Why is my 9 week old daughter chewing on her passy and the bottle nipple?

And she is whiney ... we give her a bottle she eats a little bit of it and then just tries to bite the nipple then we change her diaper and she stops whining a little bit but then she starts back up.. shes not screaming at all shes just whiney likes shes in pain and the doctor said shes not colicy.. but i dont understand whats wrong with her... i just want to help her and it seems like everything i do only soothes her for at the most 10 minutes and then she just whines and bites on her hand .. :(

  • Its possible that she is teething. Yes, it can happen at 2 months, even earlier than that too.

  • Give her something cold to chew on. Kaylee liked it when I would wrap a washcloth around an ice-cube, and hold it for her to chew on.

    Teething toys that are textured and are made to put in the refrigerator are good too (although Kaylee never liked those)
