All kids are different. My oldest got her first tooth between 4-5 months and my younest got her first tooth when she was 7 months. There have also been babies born with teeth. Stick a clean finger in her mouth and rub her gums and see if you can feel any teeth underneath the gums. If so then yes she is teething. Get some orajel and buy some teethers cause it feels real good when their gums are massaged.

I'm so glad you asked this. I have a nine week old who is drooling like crazy and chewing on her hands. I've been watching for a fever and so far nothing. I'm thinking about giving her a teether to chew on, but I thought it was too early. Now I probably will.

My daughter is now a little over 3 months old and she started teething when she was 2 1/2 months. I thought it was too early but sure enough she has atleast 2 teeth comin in on the bottom, this week ive noticed she is chewing her thumb on both sides and i can feel the little teeth! She wont take a teething ring so i just let her chew her hands and she loves her thumb.

My son started do that at the age too. I kept saying that if he were any older I would think he was teething. Come to find out a week later, he was! He had 2 teeth on bottom coming in. He is now a year old and has 12 teeth - including 4 molars!

my daughter started drooling early too i asked my doctor and he said they can start teething early .. just cuz u dont see the teeth dont mean there not teething she had her first tooth when she was four months .. usually when the tooth is pushing up it can give ur baby a high fever .. tempra and a cold cloth to suck on or those cold soothers helps out a lot
