  • Usually this is a sign that teeth are getting ready to poke through.

  • no, no teeth coming thru at one month - white gums are generally a sign of low iron.

  • Babies can get teeth at any time, some are even born with them. Most get them between 4 and 7 months though. Are there any other white areas or redness in the mouth? Maybe thrush?

  • I would think thrush, especially if she is screaming. I think you usually would find it inside her cheeks and on the tounge though. Your best bet is to take her to the dr. in the morning. They will be able to help you. GL :)

  • Thrush is most likely what you are facing. It is very common and usually a doctor will give you a prescription via phone instead of having to do the full on visit. There is also something called gentile violet located at most drug stores. Just be careful because it turns everything purple. Also if you are breastfeeding you need to be treated as well.
