  • my friends son started at 3mths and didnt get his first tooth til 11mths...I think he may have had gas tho cuz she never would burp him like she should and he would eat and eat 8oz bottles back to back.They say if they act hungry it could be gas....thats why i'm thinkin hers was gas.But its possible for your LO to be teething!

  • Try clove oil...it really helps with the discomfort for baby.

  • Around 3 to 4 months the hand to mouth reflex really starts to develop. At this age babies will put anything in their mouth and try to chew on it. It's a very important motor reflex but it doesn't mean that teeth are always right behind. You baby might not get that first tooth for several months. My DD started at around 4 months and is not 6 months and still toothless!
