When do babys usually start teething?

My daughter is going to be 3 months old on the 27 of sept. and she is now drooling a lot, and chewing on her hands and is a little bit more fussy. some days she runs a temp of 99.4 to 99.7.... she is great happy baby for the most part. so i dont know if this is just her being a baby cause thats what they do...or if she is teething....

  • Babies can teeth for months before any teeth actually come through. And they can start teething at any age. Some babies are actually born with teeth. Could you imagine that?

    Bulging gums – you can actually see the outline of the teeth as they are bulging inside the gums. The middle bottom teeth are usually the first place this happens.
    Drooling – it will seem like someone left a "drool faucet" on inside your baby's mouth.
    Fussing – baby often will become cranky and more difficult to console.
    Night waking – most babies sleep fairly well between one and four months of age, but now the honeymoon is over! Beginning around four months of age, baby may start waking up much more frequently at night.
    Biting – baby will start chewing on everything he can get his hands, or gums, on – his fingers, your fingers, toys, and especially the breast
