My boy Jarrod is only 4 months old but more often lately he has been eating his hands, drooling a fair bit and has a rosy left cheek. My big boy Brando started around 5 to 6 months with similar symptoms but didn't get his first tooth till he was 7 months. How early was your baby when they started teething?

My three month old is doing the same thing. He chews on his fingers, and drools like crazy.

There is no certain age for anything no child is the same, my 4 year old son got his first 2 teeth when he was 2 months old and had all of his teeth before he was even 1 whereas my 1 year old son didnt get his first teeth til he was 4 months old.

Both of my older kids got their first teeth a 4-months. They were the first of their class at school to lose their baby teeth and get permanent teeth as well. Mine kids liked chewing on a frozen washcloth. Good luck!

Believe it or not some babies are BORN with teeth,if they don't fall out on their own they usually get them extracted!Ouch!Can u imagine the pain those poor babies have to go through!?!?!

my daughter was drooling terribly from less than a month to almost 5 months! we put bibs on her all the time, but it gave her rashes so we ended up stopping that. it ranges per child.

My oldest had six teeth by the time he was 4 months old and he cut four of those in one night, my youngest didn't start teething until almost five months and boy was he cranky when he did. I just made sure that I had a lot of baby oragel on hand :)

Typically 4-6 months, but I have seen babies teeth as early as 4 weeks. In some weird case, babies have been born ALREADY with a tooth. BIZARRE. Point is... anytime. Best thing for it.... lots of love and chewy toys. Baby oragel works well, but not necessary. I'm not big on meds, but infant tylenol also helps. Always ask your physician for an appropriate dosing chart.

My friends little boy was born with his first tooth. I think that they start when they start. Some kids are born with them and some babies dont start till almost one. Just depends on the child. my son got his first tooth at 4 months.
