Some Teething Facts..• teething is relatively painless for many children..
• the first tooth can come in anytime between 3 to 15 months, with an average age of 4 to 7 months for most infants.
• if teething does cause symptoms, it is usually about 4 days before and until 3 days after the tooth comes in..
