  • It's a little on the early side, but all babies are different. My baby didn't get his first teeth until he was 6 months old, my cousin's baby got his at 3 months. My friend's baby was over a year before she got her first teeth. We loooove Highland's Teething Tablets. They are homeopathic and work magic! Don't use BabyOrajel though. Not only does it taste nasty, but it actually toughens the gums making it harder (and take longer) for teeth to pop through. Good luck

  • It is normal and you can give him teething rings, the app dose of tylenol, teething tablets, freeze a rag and let him chew on it. But just becaues he is teething doesnt mean you will see a tooth soon! My daughter has been teething since she was 3 months and now 8 and it just now ready to come through! Good luck!

  • I believe I'm going through the same thing. They are growing up TOO fast.

  • Some babies have been known to be BORN with teeth! They can start the teething process, but it doesn't mean they're cutting teeth yet. I'd get a doc's opinion!
