How long does fussiness associated with teething last?

1 doctor answer
Dr. Albert E. Klitzke
8 years experience in Dentistry
When tooth erupts: As teeth erupt babies can be fussy, sleepless and irritable, lose their appetite or drool more than usual. Try rubbing their gums with a clean finger, a small cool spoon or a moist guaze pad. A clean teething ring or pacifier will help.
