wow i've been thinking same thing for last 2 wks, all actions can be signs of teething (thou every child is different) and my boy luka who is now 3months old is doing the same - i asked baby nurse years ago with my daughter of 2 and she said babies can start drooling early as this is when babies get something like water gland (forgot the proper term sorry) that produces saliva which is why they start drooling and hands in mouth - is also another milestone of what babies do (all part of development)............
i say, baby should wear a bib and give a teething ring or something for relief. ..

My son had his first tooth the week before he turned 3 months. My daughter is also teething. Teething takes a LONG time. The tooth works it's way up and then slips down and then back up and down and this happens until the tooth finally cuts through. It's why babies are so fussy.

Could be. My oldest ( b/g twins now two) started teething at 3 months of age. My daughter broke her first tooth at ten months and my son at eleven months. My youngest is almost three and a half months, and is starting to teeth as well.

My baby started drooling alot in his 1st month and hes pinched me with his gums too while eating, and he always wants his paci in his mouth or hel go for my hand lol. All I know is his teeth better stay in til 6 months cause I dont wanna nurse a baby with teeth for over 6 months, I plan on nursing my son for up to a year. Even when he has teeth. Hel be 3 months in a week.

Yes they can. My first child had two teeth before he was six months old and my second child has a tooth beginning to pop through. He's had teething fever and wants to chew on everything and has been drooling since he was three weeks old. With my first he had no symptoms whatsoever he just opened his mouth one day and all of a sudden had two teeth in there.

My son drooled a lot especially chewing on a bib and whenever he fussed someone would ask if he was cutting teeth. It got really irritating because he didn't get his first tooth until ten months! Your baby could be getting teeth but she might also just be drooling a lot. My son is 28 months now and still drools a lot!
