could he be teething?

My son is only 2 1/2 months but recently hes been "biting" on his hands and the nipples on his bottles. Both sides of our family have said some have teethed early but this early?

  • yep, some babies can get teeth that early..some are even born with them. but those have to be removed. but it does sound like he might be teething. if he runs a fever, drooling, whinny, chewing on anything.those are signs too.

  • My guy is approaching two months old and is also into gnawing on his hands right now...drooling, too. I'm watching for teeth, but so far, nothing!
