  • Yes, it sounds like she is teething! Two of my 3 kids showed signs of teething at 3 months (lots of drooling, chewing etc.) but I could not see or feel anything until they were 5 months old. It can take a couple of months for them to come through so don't be surprised if you don't see/feel anything for a while. On the other hand, they can poke through at any time.

  • it could be a sign that her teeth are on the way. my son was doing the same at that age but he didnt get his 1st tooth until he was 10mths

  • Yeah, sounds like it. Drooling is the no. 1 symptom. Everyone will give you different stories, fevers, runny noses, fussing. It runs the gamet. My kids were late teethers, but they drooled forever.

  • Unfortunately, it seems like the entire first couple years of their little lives are spent teething! The drool is the sure son started with that right around 3 months old. But he got his teeth a lot earlier than most - he's 16 months old and already has 16 of his teeth. Good luck!

  • My DD starting doing that at about 3-4 months and was like a constant sprinkler....I thought for sure that her first tooth was coming "any day now". Well, "any day now" was almost 8 months old!!!
