I'm a first time mom and as if this weren't scary enough, I think my daughter may be teething. She's only 2 months old but she has been exhibiting signs. She drools nonstop, she's all of a sudden in love w/ her paci and she's always "chewing" on her hand. I have a teething ring but when I give it to her, she cries. What should I do? I mean, how can I be 100% that she is teething?

I would doubt if he is teething already. Seems really early. My son is 7 months and he just had his first tooth start to poke thru his gums about a week ago. I believe its just "normal" for babies to drool and chew on their hands because it was the only toy they had in your womb. Sucking on their fingers (and toes once they are able) is just a comfort thing. And about the baby oragel....put some on your lips.....and tell me if you still wanna use it on your baby. I prefer Teething Tablets. The are homepathic (all natural) and are availble everywhere. I get mine at Target and they are with the baby stuff not in the medice area. Good Luck!

you can stick ur finger in her mouth and feel around for any bumps on ur gums thats how i found out my son was teething he started at 6weeks old sumtime if he gets upset i let him chew on my finger for a bit he loves it baby oragel works well for him to i only use the littlest drop and make sure i dont get it on his touge... i had problems with teething rings cause they dont fit in his mouth because they are made fore 3-4 month olds i started keeping his passie in the fridge too the coolness seemed to help oh the passie i got is a teething passie it has ridges on it to help them get the teeth out works wonders hope this helped dont worry ur not alone

You can't be 100% sure until the teeth start coming trough, which can take a while after the signs first start, but this is normal baby behaviour either way. Make sure you have baby pain medicine and teething gel in case she needs it but teething is nothing to worry about at any age x
