teething at 3 months old

I really don't think you all have to worry too much. It is actually one of the developmental milestones - at around 3 months babies have to grasp both hands in front of them and then bring it to their mouth and chew on it.
Yes there are definitely babies that start teething this early, but they all will start with the chewing and drooling at around this age.
My son is now 3 and a half months and has been chewing on any and everything for the past 2-3 weeks....and drooling like crazy!!!
I do rub some teething gel on his gums just incase. Some times it calms him but then other times it does nothing.
Good luck to all!

Hi mums.... I have a 3 and a half month old daughter... i think she is teething too... she has been drooling heaps the last week. I mean crazy drooling and her poos are runny (which i have been told is another sign) and she is putting her fingers on just one side of her mouth and bitting really hard (Just without teeth lol) I have tried to look for teeth coming through, i can see white but im not sure if its on top or in the gum.... she moves to much and she laughs a me lol.... But my mum said there is a dummy the the put gel in or tablets and is comes out slowly as the baby sucks on it... heard they are very good and they last a little longer because its helps over time not all at once...

i pretty sure my 3mo old is as well, when shes really cranky i give her tynenol but when she's just a lil cranky i take her recieving blanket or a cloth and get it wet with luke warm to cold water and massage her gums or let her chew on it or just distract her with it and make her laugh and smile.

crystal. i give my daughter a teether occasionally even though she is not teething yet. sometimes she just likes to suck or gnaw at it just as she would a toy. i would think you would offer it any time you think they may get relief if they are teething. i think giving it to my daughter now will help her when she is teething. the ring type teether is also really good for their grasping development.
The Hyland's teething tablets are great! They are all homeopathic so it's not like giving them medicine. I give my daughter 2 at a time every couple or so hours. They help make her more comfortable so she can sleep or go on about her day :) They are awesome!

i had teeth at 3months so it can happen. we thought our daughter was starting early too so we got a range of products to use like teethers that you put on the fridge and also bonjela which my mum used on me and is quite nice tasting. the washcloth in the fridge is a good one but be weary of giving bubs anything that has been wet and in the freezer escpecially teethers or dummies as freezing effects the plastic and they can split. nuby make gel teethers which are really good. it turned out zahara wasnt teething she just loves putting stuff in her mouth and cant yet control her drooling. good luck.

We use the Hylands teething tablets and love them. Also Tylenol (or Motrin when they're older, but you shouldn't use that for a baby under 6 months.) You can put a wet washcloth in the freezer and let them chew on that, or if she takes a paci, wet that and freeze it. Zach isn't teething yet, but I got him a razberry teether - a nubby pacifier- for when he does, so we'll see how that works. My older son had an angel brush toothbrush that I'd stick in the freezer and he loved chewing on that.
I wasn't a big fan of the orajel. We tried it and he didn't like it, so I tried it, and understood why! It tastes bitter and makes you feel like you've been at the dentist.

its uncommon to start teething that young but not impossible both of my parents were born with teeth.
like was saidd erlier make sure she has somthing to chew on. Diaper rash and fever is also acompanied by teething alot of the time so make sure to keep an eye those things.

My mom told me about teething tablets. They are fabulous. They melt in my little ones mouth and seem to take discomfort out. They are Hyland's Teething Tablets. They are all natural so they won't hurt anything. Lorellai started teething the past coulpl weeks and her back teeth are coming first, and I was told they are the worst!
