Yes definately!! My son got his first tooth around 4ish months! What's really good to use if your baby doesn't like teethers is cold apple or carrot, you can get little teething pouches to put them in so your baby doesn't choke if a small piece breaks off. Good luck hopes all goes well.

YES YES HE/SHE could very well be teething, TRUST ME, i could write several horror stories on my teething nightmaries, my 3 month started at 3 weeks, with his gums looking like a mountain range. My 8 year old had his first 4 to 8 teeth at 6 months, and was eating chicken breast, and my now 5 year old was along the same lines. If you want to invest in hylands teething tablets, look me up i go through them by the case,lol. Just don't use orajel,or ibuprofen, the swelling is there to push the teeth up, so you don't want to stop the swelling, and the orajel turns the gums to cement, also prolonging the teething process, trust me been there done that, hope that helps, mickey

I have 2 kids my first gothis teeth at 9 months and daughter at 12 months.. they both didnt like the teething rings I would use a cold or frozen wet cloth.. Its a little wet in the end but it seemed to work well.. as for the older babies I used frozen fruit in the self feeder mesh bag thingy(toyr r us sells them, ive seen them in Zellers too) it worked well as well as getting them some nutrience at the same time.. If really needed I would give advil and baby oragel( expecially before bed time) maybe that will help some of you get past the teething stage a bit better

Lisa Stapleton - I don't know about the biscuits, but my daughter doesn't like the teething rings either. She'll bite down and start SCREAMING! It's not so pleasant. Orajel seems to help, but it only last a few minutes. I don't really know how to comfort her.
I actually had my first tooth at 2 months! The only draw back was that I had all my permanent teeth in by the 5th grade. I also had my braces on then as well :( None of my other classmates had braces because they still had baby teeth. I did get mine off before everyone else though :).

yes it is very possible i have a two year old daughter who was teething at 3 months old but didnt get her first tooth till she was 6 months old. now i have a four month old little boy and he has been teething since he was 9 wks old so it all depends on ur baby each is different.

hi i believe it is possible. My jack (2 1/2years) started showing signs of teething at 2 months and he had two pop through on the same day at 4 months old. My Claire is 3 months old and her first tooth popped through today. Every child is different my sister's little girl's tooth didn't come in til she was 9 months old.

Hey! my lil one is 3 and a half months and shes shown some of the signs of teething too! I can feel some new bumps on her gums, so we're hoping that they'll cut through soon! She's been very grizzly on and off with red cheeks and constant dribbling since she was 10 weeks old. Does anyone know, is to early to give a baby of 3 and a half months rusks to chew on to help with teething?? my bubba hates the plastic teething rings i've offered (prefers my finger).

My oldest son started teething about 3 months and didn't cut his first tooth until he was 9 months old, he's 16 months old now and has a whole mouth full. My other son is 4 months and just cut his first tooth a few days ago, so it varies depending on the baby.

It is possible to start teething that early but rare. We thought our daughter was teething early around 3 mos too when she was fussy and drooled ALL THE TIME, but nothing actually poked through til 9 mos. Our son was even later at 11 mos. He didn't drool as much I believe because he took a pacifier and our girl didn't. It could be teething, maybe/maybe not. It's hard to tell until you actually see the 1st tooth. hope it helps.
