  • They look like they have tooth shaped smarties under there gums. Babies chew on everything!! My son started chewing at 2 months old but his teeth didnt come in until he was about 6 months old.

  • you'll know when your baby is teething. wash your hands and gently massage his/her gums and see if there is a certain spot that really feels good to rub. their gums will be more red than usual and if the teeth are close you will see pale whie spot(s). also if your baby drewls alot is a strong sign or when they chew on their fists.
