My son is normally a really happy baby,He never really cries he just whines. But for the past 3 days hes been extremely cranky,and crying like hes in terrible pain and he's drooling alot, i mean soaking his shirt in 30 mins, sticks his whole fist in his mouth, and hes refusing breastfeeding and has a hard time sucking the bottle, he does have a very mild case of thrush but we just went through that last month and he'd had it really bad all over the inside of his mouth, his gums, his tongue, and it didnt bother him at all. his attitude got so bad i took him to the Ped today and he said he didnt think he would be teething this early, but theres two bumps on his top gums like where his canines would come in and they look like they have white heads. Is it possible for the top teeth to come in first?

Yes very possible my son started teething at three months he would chew my fingers chest and face. I put a little Orajel on his gums low and behold happy baby!!! ^.^ give your baby a teething toy, and a little humphreys or Orajel and knock out the possibility of teething!

Bonjela is good u can start using it at 4 mths it helps a bit

And the teething rings with gel u refrigerate are good too

My baby boy just turned 4 months and for the last 4-5 days has been eating both fists and drooling like crazy and even getting angry :( . He is sleeping less now as well! I tried humphreys 3 and all sorts of teething rings / toys but they just make him angrier. Can we use baby oragel? Has anyone tried that?

I was just about to post something about teething when I saw this. I didnt think that they got teeth this young but my son is drooling like a St. Bernard and chews on his hands and fingers all the time. Idk how many times Ive changed him today because his shirt is slobbered all over.
