My son is 18 weeks old and I know for sure he is getting his two front bottom teeth and it looks to me like he may also be getting the two on either side. Those I am not 100% certain of though but it sure looks like it. Is anyone else going through early teething? I don't know what else to do for him other than tylenol, the orajel doesn't seem to work for him. I sure hope he starts sleeping longer stretches again after they break through.

My duaghter got her first tooth at 3 months it isn't a front one either. it is one of her baby molars. we bought camalia teething stuff and it seems to help her calm and a vibrating teether which she loves to chew on!!

Hi Amber,
My son is 17 weeks old, but he has been having teething issues since he was 2 months old. He only just got his first tooth, centre top, yesterday and another came through centre bottom today. I have tried a couple of different things, Bonjela is not recommended under 6 months so I try to avoid it, but I have some natural remedies that might help. A friend recommended getting a grape or piece of fruit of some kind and freezing it and wrapping it in a clean calico type material, then letting bub chew on it. This has been really effective, it seems to sooth the pain alot and it dosen't hurt bub. It depends though if ur bub is on solids yet so that might not work for you.
Teething rings are great as well or wet a brand new face washer - just the corner and freeze that and then let bub munch on that. other then that he will probably chew his fingers, his toys, his rattles, and anyone elses fingers that he can get close enough. Hopefully something works for you, some bubs are harder with their teeth then others and you know whats best for your bub. Fingers crossed they come through soon and you get some sleep.

Yeah my little girl is starting to too. I can't see anything yet but her 18 month old sister got her first 2 at 3 1/2 months and she acted the same way. Restless and having trouble with bottles. Drueling and rosey checks. Try homepathic teething tablets it seems to help calm them down. Give 2 tablets under the tongue to dissolve. 1 at a time. Nothing seems to help 100%.

Not 100% sure, but I think that my son who is also 18 weeks old is teething. Just seems to like to bite things and is a bit stuffy and cranky.

My son is teething now too at 19 weeks and I`m sure they will break through any day now. He hates teething rings, pacifiers, and any other chew toys. He only wants his fingers, my fingers and anybody else`s fingers that are close enough to his mouth.

Tempra and kolik water is all he likes. Orajel is something I use only when nothing else will.

Mine got 2 teeth at 13 weeks and I suspect more are comming now. I've just been using tylenol and teething rings (put them in the fridge so they are cool and get ones that are different textures). Oragel doesn't work for more than a few minutes so I haven't tried it on him.
