My son Kaiden has been teething since about a week after he was born! I found the best thing with my first son, Teething Tablets... They are AWESOME! He's a different kid once he gets those! Not too expensive and they are homeopathic so no need to worry about drug stuff! and they just melt in their mouth so they won't choke on them.

Yes!!! My bubba was born on 14th June, started teething at 9 weeks, and popped out a BACK TOOTH at 12 weeks!!!!! My big boy get a tooth until 7 months (and it was a bog standard middle one).
I give mine homeopathic Chamomilla (it is also sold as Ashtons and Parsons), I also got my little one an Amber necklace, He also likes chewing cold wet flannels, big metal spoons, and leather.

My little guy just got his two bottom teeth and it has been a rough process! He went from sleeping through the night to waking up every 30-40minutes. Plus when I am nursing him he bites sometimes and I know its because his teeth are bothering him but OUCH for me!

my little girl is also theething. She's born on June 4th. I know that is soon, but her sister was also 4 months old wen she already had 2 bottom theeth. My mother told me that i was only 3,5 months old when i had my first theeth, so my babygirls have this in common with me.

yes, my daughter (born june 7) has been teething since she was 3 months old - we've been calling her drooly! the orajel was helping for a while but not the last couple days so i hope teeth are coming soon! her lower canines are big white bumps but not cutting through yet. i've been giving her tylenol to help her sleep but will definitely try those teething tablets and a cold, wet washcloth to chew on.

Yes, my son was born on June 24 and is also teething. We just saw the pediatrician yesterday and he said orajel every 2 hours and tylenol at night to help him sleep. I have also found that soaking a burp cloth or baby wash cloth in very cold water and then letting him suck on it helps a lot! Good luck!

My son was born on June 18, and has been teething since he was 2 1/2 months. Poor guy, He has 4 bumps in his mouth and they're his eye teeth. I think that he is just going to get them all at once. Then is changed his sleep patterns. He was waking up every hour on the hour. It's crazy

My Arianna was born on the 1st and will chew on ANYTHING she can get into her mouth. she chews her hands til they are red. i can feel her top two teeth bumps on her gums but they haven't cut yet. and she has been really good about not biting my nipple when she eats which i am so totally grateful for. a really good thing that i have found is otter pops. wrap them in scotch tape (for the sharp edges) and wash and my daughter will go to town chewiing on them sideways. also the mesh bag things with the plastic handle. i put ice in it and give it to them.

How do you know when your baby is teething? My baby girl was born on the 9th. She is biting anyting she can get in her mouth including biting her fingers till they go red. She also has ALLOT of spit and is cranky at times. My son (now 7.5 years) only got his first tooth at 11 months.

I have to agree with Mandy, Teething Tablets are the best things ever. My little girl was born on June 9th and she just got her 1st bottom tooth this past Tuesday and she will have her second one in less than a week. Those tablets are the only thing that has kept me sane. After 15 minutes she is like a new baby!

Yes Miss Caitlyn has two teeth now, they appeared when she was just on 3 months. Caitlyn was born 25th. I wasnt expecting teeth so soon, so poor miss had nothing to ease the pain of emerging tooth 1, plus when no 2 came.. it was hard to give her a teething ring because she was too small to hold onto it. I gave her a dummy at the time to chew on..... breastfeeding was dangerous too! but alls good now.

William was born on 9th June and he was 4 weeks early, so when he started to get red cheeks at three and a half months I thought I was imagining things. I don't remember my first boy starting this early. I had a look today and I can see a couple of top teeth coming through. He has not been too grumpy with it so far, so fingers crossed that it stays that way. His gums are certainly feeling a bit firmer when he is feeding. I have had to tell him off for "biting" a few times. I have just bought his first toothbrush, so we will have to start using it.
