Babies: 0 - 3 Months

Teething???

My 3 month old the past few days has been drooling like crazy chewing on everything. Along with fussiness and sweating. Could he be teething already??

Re: Teething???

  • Yes he could be but that doesn't mean you'll see any teeth any time soon.  It can take a looong time for teeth to work themselves out and some kids are more sensitive to it than others.  But it also could be nothing beyond regular infant drooling and chewing.

  • This is too funny. Not an hour ago my mom and I were having the same conversation about my 6.5 week old. He's been drooling all day, getting hot easily not sleeping and very fussy. I didn't think it was possible but I Googled it like a responsible parent ha ha. And sure enough it said its not the norm but not uncommon. So I'm very curious to see what other moms have to say.

    Yup, this.  I swore that DD1 was teething early and she didn't get any for a loooong time.

  • The process begins awhile before you actually see teeth. It's pretty rare for children to get teeth before 6 months, but it can happen. Babies learn through their mouth, so they tend to chew on a LOT whether they are teething or not. So, your LO could be starting the process, or could just be acting like a normal baby. If you see a slight fever along with chewing and fussiness, and in the next couple of days or weeks feel a slight bump on their gums, it might be the tooth pushing in and out.
