  • My son started teething also and he is the same age. My oldest was the same (he had his 1st tooth at 4 months old). No one believed me that he was teething until that tooth came in. One way you can tell if they are teething is their gums get flat and you can see the spaces for the teeth starting to appear. They look almost like little blisters where a tooth would go. I have a list of great homeopathic teething products on my blog (http://myparenting411.blogspot.com). You should check them out in case she is teething. They are all natural and won't hurt her.

  • My daughter did the exact same thing and she didn't get her first tooth till she was almost 6 months. Some people said it was teething, but the Dr said thats just what babies do. It's just learning for them. When she starts to teeth......you'll KNOW it.

  • My son did the same thing yours is now. He is ten months old now and is working on his 9th tooth. his teeth came in way different than what i was told. Like, he didnt get his incisors first, he got two bottom teeth, then he got his two front teeth and they just sort of popped in after that. the hardest ones that we have found so far is his molars (two are coming in!). I can tell you one thing to use when she starts actually getting them in. Go to either the beauty or pharmacy section at walmart and by a vibrating back massager. It has three rounded ends that are supposed to loosen muscle knots but my son went crazy over the thing when he was chewing on it and cut two teeth in 4 days without a fever or any medicine
