  • Seems a little young to be teething, but it's possible. Some babies exhibit signs of teething months and months before an actual tooth breaks through.

  • My son did that. I think he could feel the top two teeth run along his tongue and it fascinated him.

    But at 11 weeks, it's probably just that he's discovering his mouth and tongue. Now's the time to get some fun teething toys he can play with in his mouth.
