My 11 week old is a very easy going baby. Recently, he's been more fussy and has 2 white-ish bumps on his lower gums. He has been drooling more and trying to put his hands in his mouth. Today, he spit up x3 and he very rarely does that. I know most books say teething starts around 4-7 months but have any one else's babies started teeting early?

My daughter was born chewing on her hands... She had 4 teeth at 4 months. His will probably poke through around 4 months as well, that would be what the white spots are on his gums.. The pressure of the teeth underneath. My daughters both would always get the same amount of teeth.. My oldest always got hers in fours, the youngest in twos.
Rub or put pressure with ur finger on his gums when he is cranky.. normally they just need something to chew on to relieve some pressure.. When they poke through, he will be a happy lil man again!

yep of course he could. My bub was born with a milk tooth which we had to have removed the day after she was born and then a proper tooth came through witihin about 4 days and is now fully through. but no more since then. She is now 11 weeks old...

Oh yeah he could be teething. Some babies even come out with teeth already. Just get him so things to help the teething along. Good Luck

He could be teething. Give him cold stuff to chew on. I swear by pickles for teething. I used to slice a dill pickle for my son ( a cold pickle) and just let him gnaw on it. It never bothered his tummy and oddly he loves the taste of them. Even if he would get a piece of the pickle off and eat it it always came out normal in his poop. Pickles just seemed to help with the pain ...maybe it's just bc he was distracted with the taste and texture of it. But...it worked anyway.

ther's no such thing as "teething early".. they can teeth for days, weeks or even MONTHS before actually popping out a tooth.. if you use orajel pease be carful, it can numb their whole mouth and make it hard for them to breath or they could even "swallow" their tongues.. i suggest teething tablets, tylenol for when it's REAL bad and frozen pacifiers/clean washrag/teething rings.. good luck! :)

My son cut his bottom 2 teeth at 3 mos old, top 2 teeth at 4 mos old...By the time he was 1 he already had 15 teeth in. My little guy HATED the orajel, I found that Motrin worked well on really cranky days, as well as sleeping in his swing. He would get congested with his teething...

Yes, my 4 month started teething right before he turned 3 months. The 2 white bumps leads me to believe your baby is definately teething. I recomend teething tablits on top of orajel. Orajel is great for when you think your baby is in intence pain and the night kind is great for that but for everyday all day use I recomend the tablits. I believe you can manage the pain better with the tablits PLUS they are all natural if you use the brand Hylands. The Hylands brand also desolve alot better and faster. I hope I was helpful, good luck, And god bless!!
