The question ‘when do babies start teething?’ is most searched for by bleary-eyed, exhausted new parents at 4am in the morning. No doubt after they’ve been wrenched from sleep for the umpteenth time by a crying baby who just can’t settle.
‘When do babies crawl’ is most searched for at 3am, along with ‘when do babies roll over’…perhaps by mums trying to soothe wide-awake tots back to sleep – and hoping they’ll soon be tiring themselves out crawling round the house!
