  • Also, the gums on the bottom will probably look red and swollen.

  • What they said, lol. My DD got her bottom two at that age, and then exploded with 4 more within a month!! Needless to say, she was swollen and VERY cranky, and had a low grade fever.

  • i've graduated with my bachelor's degree in early childhood development. when a child begins to teeth, they will cry and cry for no reason. they DROOL like crazy, and chew/suck on everything that they can get their hands on. they may run a bit of a fever, and get really moody.
