How old was your lil one when they started teething? Were they cranky all the time?

My daughter is 2 months old and is starting to get her left front bottom tooth in and it seems all she does is drool, she isn't a cranky lil bugger like most the lil kids I know. Is it common for her to be getting her teeth already?

  • Sure why not? Some kids are born with teeth! Neither of mine were all that cranky until they started to get the back molars and the eye teeth. But they weren't nightmares just clingy and cranky. My son started to get teeth at 3 months and my daughter at 2 months.

  • yea its common. my niece is barely 3months and started teething. she's not cranky, she just drools all the time and chews on her hand. Everything goes to her mouth now, and comes out dripping wet.

  • AAW! lol. My son and daughter started at 4mnths and they didn't cry eather, just drool. I usualy give then crushed eyes or whatever to diminish all pain and excess water {drool}. just get a bib, one were the back of it is plastic, so she won't damp her clothes. lol
