You are absolutely right.
The bump and swollen gums are result of teething.
your baby is getting the first milk teeth erupted in his oral cavity.
No need to be panic.
Clean the gumpads using moist cotton.
Your child also may experience loose stools,fever,nausea etc.
This is a physiological part of teething.
Take care.
