Whos baby teethed early, how old and what did you do to relieve the pain. My baby has two raised light pink lumps on his gums, he is dribbling quiet abit, is unsettled, has slight nappy rash and blotchy cheeks which all says teething but he is only 6 weeks old!

Teething is unpredictable...it can happen anytime, infact one of my friend's baby is born with 2 teeth...as far as the rash goes, your baby must be having sensitive skin...my daughter got a nappy rash and face rash after 1 month....i used MUSTELA products (body cream, nappy rash cream, shampoo & body wash) for a month and it helped alot...try to change diapers every 1 hour till the rash is gone....and continue using the nappy rash cream for a while....

My daughter will be 1 in 2 days and her two teeth are barely coming out!! She isn't fussy at all about it because she chews on everything!!! I would put her passy in her mouth and in 3 seconds it's out and something else is in its place!! Just like what Stevie has mentioned...baby orajel (that also cleans gums!!!) teething rings, frozen teething rings...and the mesh bags that have a plactic teething handle attached to it is GREAT!!! Babies love cold things...freeze baby food or what I do sometimes is put frozen grapes in them and let them chew away!! Good Luck!

some babies teeth early and very few are even born with teeth haha my son wasnt early i guess maybe on time or something but orajel or teething tablits infant tylenol frozen teething rings frozen wash clothes and if you guys have a mesh bag thing {in the us we do} you can put ice in it and that will help or you could put chopped ice in it or something and that will help cut the gums so the teeth come out easier and faster
