  • Yes. Teething symptoms can occur months before any teeth come through. My first started teething at 3 months and didn't get any teeth until 6 months. My second started teething around the same time, and she's 6 months now and still no teeth.

  • Yes. Teeth start moving in before you can see them and sometimes symptoms can occur long before you see teeth.

  • Teething can take weeks before the tooth even pops through. Even before it shows signs of popping through.
