  • our dd started at 2 1/2 months. drooled more than usual, was biting on everything she could find, really red cheeks (mostly the site where the teeth wanted to come through). first tooth didnt show until she was 4 1/2 months old though.

  • She started at about 2 months but the first tooth didn't break through until 4 months.
    How did I know?
    She was fussy, cranky, drooling like crazy, and chewing on her hands like mad.
    Chewing toys helped, pain meds helped, cold things helped, teething tablets helped.

  • We knew he was teething because we woke up one morning and he had a tooth broke through! Seriously! We didn't have a clue with any of his teeth (this is my oldest and my second) until they were in.
