Q.

Teething problems

Hi There,

My 15 month old toddler is struggeling for the past three weeks now to get her two bottom canines (I think!), left and right out. She has huge bumps in her gums and although she struggled for a while (she didn''t sleep very well and don''t get me started on the nappies!), she appears to be fine for the moment.

It just concerns me that it is taking so long for those teeth to appear. Her gums seems swollen and there is no indication that the teeth will appear soon.

Is this normal?

Thanks!
