How do I tell if my baby is teething?

My baby is just shy of a year old. My husband and I moved about a month and a half ago, and prior to moving, our baby slept through the night really well. Ever since we moved, he hasn't slept through the night except maybe twice. I assumed it was because of a new house, new noise, temperature etc., but wouldn't he be used to it by now? Could it be a sign of teething?

    Might be, could also simply be a growth spurt or sleep regression, or combination of these. You can certainly try some remedies for teething like offering a chilled damp washcloth to chew on or make breast milk pops. I’ve heard people tout amber necklaces but not certain about that myself!

    At first it may have been the sounds and new surroundings, but now I would say it is his new habit, you may need to ignore him for a couple of nights to get him over getting up in the middle of the night again. If you rule out the teething thing.

    We are getting ready to move with a one year old to. Hope we have better luck.

    Agreed with Lisa. Maybe with the new house he formed a new habit of waking up. Try and leave him to fall back asleep on his own if you can. Teething usuallyyyyyy has other symptoms as well!

    Good to know. That is most likely what the issue is. Luckily he is starting to get a little bit better at getting back to sleep. Hopefully I can him back into a good habit of sleeping through the night.
