I'm wondering if Xander is going thru this right now.
He's normally so very happy and never cries or whinges but today he's been so whingey and only happy when he's being cuddled by me, his dad's cuddles aren't even working on him. He's been drooling heaps sinces about 10wks (15wks now) but the past week it's like he has a tap on in his mouth, it's almost pouring out hehehehehehe. He doesn't want to sleep at all today, usually he's a fab sleeper, and one of his cheeks is getting rosey today. He's been sticking his hands in his mouth for a few weeks, but these past few days anything he can grab hold of goes in there.
ooohhh....Jac, nappy rash you say. Well Xander has never had nappy rash until about 4 days ago which I found kinda odd as nothing has changed in that area.
I will be keeping a close eye on his little gums I think.

My daughter has two bottom front teeth making an appearance. She is 15 weeks and they popped up last week. I think this is very early but ive heard they could go back down! So we might have to endure this crankyness and sleep deprivation again!!

Sam has had red cheeks and been drooling and gumming for two weeks. He's also waking twice a night after having slept through for two weeks previously. he's 4 months, i assume its the teeth coming but none to see or feel just yet.

Nisha, I wish I could tell you that the pain only lasts for the first tooth but then I would be lying to you. Usually they say that the first 4 are the worst and then after that they get easier. For me I think it's the first 8 that are the worst ones. With my oldest 2 after those 8 came in you didn't even know that they were cutting teeth they just came in! A lot of babies will have signs of teething for months before they even cut their first tooth. But all babies are different so you can't really tell someone to expect it!

My daughter was born on Oct 25, 2009, my husband and I thought when she has fussy it was because she was constipated. I had no idea she was cutting teeth. We noticed the first tooth the week she turned 3 months and then i remember all the signs the drooling, sucking on her hands. Now I will be more prepared for the next tooth.

Hey there Sarah, my son was born on the 16th, and he has too been teething for a few weeks....his one tooth is almost through on the bottom....one of my cousins was born with a tooth, consider EVERYTHING normal, because every child is different :)
Chloe is 4 months and has been drooling like crazy and gumming anything she can fit in her mouth for over a month now... Only this week is she starting to get cranky and is sleeping alot again... maybe we'll see a tooth soon! I hope so, i hate to see her in pain.

My baby Jada has been drooling ever since she came out the womb. She's 3 months now and has gotten worse with sucking on her hand and her fingers and trying to suck on other stuff like pillows or anything she can get her hands on. I think she's teething but no one wants to believe me

I'm hoping the same thing for Kaleigh, Leslie!! It is horrible to see them in so much pain. I have been giving her the teething tablets too, they work like a charm. Orajel doesn't do any good because they just drool it out!! Ahhhh...the joys of a teething baby!

Oh yes!!! Kaleigh has been teething for about 3-4 weeks now....she hasn't cut any teeth yet. But she sure does have the drool factor down!!! I have been shocked because neither of my boys started teething until they were 6 months old, and then didn't cut their first teeth until 10-11 months!!! It's a whole new world with a little girl!!!

My daughter is exhibiting signs of teething since she was 2.5 months old...for the last two weeks, she had been drooling a lot, chewing her fingers constantly and become fussy when it comes to feeding..she is 3.5 weeks now and I am looking forward to seeing her first tooth...However I wonder will she have to go through the same amount of discomfort each time she cuts a new tooth or is the pain just for the first tooth...can anyone enlighten my understanding on this.

My daughter was born October 3rd 2009. She has been drooling alot, biting her bottle nipple and hands, really fussy when she eats. I've been told she is probably cutting teeth. She has been doing these things for a few weeks now.

Dante has been teething for a couple of weeks now. I can see his 2 bottom front teeth thru the gums but they haven't risen up or cut thru yet. The pain comes and goes and when gets really bad I give him an over the counter gel to rub into his gums. I don't know if it's available in the States or outside Germany. It's called Dentinox. It is mostly chamomile and a tiny bit of Lidocaine.
Emma is 4 months old day and her first bottom tooth came up last week. She's working on getting the second one up. Emma is usually fussy, doesn't eat much and sleeps a lot more a for about a week before the tooth actually comes up. Her cheeks also go red for two days before they come up. I use frozen face cloths for her to chew on and give her tylenol if she's really fussy. My other 3 children had their first teeth around 4 months and all 8 front teeth by the time they were 6 months.

My daughter Amaya has been teething for over a month...her cheeks have been extremely red this week. She chews on her hands constantly and while I haven't seen a tooth break through yet, I can see the white bumps on her gums. She has been really cranky this week, so I'm hoping they break through soon for her sake. =)

My little boy has been sucking on his fists for the last 2 weeks and now his cheeks are bright red. I can see his bottom gum is turning white as the tooth is pushing. I didn't expect anything until he was about 4 months at least. He is 15 weeks old. I have noticed a lot more wet nappies recently too.

My family starts teething around 10 weeks. My daughter has been true to that. She has been at this teething thing for about 7 weeks now and hasn't cut a tooth. I looked it up and it is normal for babies to cut teeting anywhere from 3 months to a year. More than likely it will be in the middle but it definitely can happen starting at 3 months. I get Hyland's Teething Tablets... it helps her. They are natural homepathic so I feel good about it... and they are said to be the best. I also freeze a carrot and let her gnaw on that. I've tried a few things that help actually.

I'm not sure if Brody is teething. This is my first baby but my pediatrician told me he could start anywhere from 4-6 months. Brody has been drooling and sucking away on this hands like crazy and very cranky lately. So I'm not sure what's really going on??
