teething already?

my ds is almost 12 weeks old and the last couple of days he has been chewing on his hands like crazy and he's been a little stuffed up the last two days. he's not fussy or anything like that. do you think maybe he just prefers his hand over his passy?

  • Babies can be born with teeth. My son started slobbering at 2 months. He had his first tooth at four months(16 weeks,LOL)

  • I've heard of babies getting teeth at 3 months, so it's definitely possible.

  • My dd started teething around that age. She got her first tooth at 15 weeks and had 2 by the beginning of her 4th month!

  • I go by weeks as well My Lil Man is 22 weeks old and has been teething for about a month but no teeth yet and from the feel of it his top teeth are going to be the 1st to come in instead of his bottom teeth .. He just takes after his daddy his daddy got his top teeth then his bottom teeth our girls got thier bottom teeth first

  • Their teeth will drop into their gums long before they cut through. Are his gums getting hard? If they are, he's starting the teething process.
