My son cut his first 2 teeth at 4 months. He was drooling, whingy and sucking about 5 weeks before they cut.
Wet the corner of a face washer, they love chewing and sucking on it.

My son is 12 weeks and has been drooling and chewing on his hands for the past couple of weeks. A few people asked me if he was teething but I though it was too early so I just blew it off...but the more people asked the more I wondered. Then when asking my mom, she told me that I had 4 teeth at 4 months...I suppose he is teething!

This featured conversation come through my email just in time when I need to know whether my son is teething. He's 11 wks and he has started putting his fingers into his mouth 3 days ago. He's been drooling for the past 2 weeks and there's some white color at his gum. He's been cranky and fussy too. I think he may be teething, we have yet to bring him to the doc.

My child is 9 weeks and she has been teething since she was 2 weeks, yes they can at this young, I dont know where you are but try to find this medication its called Camilia Teething. I can only find it in my local Shopers drug mart, its a all natrual teething medication from 0-30 months.

I hope this helps

My baby is 10.5 weeks and I am sure she is starting the teething journey! Lots of drooling and wanting to chew on things....I don't see anything yet though and there hasn't been any fever. My older daughter got her first two teeth at 13 weeks.

My son is 10 weeks and he has been drooling a lot in the last 2 weeks. I'm not looking forward to the extra cries and feavers, I dont like to see my baby in pain :(

yeah it's possible but teething in some case is a long process. My little girl is 10wks on wednesday, she has a bit of a temperature, drooling, chomping on bottle etc so I think she is aswell. Good luck

my son started drooling and biting at around 7 weeks. He's now 10 weeks and we just saw his pediatrician. He has a while bump on his gums that he said is pobably a tooth. He also said it is normal but it might take a month for the teeth to actually come in and that it would get worse!

I was reading the other day that one mom's baby already has two back teeth coming in at 8 weeks so it sounds like it's definitely possible

Listen to your gut! I called my pediatrican on saturday because I was convinced that my son is starting as well. No fever but he is so fussy and was sleepy today and has a cry that the bottle is not helping. I am going to try to freeze his binky. Let me know what happens. My son is only 8 weeks!
