Ok mom's out there...my daughter is 3 months old....should she be teething already?
Hello, My boy at exactly three months, his first tooth broke thru & in no time the second one came in. So yes to your question. He is 10mths old now & he has 7 teeth. Angelo is his name. I got him Hyland Natural Teething Tablets from WalMart, that soothes his teething. They work wonders for poor fussy babies. Hope this helped!

It all varys!!!! Be grateful she not teething!! My middle child started teething at 6 wks! Yes i know early but true and didn't get her first tooth till she was 9 mths!!! She suffered big time but once they started coming in it eased it off for her. My son now has been teething since he was 9wks old. he 4 mths now and still no sign of teeth. Yet my eldest started at 5mths started to get her teeth at 6mths and flew through it. So don't worry bout it cause it less suffering for them lol!

Hiya. Any age is normal. My sis and I were born with one trying to come up so my mother tells me. And with my son, on his 33wks gestational scan you could see his lower tooth bud, and he was teething when he was 8 weeks. He's one at the end of the month and has eight teeth and teething again like crazy, as his side teeth at the top and bottom are trying to come out.
I'd looking into getting her some teething toys and Bonjela, teething powder or teething liquids to ease the pain.

They can do drooling with hands to the mouth from 2 months and teeth won't appear until at least 6 - 10 months. My son Faelan started like this and at 8 months finally broke two teeth on the bottom, two weeks later broke 4 on top. Since then no more teeth. Alll babies are different.

Just watch wat you think is teething. A lot of first time mums confuse drooling and mouthing objects as teething and its actually not. Its just bubs ways of feeling things and exploring new things. And this is the time too wen mum's often get confused that their baby is ready for solids, wen they arnt.
This is the age wen they start putting more things in their mouths which brings on the saliva and drooling, but doesnt actually mean they are teething or ready for solids.
If she is teething you will see the teeth shape under the gums and she will be tender to touch. They can teeth as early as 3 months. Mine were all over the place, 6 and a half months, 7 and a half months, 8 months and 11 and a half months! So they can happen anytime. Good luck! :)

Yes she can be my daughter started teething at 3 months as well she is now 10months with 8 big teeth but she def can be, but their are some babies that dont teeth young my nephew was 14 months before he even got his first one... if it helps for teething relief i use Hylands teething tablets they are great and dont be worried being tablets they are as small as a pin head and dissolve on they're tongue in seconds and work instantly and the best thing about using them is your not rubbing gel on her swore gums, you can get them from any chemist... hope i have helped you....

Something that really helps sore gums is ice blocks I put them in the mesh "dummies" and my daughter just sucked on them she found they really helped as she got older I gave her tubed ice blocks I haven't had tears from her with her teeth cutting and we have just cut number 8 she is 10.5 months old and has had teeth since 3 months old.

Not necessarily. My 2 eldest cut their first teeth only weeks before their first birthdays. My youngest who is now 9 months still has no teeth. My eldest boy got his first filling at 10 yrs old, only for the tooth to fall out 3 weeks later anyway.
A friend of mine has a 9mth girl who has a mouth full of teeth. There is nothing I've found that my daugher can't eat even with no teeth. they will come in their own time.

every child is different eg my first 2 children got their first teeth through only weeks before their first birthday, my youngest who is 9 months now, still has no teeth. A friend of mine has a 9 month old daughter who has a mouth full of teeth. They'll come in their own time.

teething is hereditary. my sons not even 3 months yet and he started teething @ 7 weeks. my mom told me that was around the same time me and all 3 of my brothers started teething and we all had our first tooth by about 4 1/2 months. 3 months is the average age when most babies start to teeth, but every baby is different so dont worry theres nothing wrong with her.

A lot of babies will show signs of teething, but no teeth actually come thru. Then it might lighten up a bit and come back in another month or two. I have always heard that the longer a baby can go before actually cutting teeth the better, but I think it is only because the longer they have teeth in their mouth, the higher risk of cavities and that.

Our pediatrician said our baby was 'preteething' at about 3 months (lots of droll and chewing) because the teeth where starting to move. My baby is 8 months now and has just cut her 1st 2 teeth. But they can cut teeth at any time.

I think it is perfectly normal. I have a three month old little boy and he started to teeth almost two weeks ago and a friend of mines little boy cute teeth right when he turned 4 months old... Pretty amazing how every baby is different just take care of them.

My twin girls are 3 months old and one of them just started teething(she is drooling everywhere and chomping on anything she can get in her mouth) .. I read online that they can begin to teeth at 3 months so I don't think it is abnormal. There have even been some extreme cases where a baby has been born with teeth. Get some nice soft teething rings and put some of them in the fridge(that way you have a few cold ones for when in pain) and stock up the baby tylenol and orajel. Good luck.

every baby is different...they can get teeth at any time...i know a couple of people where their baby's were BORN with teeth?????weird...where as unlike my two....my first didn't get teeth till 10months...& my second is 6mnths & still doesn't have any....
I she is teething i suggest you buy an amber necklace for her...its crystals release a natural oil into the skin which helps with inflammation & soreness...also helps with dribbling...

It is normal, my nephew started teething at 3 months finally broke in his tooth at 5 months. It just really depends on the baby not all babies are the same and not all develope at the same time, I wouldn't really worry about it, it's perfectly natural.

I read somewhere that it's normal for the first tooth to appear any time from birth to 12 months (but it can be even later). There's a huge variance between babies when it comes to teeth.
My baby got her bottom two teeth at 4.5 months and the top two have just appeared at 6.5 months. By the way, they seem to have more pain before the teeth appear. Now that the teeth have cut through the gum, my baby's behaviour (feeding, sleeping, etc) is back to normal.

my baby is 2.5 months and is starting to chew, i thought it was too early. I was told it doesnt mean that they will break any teeth just yet, it could still be awhile, its like pre-teething and its a natural reaction for babies to want to chew just like it is to suck.
