When do babies normally start teething? My daughter is almost three months old and I have noticed that she has been trying to chew on things a little bit. Do you think she is teething? When did your children start teething? And how did you know they were?

  • well my 1st son got his 2 bottom teeth at 8 weeks he had about all of his teeth by 12 months and we have a 5 mon old that is cutting teeth now u can see the tops of them he started around 4 months. Sometimes it takes awhile to see the teeth u know they are really fussy and they have alot more spit you know then usually. Just keep a watch out for the heads of them

  • yes if she is drooling a lot that is usually a sign, my son started drooling around 3 months (a lot more than he had to that point) and his teeth just poked through yesterday (5 and 1/2 months old). NOTE: it can take up to 4 months from the time they start "teething" until the teeth are visible.
