  • Those could be signs. Some babies start teething at around 4 months, most between 5 and 7. If your son is chewing things hard and crying a lot that's a sign of teething. Also low grade fevers, runny nose, rash, loss of appetite. Take a clean finger and feel his gums. They usually get their bottom teeth first, so start there. If his gums feel soft and mushy then for sure it's his teeth. Depending on his age you can give him baby motrin to ease the pain. You can also get some baby orajel, but the motrin is better and works longer. Hope that helps!
