Teething with bruises on the gums?? How long until the teeth came through, its been a week???

My son is 8 months old and this is the second time he is teething. When he got his bottom two teeth he was fine but now he is getting his top two teeth and they are bruised, swollen and dont seem to be making any progress. Of all my kids this has never happened. Should I be worried and consult his doctor or just wait a little while longer? He is extremely irratable, but sleeping fine, and he is barely nursing.

  • Just give it time, they have to break through the skin on their own. My 22 month old still have teeth that haven't broken the skin and its been a while.
