chemists have behind the counter gel for little bub's.. you'll probably find that his teeth will go back up! It's never to early for teething, some babies are born with a tooth!

my first child got her first tooth at 15 weeks; so it's not unheard of! my other daughter was born 9/11/08, and for the past 3 weeks has been drooling uncontrollably! what worked best: wetting the corner of a clean washcloth, roll it to make it long/skinny, then freeze it. my daughter loved to chew on the frozen end...it would soften and stay cold for quite some time. i never used gels, so don't know if they are worth it or not. good luck.

Thank you for this. My little one has been whinging for a couple of day's and I had no idea why. She is 12 weeks and I didn't realise that she could teeth so early. Her cheeks are red, she is bitting her fist and screamed no stop for 3 hours last night. Your tips are a great help and I will try all of them.

THANK YOU SOOOO MUCH. xxx

Although he is already teething, he may not get any teeth cut through until he's about 6 months old. It takes awhile for them to come through the gum. If he is just drooling alot and only a little fussy at night or during naps then a pacifier should help soothe him and give him something to chew to relieve some pressure off his gums. Once it gets to where he is really fussy all day and trying to bite everything (his teeth are about to come through very soon) then you can go down the baby aisle in the store (or toothpaste aisle) and get BABY orajel gel to rub on - this worked for mine until it got really painful then they were just frustrated that their tongues were numb because they licked it. Hurricane is similar to this but works a little better. The best thing that I found were dissolving (immediately) tablets that are homeopathic. I found them at Walgreen drug store so I'm not sure what other storees carry them. They're just called Teething Tablets and I'm not sure who makes them.

all babies are different my son was born the day b4 yours and he also is teething so long as its not distressing him and you think its not causing any pain just leave him they usually chomp down on their hand but if you think he is in pain take him to see your doctor and they will recommend something for him with my daughter i used aston and parsons powders which worked a treat

They do have a teeth gel that is safe its just a baby orajel! My son was born the 28th of Sept and has already started teething! My first son started teething at 2 1/2 months and I could see the tooth coming in by four months and by his sixth it was up. Hope your lil one feels better soon!!

Babies start their "Oral Phase" at round about 10 weeks of age. It is then that they start exploring their worlds by putting everything in their mouths. It is unlikly that your little one has started teething. The eruption date of the lower incisor (normaly the first tooth to erupt) is between 6 - 10 months. Natal teeth are teeth that are present at birth - but it is normaly only something that resembles a tooth and the primary dentition then erupts at the normal dates. Neonatal teeth are teeth that emerge through the gingiva during the first month of life.

He hates all our teething rings ( he doesn't quite understand them) we tried a wash cloth he hated it and my finger is only good for so long that's why we tried other things.... I switch back and forth between tylenol and motrin .... the one thing I would recommend trying is the tablets tho they seem to do the most improvement

my son is teething too, don't use gels as the pharmacist says they are still to young for it. I have started with the teething rings already just put them in the fridge. Try to find small simple rings for there small mouths. I bought a toothbrush...well a gumbrush and I just rub his gums to stimulate them...he didn't like this at first. Also if he is really sore and crying and nothing else works there is tylenol for babies for teething and the instructions are on the box. I just let him teeth and he is only 3 months...he is starting to grab things to put in his mouth so I just try to have the rings ready for him or teether blankets with the rubber corners. Hope this helps

hi my little one is 11 weeksold and he has gone from sleeping right through to waking up at 4 again because hes teething ! Hes also a bit grumpy and red in the face , i tried gel and it doesnt really work. However my health visitor suggested teething cyrstals you poor the satchet in their mouth and it dissolves , instantly my little boy was smiling and laughing again they are brilliant and cost about a fiver from any chemist also completly natural so perfect. Would highly recomend !!!

You should try Camilia. I can't reccommend it enough! You can get it at Shoppers Drug Mart or any health food store. It's an herbal remedy that my pediatrician reccommended for my first dd. It really works and is especially helpful if they are refusing to feed.

my sophia has started teething (one on top and one on bottom) she was born on the 9th. We tried the wet colths and the ring but she didn't like neither. My husband bought the oralgel and put it on her gums before i read the package. It was cute to watch her lick her lips and tongue trying to understand why she couldn't feel them, she was relieved and then I read the package about the 4 months. I think it's more of a guideline then a requirement, just don't use it 24/7.

My little girl likes to 'chew' on a small ice cube wrapped in a clean washcloth. I got the tip from my Mom. She says we loved it too.

It's never to early to start teething, some babies are born with teeth!! You can buy teethe rs that go in the fridge so the cold helps numb their gums, I really don't see any harm in you offering a clean finger to chew (no Sharp nails) or even just massaging the gums, it worked for my first, my 12 week old has always chewed her fists and started chewing daddies finger last night, this may not be a sign of teething though. Red cheeks are the main sign. If your little one ends up with an upset tummy, that isn't really anything to do with teething it may be a bug, so just keep an eye, many people have different ideas on signs but a midwife informed me of this. I'm sure your not clueless, I worked in nurseries for 5 years when I had my first and she was still overwhelming!! xx
