Is it possible for a 4 month old to start teething?

She has constantly started drooling, chewing on fingers, and very loose stools. She is fussy at times, but not constantly. Just trying to figure out if this could be possible?

  • yeah some babies are born with teeth, rare but they are. my LO got her first tooth at 3 months or a week before 3 months.

    some they just come in faster! now at 16 months my dd has 16 teeth!!

  • 4 month could teeth some babies are born with teeth so its possible :).. an also just because shes drooling doesnt exactly mean shes teething.

    we asked the same question to our dr. an he said if someone drools alot in the family our son might have inherited it.

    good luck! :)

  • They can START teething as early as 2 months but the tooth may not pop through until 5-6 months. Mine started teething around 3-4 months and got their first tooth at 5 1/2- 6 months.
