  • yep. my kids were teething that young. but remember, just because he's teething doesn't mean you'll actually see teeth soon. both my kids teethed at that age and i didn't see any teeth until 6 months. teething drops work great. i've never used the teething tablets but i've heard they're great too. i'd strongly suggest you NOT use orajel, that makes the gums tougher so it's harder for the teeth to get through, thus making the teething process longer and worse. it can also numb his throat making him gag easier.
