My baby is 4 months old. She will be 5 months in 2 weeks. She's growing her 1st tooth so I know she will be teething real soon. But how will I know when she's hungry or when she's on pain from teething?

Maybe try giving her a teething ring if she's being a bit fussy. If that doesn't work, she's probably hungry. Or, vice versa. I've always heard that (as babies anyway) they will only eat what they really need, so not to force them. If you give her a bottle and she doesn't want it, it must be the teething. Good luck! Remember, infant tylenol can be your friend. :)

well by now she should be getting hunry around the same time everyday so you should kind of get an idea if shes hungry of teething....but if you still aren;t sure it doesnt hurt trying to feed her and see if that does the trick or try giving her a frozen teething ring and see what happens......I know teething babys aren't fun but thank goodness it goes by fast.....Good Luck
