Most definitly, my son started teething at three months and had 2 teeth by 5 months and 6 teeth by 7 months. Teething gel and panadol worked the best for him (and lots of cuddles)

Yes could be as my son had teeth at 7 weeks. Massage gently her teeth to calm her down. I also use gel for teething pain.

My son is three and a half months and he has been teething for two or three weeks now. There is nothing to worry about just invest in some teething toys my son likes the ones that viberate and baby anbesol and tylenol. Hope everything goes well for you.

Yes, it's very possible. My son starting teething at 3 months. Though he didn't even get his first tooth until he was 11 1/2 months. But yes, she could be teething, especially if rubbing her gums calms her down. I would suggest Infant's Tylenol and/or Baby Orajel. I would use those only at night, that way she can get a good night's sleep and she can learn a little bit of pain tolerance during the day (I know that sounds kind of mean to some moms, but babies need to learn a LITTLE bit of pain tolerance, otherwise every bump and bruise they get will be practically unbearable for them when they're older). Though if she starts screaming during the day and even rubbing her gums won't help or giving her teethers won't help, I would give her a little bit of the Tylenol.

My son started teething at 2 weeks and didn't stop for 9 months! He had a full set of teeth minus 2 molars by the time he was a year old! So yes, definitely she could be teething. The only thing that worked for my son was infant Motrin, but Tylenol works for alot of babies too. You can actually give them both, as one is a painkiller and one is an anti-inflammatory, if it gets really bad for her. Massage her gums alot, it helps the teeth to push through faster. My son also really liked crushed ice in a ziploc, and then I wrapped it in a handtowel. The cold feels really good on their sore gums! You can also find little mesh bags that clip closed, just fill it with ice or frozen fruit. They get all the yummy cold juices without worrying about swallowing the big chunks. You can usually find them in any baby isle, I got mine at Walmart. Good luck!

It is completely ok : ) My son was the same way as well. Teethers, infant tylenol, and mommy is the best way to go.

It could definitely be teething. My firstborn had 4 teeth by the time he was 4 months. You just have an early bird on your hands!
