Hello! To answer you question I will talk from experience with my current 18 month old. She also teethed early. At 3 months old she had her first teeth and I cannot express enough how important it is to brush and make sure she/he does not fall asleep with the bottle or breast milk. My baby's teeth were prone to cavities due to her early teeth development and we are currently suffering the consequences. We cleaned her teeth since they came in, but when I returned to work her teeth were still growing and I skipped her morning routine because she was sleep when she was dropped off at the daycare. To make matters worse, she fell and chipped her front teeth when she was 1 year and since, those teeth started to decay fast (specially the back part of the teeth). We had started talking to the dentist early, so when we took her to the dentist for an update on her chipped teeth the x-ray showed cavities growing. All I can tell you now is to please try your best to take care of the baby teeth. I don't want any parent/baby to go through the same troubles my baby is.

It's really normal to get teeth that early, My girlfriends daughter is going thru it right now and shes will be 3 months on the 11th. dont worrie about it just let him suck on your finger and rub his gums, It makes it feel so much better. Hope i could help and everything goes well. Britt

they start teething about 2 months before they get teeth...an they can get teeth at any time...so if they are 'slobbery' an pullin on their ears...an biting...but have no major fever or throwing up...they might be teething... (they usually get the front two bottom teeth first...then either the top two middle teeth...or the two teeth just outside the middle two on the top...) if you press the gums down ...by rubbing them...with or without a little ambisol(sp)... it helps the teeth 'break through' so they dont fuss so long........... good luck.....

My daughter got her first tooth popping through at 4 months, so I think its probably normal. Look for drooling, discomfort, even a fever, diaper rash or ear ache might indicate teething (my doctor said). My daughter is now 16 months and she has almost all of her teeth, so I think it just depends on the baby.

Yes baby's can start teething at any age. Some start earlier than others. My son started teething at 3 months. Sometimes, they can come up and disappear quite a few times before one actually comes through. One of my sons teeth started doing that at 3 months, and then at about 4 months, got 6 through in a two week period. He then didn't get anymore for a couple of months, and has now just got his 7th tooth through.

This is completely normal, my son was teething by 3 months and by 4 months he had his two bottom teeth! He is now almost 7 months and is getting more teeth on the top. The first time the baby teethes it can last for up to 8 weeks so you and your baby may have to suffer with the discomfort for a while but after the first tooth the teething process goes by faster! We used Ora-jel and Infant Tylenol daily for our little one while he was teething and it helped with his symptoms a lot, make sure to ask your pediatrician first about using the Tylenol though! Good luck to you both.

chloe started teething at 12 weeks, but the gums were red and inflamed, not white. she also had issues with getting the first 4 through, we could feel and clearly see them, then next day the gums had healed around them again, was 7 months by the time they were through and stayed through, mand x

Its very normal. My daughter started teething at 2 months, then got her 2 bottom teeth when she was 4 months old. now she has 8 going to be 9 teeth pretty soon and shes going to be a year old in a couple of days. They can start teething whenever but the teeth will appear and then just vanish and then soon they will pop threw. what you can do to help them come in is have your baby chew on a cold wash rag. If you have any rhubarb or if you can get any.. you can take the rhubarb juice and rub it on the gums if they're irratated that helps too.. I heard that if you do that its just like giving them rum..and it brings down the irratation level.

i thought the same thing when my little one was that age.it can be possible, but don't get to excited cause it may be nothing,take her to a doctor and see what is said.i did and they told me my baby had thrush.if your baby is drooling alot and biting on things it is a sighn of teething.i was told for comfort you can give them baby tylonal. i hope i have helped

yeah, that's possible. my boy has the same thing and i cut my first tooth when I was two months. The tooth might not pop through though. If she gets fussy and drools a lot then maybe, but it might just stay in there peeking out at you.

I have a 4 month old son who started teething about a week or so ago...I thought it was strange, it seemed so early...then I felt really stupid when I thought about, my oldest son was born with a tooth! It's apparently NEVER too early! LOL

Get teeth early is not a problem- my granddaughter was 12 hours old when her first tw bottom teeth came through. See was born with hers- they were two whit marks on her gum at birth. Main thing is that is she drooling a lot and her mouth will be sore to touch. Hope this helps
