  • If she's drooling more and seems to not want to eat as much, she could be teething. Each child is different but my 5 did that when they were teehing and they were about your daughters age. She could also be very fussy, maybe a little low-grade fever. You could also massage her gums with your finger. If she doesn't like it, she may not be teething. Hope this helps.

  • A lot of times the gums will have a red swollen area. Take a look in there and see!
