Baby Teether

I am a 176 days / 5 months 3 weeks 5 days old baby

I forget to tell you, the baby blogger community, that since about two months ago mom bought me a couple of baby teethers (Indonesian, alat perangsang pertumbuhan gigi).

The purpose of baby teether is give a baby like me something to bite on, and soothes the aches of new teeth growing in.

Actually, dad and mom wanted to see me teething faster. But as some expert say a baby will start teething:

"Most babies get their first tooth at around 6 months, but your child's chompers may appear as early as 3 months or as late as 14, depending on such factors as when Mom and Dad started sprouting teeth and whether or not your baby was a preemie (preemies tend to teethe on the late side)."[1]

Understandable, that's why my first tooth has yet to come because it's still 2 days to go for me to reach six month milestone.

By the way, how long the teething process will complete, it seems a long painful process:

"The teething process lasts about two years, but after the first few teeth come in, the process tends to be much less painful."[2]
