How do you know 4 sure your baby is teething??

I have a 12 week old girl, who I believe is teething. I think she has been since around 8 weeks. She is drooling alot, never done it before. She is chewing on her hands now. Not sucking like she does when she is hungry. She is fussy & cranky at times, and I feel bumps on her top gum. What do you think, is this teething??

  • Could be. Teeth move a little and then don't come up sometimes. Does she have a low fever? Is she fussy? Red cheeks? Could be the start. Try and see what brings her comfort and if it makes her drooling stop, etc.
