  • my son started drooling a lot about a month ago and he will be 4 months next week. if she is trying to suck on her hands and it sounds like she is choking on them, get a teething toy but also go get orajel and infant pain reliever. if she's fussing and you've tried everything thats where the pain reliever and orajel comes into play.

  • My son started drooling a lot when he hit 2 months. It seemed to have really came out of no where. I noticed 2 white spots on his lower gums the day he was born, but they've never looked swollen. I've never seen a teething pacifier so I don't know the difference between that and a regular one but could it be the shape she likes better? Ive heard of babies teething really earlier and for months before actual teeth pop through so that may just be the case but I'd just be sure before giving her any meds for it. You don't want to give it to her if she doesn't need it, especially when she's still so young!

  • My son is 3 months old. He has a bottom tooth on the left comeing in. I noticed he was rubbing his tongue over the area and drooling a lot. He will get fussy and u can tell its hurting him. I am not a big fan of medicine, but i would rather give him some rather than him be miserable. I tried the teething ring, but he didnt really seem to interested in it. If it helps your baby without having to give her medicine thats good! I havent noticed any swelling you might want to ask your pediatrician about that.
