Hello all. I am a mother of a 3 month old ( on Christmas) And I was getting told by everyone that he is starting to teeth. I have no clue and I don't notice any signs. When did your babies start teething and what were the signs and how did you get through it??

my daughter started teething at 2.5 months she first got bumps on her gums and then she got a white spot that came through at about 3 months. i noticed that she was chewing on everything and anything and drouling lots. some people have told me that babys get bum rashes, mine didnt, also ive been told that tugging on the ear is a sign and my daughter does.

my daughter is 5 1/2 months old i pretty certain she started teething around 21/2 -3 months she started drooling a ton and bit down pretty hard on everything you would let her put in her mouth. she has yet to actually cut a tooth they say it can take a long time to actually cut one. and the symptoms are very much like the ones of an ear infection.

My son got his first tooth when he was four months old and like two days after he got his first one he got a second one. My son was always biteing things and alot of drooling.

He just may but...most babies won'tget those teeth till closer to 9 months- a year. I have 3 children and mine got them any where from 8 to 11 months. I've head the later the better. Good luck. If he seems to be in pain when he's older teething tablets work well

This might sound crazy but mine was 2 months old when he started...he had all the classic teething symptoms...when I took him the doctor and told her what I thought she thought I was nuts...but then she checked his mouth and found some sore looking red bumps ...whose crazy now ? lol

Hi! I'm the mother of a 5 month old and he stated teeting about a month ago. I first noticed that he started to drool ALOT!!! And he was a little more cranky than usual. This went on for almost a month before two little teeth popped up in the bottom of his mouth. I don't know how long it's going to take for them to come all the way in. He's my first so sorry I can't offer you more advice than that. But my best friend who is a mother of 2 told me that after the first tooth, it's smooth sailing from there!!!



Good Luck,



Gabbie
