My daughter was 3 months old on Sat. and I'm pretty sure she is started to teeth. She has been drooling non-stop and won't keep her hands out of her mouth either! My first daughter didn't get a tooth until 7 months old.. so this is all new too me again! As of right now I don't see any teeth. but one side of her gums is swollen, but it's more like the 'eye' tooth. and idk what is up with that. My oldest daughter will be 2 in July and just now cut the eye teeth. so.. I'm not sure! Kora doesn't like the teethers either, and I dont use any kind of gel or anything yet.. cus she isn't all that fussy, but when she gets fussy I give her Gripe Water.. it works miracles.. let me tell you! for Colick, gas, teething, upset stomach.. everything.. it's a life saver!! you should try that. You can get it at a health food store.. idk where all you can get it but in Russellville that is the only place I have found that has it and it's like 10$ for 4 oz. Good luck!!

My 3 month old son has started to get really sooky and bites on your fingers and chews on his dummy... He has been drawling for weeks on end...he has been getting rosy cheeks too and got told by the nurse that he may be pre-teething.
I have put a teether toy in the freezer for him to try today..but have read soaking commomile tea with a wash cloth and freeze...Also have read that Braurer's Teething Relief is good that is easy to get from the pharmacy......
i hope my son can get through this...:D

My little one just started a couple days ago at 3 1/2 months. Very slight fever, constant drooling, hands in mouth, 2 bottom teeth starting to show through gums, and not sleeping well at night. (He's been sleeping through night for last 6 weeks!) :-( Poor thing!!!

It is so horrible when they teethe this young. My little boy is 3mths and he is only cutting a molar at the back, I thought I must be seeing things as they are not supposed to cut these until they are 1yrs old but having googled it I see that other people have dealt with this too. I guess it gets the worst ones out of the way but I so feel for him. Ashton and Parsons powder is ok but seems to be having less effect now so Nurofen and Calpol is the only thing working.

My son is almost 4 months old and the last couple of weeks has been chewing on everything. Mostly his hands and blankies. All babies are different though. Some get fussy and fevers and others it doesnt seem to bother them. They could start teething and then not cut teeth for weeks maybe even months. Teething toys work great and baby orajel has the q-tip swaps that you just snap the top off and it puts the orajel into the q-tip making it easier and less messy to rub on their gums. that worked great for my 2 year old. Good Luck!

My baby started teething when he was 2 months and 3 wks. Everybody was like he cant do that. LOL babies can be born with teeth which would freak me out ( I breastfeed for a little bit until my little monster got his daddy's appetite and wouldnt stop eating).

I'm so glad you posted this, because I thought I was going crazy! My daughter cannot keep her hands out of her mouth and the drool is unbelievable! Everyone is telling me it's too early, but I swear her upper front gums feel really hard to me. With my son, I used those teething tablets and dissolved them in water to rub them on the gums...it always seemed to calm him down. I think I used Hyland's even though the belladonna made me nervous. Thankfully he was fine and it really did seem to take the edge off.
My baby is 13 weeks and he has his whole fist in his mouth and drooling heaps. He has the red cheeks but no crying!.. for now that is!. I tried feeling if there were any teeth coming through and i couldn't feel anything.. so i'm not sure if he is teething or he is just discovering his hands.

My daughter started seriously drooling around 2 1/2 months. She puts her entire fist in her mouth, hten cries because hard items hurt her gums. Now at almost 4 months she is cutting 2 teeth at the same time! I find soft items help her more. I give her a cold cloth or a corner of her burp cloth to chew on.

My little boy just turned 3 months. we were wondering if he was starting to teeth or not. He was sleeping 12 hrs through the night, he is drooling lots and his hands are in his mouth constantly. he also sucks on my shoulder alot when he is drooling. i'm not seeing anything in his mouth that would indicated teeth coming through. i am not sure if his teeth are just starting to move.

my little girl will be 3 months on the 25th of May and she has been teething for the past week. some nights she is really fussy and cries alot. the other night i gave her tylenol and rubbed a little orajel on her gums and she was asleep in no time and slept well all night.

My son is 15 weeks old and has been teething for about 3 weeks. At first he was in a lot of pain, but it has eased up a little. Still chomping away on his fist and drooling up an olympic sized pool. His favorite thing to chew on is my shoulder, but he'll chew on my fingers.
Doctor doesn't believe he'll cut any teeth for a few more months. I was told to expect good days and bad days. Right now we are in the good less pain days.
Also the teething pacifiers have been a God Send! When he is inconsolable, we give him one and he calms right down!

My baby boy is 12 weeks old and had been dribbling and chewing his fist for the last 2 weeks, he seems to be teething, I find massaging his gums with my finger helps. as does panadol. My daughter got her lower 2 front teeth at 4 months.
Yeah, my son is 3 months and he started to drool and gnaw on his hands a few weeks ago, and it appears there are teeth on their way. He's very grumpy and is having trouble sleeping, which results in late-night crying because he's too tired. :( I intend to buy liquid painkiller because it can sometimes work as a local anaesthetic.

Piper also does not like teething rings at all! And she tries to bite down on anything that gets close! Might try one of those teething pacifiers since we haven't taken the paci away yet, might help her get through more comfortably!
Jenny - posted on 05/20/2010
yes! Piper will be 15 wks tomorrow, and she started showing signs about 3 weeks ago! It hasn't been that but, but the past few days, she has been miserable! I started using orajel 2 days ago, and a cold washcloth. She still sleeps well during the night and eats fine though, but drools everywhere!

Zyan started teething at 2 months....and he is in love with his hands right now. I cant keep them out of his mouth. Many times, its the only thing that keeps him from screaming! Teething rings are NOT working. But he still sleeps through the night! :)

just wanted to let everyone know that infant tylenol was recalled.
every time i try to give my daughter gripe water she chokes on it really bad. it smells kinda mentholly to me so i think it makes her feel like she cant breath.

My little mans first tooth started to poke through at 2 1/2 months right after my pediatrician said he couldn't be teething yet. Since then he's been battling with two teeth that keep poking up and then going back under the gum. Completely ruined his sleep habits, eating habits and his disposition. And now he seems to be starting his next growth spurt early. So yeah I can sympathize with you. :0) remember it's all temporary.
