Hi, My son is also displaying similar behaviour. Initially I shunned the idea he was teething but the more I read, I'm thinking it's possible. He's drewling, sucking on hands and vomiting much more than usual, and I'm almost certain I can see teeth behind the gums more clearly than before. I now think that may be what is waking him earlier too. After reading this conversation I think I'll try some natural remedy. Thanks.

yes my boy is 3 and a half months also and teething. he already has 2 teeth about to break through. he is a twin and his sister is showing no signs yet which is interesting. also the best stuff is humphrey's homepathic teethng tablets. i have found them at target and walmart.

My 14 week old has been eating her fists and drooling all over everything for the last week or so. Everyone else has told me it's too early, but I swear she's acting like she's teething. I tried to feel around in there and her upper gum feels really hard. I sure hope it takes awhile for any teeth to come in...my son was like a shark on my breasts and I had to give it up at 8 months. As it is...she likes to bite down her gums on my nips and send me through the roof.

Heya, my little girl has also just turned 3months old and is doing everything everyone has said. I didn't realise this could be teething so from reading everyones comments thank you now i may know the cause of her vomiting more sucking her hands and also drowling more and is even starting 2 get cranky and not want 2 go 2 bed although she does sleep right through the night even if shes slept most of the day =)

Yea they start teething early so I hope you have some Humphreys in the house because My daughter just turned 3 months and she is also doing the same things that you are going threw with your daughter but she is at time a quite baby if I talk to her or sing to her lol
My baby is doing the same thing and when I had her to the doctor he said she most definately could be teething. Lots of love, and tylenol if there is a fever or if she is really uncomfortable. He suggested to NOT use oragel or other teething ointments.

My son is 3 1/2 months when I first realized that he may be teething. He always drooled like all babies, but it was too much drool. I was changing his clothing as many as 3 times in 1 hr. He is constantly biting his hands and has outburst of cries eventhogh he has been changed feed and had a nap. At first I thouth it was colic. but noticed when feeding him he would chew the nipple and then cry. Definitely teething. Sometimes when looking at his gums it almost looks like a tooth about to cut through his gums too.

Sounds like it to me...My son (two and a half) had four front teeth by the time he was four months old...so, it wouldn't be unheard of for a baby that young to be starting the process. It sometimes takes a couple of weeks for the first one or two to break through tho...Try all natural teething tablets, there's a couple of brands and I like them all about the same...They worked amazing with my son! Luckily, our three month old daughter hasn't started it yet...

My boy is 3 months and got his first tooth last week and is working on his 2nd tooth right now. My three children that are older than him all got their first teeth when they were 3 months old!! Is it early yes! But uncommon NO!!

My baby girl is 3 months and I was wondering if she was teething. Now I am sure she is. Not only does she suck on her hands or mine, she drooles all the time. And when she is breast feeding I catch her biting down with her gums on my nips. It has been so long sence my sons were at this stage that I forgot all about it.

dont worry im going through the same thing with my 3 month old son hes always drooling and sucking on his fingers my advice is get some teething rings that you can put in the fridge and let her chew on those while they are still cool that will help numb the pain for her

Hailey will be 3 months on Wednesday. She's also sucking her hands, drooling and the last 2 days cranky!! Didn't think it was her teeth, but after reading all the posts, it is definitely her teeth. Any suggestions on what to use? I've heard that virol powder works?

It is very rare for a child to get a tooth before 4 months but it is not unheard of. However, with that in mind children can start teething months before a tooth comes in. I swore that my oldest was teething at 3 months but he didn't get a tooth until 11 months old! All babies are different and while it is rare there can be a tooth very soon! Good luck!!

My little girl is 3 and 1/2 months old and has her first tooth. We found it last night - not the usual front one either. Oh no! She has decided to get her stomach teeth first! lol. A friend of mine, her little boys is 5 months and has 6 teeth already, he started getting teeth at 2 months.

No way! Every child does things things at different times! My daughter Willow is 3 and a half months and is teething. Her bottom right is already popping through! They can have teething signs for months before a tooth comes through. My daughter's doctor kept telling me she wasn't teething but she is drooling profusely, chewing on her fist and sucking on her arm till she gives herself hickies (pacifiers and teethers she does not like) and extreme crankiness, she never did any of these things before and was always content...and here comes her first tooth! Good Luck!

hi, my son is 14 weeks old and in the last week just started to really suck on his thumbs and fists, he hasnt been drooling, not that i have noticed, but has had slightly red cheeks, and really grizzly. so i thought id have a feel around in his gums, and there was lumps on his top and bottom gums on the front of them. i took him to the dentist and she said to me yes thats his cuspid, but the havent come through there just a hard lump. babies arent supposed to get these till there 17 months or older??

This page really helped me. I have a son that is 3 and half months old and he has recently began drooling a lot and sucking on his poor little fist until it is bright red. He is a lot more cranky then usual, i had no idea that teething could start this early, however i do believe it now. Thank you!

on average, how long after the teeth start moving (or your bub starts showing the natural indicators of teething) do they normally cut through the gums? yes i realise that every baby is different, but just a rough guideline
