My sons teeth started to bud at 3 weeks old. My cousin had teeth when he was born so its very possible. They have teething binkys online at babies-r-us you can try those.Ask your babys ped if you can give him some Tylenol or Motrin.

My son is 3 weeks old and he started to get fussy a couple days ago and we thought it was gas but nothing was helping. He has been blowing spit bubbles and having a lot of saliva. My mom noticed that rubbing his botton gums soothed him. The nurses at his dr office told me there was no way he could be teething and they didn't reccommend using orajel on him. But I tried it and it is the only thing that calms him so that is the only answer I found. I am so glad to read about your child Rebecca! With this being my first child I like to hear other's experiences.

every child is different it is quite possible he is, the best thing i found to help with fussiness was an all natural teething tablet that dissolves in the mouth it works much better than tylenol i think and easier on the liver :-)

There are many ages as to when to cut teeth. Average age is between 5 and 8 months but teething can start as early as three months. Late arrivals can cut earlier as the teeth have been evident in the gums for longer and vice versa, early arrivals cut generally later. Teething rings are very useful and they are generally colourful so he will be attracted by the pictures.

yes unfortunatley lol :) My daughter started at about 6 months and had her first tooth at 1 yr old. But they can start coming in at pretty much anytime. Try teething rings if he seems to been in pain. Drooling can also be a sign so look for that! Good luck It just keeps getting better! ;)

Watch out for a runny nose too thats also a sign. I gave my daughter bongela. i also got these teething things that sorta look a little like a mouth gaurd attached to a tummy or pacifer, they go in the fridge and that seemed to help alot. Good luck it can be a hard time, poor little guy :( My daughters cutting her front two at the moment.

technically he could be. my daughter started to cut teeth at about 2 and a half months it eventually come through just to see the tip and now its gone back again. Babys can start teething from like 4 months onwards. But some babys are born with teeth. Aparantly its normal to have teeth appear and then go away again. He may continue to teeth for ages and then one day a few teeth will be there. All babys are different though so there is no real time to start.

i know its awful and all you want to do is take the pain away, but it will stop and he will forget all about it. just remember the quicker they come the quicker it will stop. once he hits 3months you can give him calpol or even dozol that will help him sleep better, just dont feed him or he will associate crying with gettin fed

if you can get it teetha granuals are great and its homeopathic, just tip the sachet into his mouth and he will move it around his gums, bongela is good if he doesnt lick it off and try putting a teething ring in the fridge and then holding it on his gums for him to chew that will calm the swelling
