Could my 15 week old baby be teething?

My 15 week old has just started not sleeping soundly through night... She usually goes to bed around 9 and wakes around 6 for a feeding then sleeps for a couple more hours. But... for the past week she has been waking up more frequently during the night, not crying as much as just making noises then she goes back to sleep on her own. She also has started drooling a bit and has been fussy more than usual. Her feeding have been less regular and she has been spitting up more than usual. ANY IDEAS???

  • Sure. It may take a couple months to acutally see a tooth but they are starting to grow in there possibly.

  • could possibly be teething. My son did the same thing at around 4 1/2 months, we couldn't see anything but our doc said that doesnt mean a tooth isnt starting to push down. he said the youngest he's seen a baby actually have a tooth come through was 3 1/2 months. so it's very possible.

  • A little early, but yes, sounds like teething. You might also want to look up the symptoms for acid reflux or GERD. I thought my youngest was teething from about 2 mo. and it ended up being Acid Reflux. There are medications that work wonders if that is what it is.
