YES!! the tooth may not have surfaced yet, but imagine, its coming from the level around his nose downward. It has a little ways to travel before it pops out, but yes, that is definitely teething. What helped my girl get through it was wrappng gauze bandage around my smallest finger and letting her nibble on it (dont go too far in the mouth...I saw this on that Doctor show that comes on Discovery Channel and tried it and it actually worked.) also, if he likes pacifiers, put a couple back ups in the freezer or put a freezy toy in the freezer for when he is getting fussy. My little one also ran fevers at this time, so a little baby tylenol assisted the really tough nights.
