i think it is possible..my son is almost 6 months and has been teething for 4 of them.. so with it came irritability, screaming, drooling,chewing, and restlessness... but i also have a question... can the back teeth come through first? as the front of my sons gums are reasonably soft yet at the back is quite hard and seem whitish.. is it teeth?... or?

ABSOLUTELY! My son cut his first tooth at 3 months and 1 day! (And now at 12 1/2 months, he's working on number 14!) He never was a paci baby, nor would he use any teethers (I did find some small ones that would have fit in his mouth had he wanted to chew on them at Walmart). We survived with a cold washcloth (sometimes he'd gnaw on that for a bit), Orajel, and Tylenol. Good luck!

Oh very possible :-) And ALOT of work (for both of you!). My son had his 2 bottom teeth come through at 4 months, His top 4 at 6/7 months, and I just discovered a new one today! It's the third bottom one, and he is just into his 8th month. Good luck to you.

Oh yes!! Welcome to my world!! My daughter had her first tooth brake through one day after her four month birthday!! she had a mouth full of 8 teeth by 6 months!! She is now cutting 2 back teeth at 9 months! We just used baby tylonal and it worked for her she had a pretty easy time with the front teeth but with her back teeth she has been pulling at her ears (Dr. says no infection) and not sleeping well at night :( Good luck with your little teether!!!

Yes it is.  My son started then but it did not pop though till 6 months.  I am dealing with the exact same thing now with my almost 2 and a half month old daughter now so I know what you are going through.  The tablets worked well with my son, I better go get some more.  Good luck!

Even though doctors refute any evidence, teething can cause slight temperatures, diarrhea, and loss of appetite. It can also take months to actually see any teeth erupting. I find tylenol works great to relieve the pain to help nap and with the fussiness. I find it comes and goes and somedays the little ones just need more hugs and kisses than others. Good luck...she'll get through it (and so will you!)

Yes It is totally possible. My lil girl has teeth developing within her gums. They may not come threw the gums all the way up until she is 12 months....ya never know. But it is very possible. I let my daughter suck on a cold wash cloth ( one thats been in the freezer)

Yes yes and yes!  My little one had one bottom tooth by 3 months and now both bottom ones at 6 months.



I second and third and fourth the Hylands Teething Tablets (they now also have gel!).



Just remember that this will pass soon!  Just nurse nurse nurse for comfort, use the tablets, cold washcloths, etc.



Three months is around when I was bit too.  Obviously it wasn't intentional and I freaked out but have learned when to tell when she is about to bite vs. suck.

it's actually even possible for them to be born with a tooth or more, but yeah...my son started at the end of his 2nd month.

my son cut his first tooth when he was 6 weeks! after waiting it out for at about an hour at bedtime, after exhausting every other possibility, i give him infant tylenol, and he falls to sleep within an half hour. :)

My daughter cut her first four teeth at four months, then she got another four teeth at six months. I could tell she was teething when she was fussy for no apparent reason, and chewing on her fingers lots. If the pain is minor, we use camilia (a homeopathic treatment that comes in small vials of water - it's very safe and mild. Basically like drinking a small amount of calming chamomile tea). We also use Hyl;and's Teething Tablets & Gel. If the pain is severe (which it was with four teeth breaking the skin at once!) we used infant's Motrin.

My daughter cut her first tooth at 3 1/2 months.  Hyland's also has a teething gel, which is a little easier to use at the younger ages than the tablets and it helped us.  Also, you can put a wet washcloth in the freezer.  It's easier for them to suck/chew.  Hope this helps.

Our son started teething at 3 months - but the first teeth didn't cut through til 6 1/2 months.  So she definitely could be teething but they may come quick or they may take there sweet time to come in like our sons did.



We use Hylands Teething Tablets, Baby Orajel and Motrin in addition to all of the other things that people tell you to do that didn't help that much with our son.  He did like a wet cold wash cloth to chew/bite on sometimes.

My daughter definitely had her fussy periods, I just nursed her or held her.  I hear some babies get fever, but mine never did. Not sure if you are nursing, but if you are: while she was teething, (teeth not all the way through) my nipples were sore after nursing, but I just used some lanolin. I recommend a teething ring you can put in the fridge to cool.  She may just want to chew on a blanket as well.  My daughter never used pacifiers to suck, but when she started teething, she loved the soothie pacifier to just chew on.  Hope this helps:)  I have also heard that there are tablets that are hypoallergenic that are sold in health food stores they are supposed to be safe, and help with the teething process.

Yup it sure is possible!  My daughter did the same thing, and cut her first tooth at 3 and a half months, she just got her third at 6 months and I can see the next one coming!

Absolutely teething!!   My daughter started at 3 months also, then it kind of went away.  Now it's back again (6 months old) and still no signs of those little teethers!  My family is very organic and we don't believe in any of the ointments or tablets out there...Some good teethers- frozen rubber teethers, your finger, a rubber spoon.  Google helps out with some more good ideas too!

Yes, it is possible. Mine started around 3 months with the drooling, chewing her fingers, etc... And now (4 months) she is doing the same, except a lot more and we can feel teeth just under her gum. Hylands teething tablets work great.
