my daughter has been drowling alot and chewing her hands and wants to suck anything, but the last 2 days she wont sleep and screams like shes in pain and nothing soothes her, not even her fav song, weve tried everything, is this the start of something?

My daughter does the same thing licking her blankets, she's drooling lots, she likes to suck on my shoulder and soaks my shirt....I feel like she's teething! I never saw a baby lick a blanket until her lol I wonder what it's all about?

it is possible that oyur son could be teething...my son was 1 and a half months when he started teething..he hasnt had any teeth showing yet but they will take some time...also if he is cranky i would try baby orajel or even teething tablets..they work great!! good luck

My 10 week ls son is showing all the signs of teething also. After talking to the midwife she said yes he certainly could be but it's more like it's his teeth coming through the lower gum as this can cause a little bit of pain as well.

Hylands teething tablets from Walmart are fantastic for natural teething pain. Also Colic Calm from coliccalm.com is fantastic!! 2 months seems a little early but sometimes they start to come up and then go back down...good luck!!

just yesterday my little girl realized she had feet. It was so cute to watch her stare in wonder as she wiggled her toes. She can't reach them to her head not that i've seen anyway. I think this is all just the beginning of the teething stuff. It may still take a few months for the teeth to break thru and all that but I think this is all just the very beginning.

My daughter just turned 3 months and has been doing the exact same as everyone on here has mentioned since two months and still no teeth.... Is it really teething or is it just normal for them. Maybe they are just figuring out how to use their mouth and maybe its curiousity with the hands. Wanting to touch everything and feel their mouth??? I don't know ....I thought all babies do all the above at 2 months such as blowing bubbles and putting hands in mouth i think the feet are next hahahaha....Let me know what you think. Cause maybe I need to try using oragel too.

This is excellent I'm so glad I'm not insane. my baby girl is 12 weeks and is miserable and there's no exlplanation for it. Up til now she was the sweetest most darling baby . She drools thru everything she has and chews on anyhting put in her mouth. Also....it's kinda funny but she's always got her tongue out rubbing it out across her lower gums. just in and out all day long.She all the sudden hates her pacifier, chews her bottle nipples, her hands, her shirt, absolutely anything. I dont see any teeth but you can feel the ridges under her gums...i just assumed it's supposed to be like that. So what do you think? Could she be starting the teething process already?

My 2 month old is teething too. Was really bad for about a week and has now slacked off to almost not at all. I just got some baby orajel and when just rubbing them wouldnt work at all, put a little on his gums. Giving him something cold seemed to help too. I put a soft teething ring in fridge and would just hold it for him.

Jayde is nearly 11 weeks and has in the last 2 weeks started drooling and blowing bubbles... Baby newsletter said most babies start this around this age in preperation for teeth but usually they still wont come through until bubs is about 4-6 months.

most babies start teething somewhere between 4 and 6 months. baby drools alot when she gets excited.and when she coos. if your baby wants to chew on stuff, let him chew. pacifiers are good for teething babies. you could also try giving him a frozen bag of peas or corn..or a even a pickle to suck on. the vinager in pickle juice soothes their gums. thats what my mom gave us kids and that's what my sister gave hers..so i'm sure it'll help

My 2 month old is also drooling and shoving his hand in his mouth. My other son started doing this early also but didnt have his first tooth till around 6 months.

I know the feeling here. my 11 week old has been showing signs of teething for a couple weeks now. Drooling a lot, chewing on the nipple of the bottle and his hands and shoving anything he can get his hands on in his mouth. teething rings in the fridge are what I have worked with in the past. Seems to help a little.

[deleted account]

I think my son has the same thing. Last night I dreamt that he was getting teeth, now Ive just come across this article. He is also drooling alot and chewing on his hand and dummy - even though he has just fed.

My sister in-law gave me some homeopathic teething tablets from HYLAND'S. 100% Natural. She swears by them, so when the time comes I'll be popping these little ones in his mouth. (he's not yet showing signs of extreme discomfort)

You are not alone my son is teething too and he is only two months old.It's normal because every child is different and my doctor said if he is drooling then he is teething.

Yess it is possible for him to be teething already.. mine is 2 months old and he is teething and drooling and making spitty bubbles lol.. if he cries i put a cloth in the freezer and let him chew on it to ease if there is pain.. if not i just have those teething toys for him and he loves it..

My son is almost 10 weeks old and the doctor said he is most likely at the beginning stages of teething but he said that its normal some kids just get it early...definately get the teething rings and put them in the frig not the freezer it helps alot to calm him down

I was wonderin the same thing about my 10 week old son!! He seems extra fussy and is chewing (not suckin) on his thumb!! and he is starting to slobber. I only see the littlest speck of white on his bottom gums but I think I can feel the outline of a tooth on the top under the gums!! I'm gonna freeze his teething rings today, thinking about gettin some teethin tablets. My mom told me that my brother got his first tooth at 4 months but drooled for two months before that!! Said it was so bad he had to wear a bib everywhere
