  • My 8 month old has 6 teeth fully in. Yes she very well could be teething. Look in her mouth and see.

  • No I don't think so. I think this is cute though that you're asking this because, every mother that I know (including myself) asked this question around this time! We're all so worried haha.

    You'll soon find out that's when babies just start to drool, not teeth will come in till much later for the most part. I mean you may have an early bird baby, but I doubt it since for some reason all mom's start thinking this around this age.

  • It could be. It's rare that they teeth that early, but it's definately possible.
    My son's always been a drooler, but he's going on 6 months and no teeth yet. They're settling though and I can feel a little bump, so I'm thinking it'll be soon. yay for me, lol.

  • Your baby CAN be teething now. It's not the average age for teething, but it can happen on either end of the spectrum - I had a friend who's child didn't get his first tooth until he was a year old...late? early? It's just how his body is growing. :)
