What age did your baby start teething?

Mine's crying when I try to feed him a bottle, but not with spoon feedings. He isn't running a temperature. I'm just trying to figure out if he's teething or starting to come down with something. At his four month check up ( a week ago), the doctor said he has white spots on his gums where his teeth will come in, but I don't feel anthing yet.

  • My first was 6 months my second was 3 months by the time he was 6 months old he had 6 teeth,
    He may have a tummy ache or an air bubble
    Maybe the doctor is correct give your baby either or both baby orgel and a cold wash cloth to chew on
