  • the gum will be very soft for one. the baby will probably be nawing on things/hands pretty avidly.

  • the gums will be bulging white. You will see a little knot on the gums. You will see that particular part of the gum turn white. and the baby will be fussy, sometimes babies run fevers, have diarrhea, and drool a lot, chew on their hands or fingers or other objects.

  • How old were they? My son has been chewing and suckiing his hands since he was born. And drooling and chewing for a few months. And for about the last month his bottom gums have been white but nothing.
