  • My son started drooling like 10 times worse than he was already right before his first tooth popped through. He started going crazy on everything he could find, biting it and putting it in his mouth. It was all the regular signs of teething but more intense. He also started having trouble sleeping at night and was fussier than usual. Its really all just a guessing game. But man those suckers come in quick! I swear one day he didn't have any teeth and like 2 weeks later he had 2!

  • feel inside of her mouth and if you feel something hard or white coming in that is a tooth

  • my son teethed for almost 10 months before the first tooth actually popped through. you can go see your local dentist, they should have a nifty chart saying about what ages which teeth come through.....good luck!

  • okay. My daughter has all the drooling (she soaks her onesies all the time!), chewing and fussiness but when I feel in her mouth no little teeth yet (sigh). I hope its any day now not just because of the fussiness but I'm so excited about this milestone plus she's going to look so cute with one little tooth when she grins...

  • always have something cold for her to chew on like a cold teether or a cold washcloth or feed her a little of some Popsicle but the way I noticed my babies had teeth coming in was when I saw alitttle white to their gums they resembled a little white grain of rice at first. It was sooo cute....get her some oragel for babies.

  • cool. Thanks for the advice. She doesn't have a firm grip on teethers yet with her hands(she's five months) but I think she would like the cold washcloth, thats a good idea!
