who is over one year old and has not germinated his teeth is considered to be too late for teething.
