:D I've heard of babies born with teeth, and feel for those mom's.
Don't forget that teeth are working their way up through the gums as well, which is painful. I know that with each of our kiddos, there would be weeks where you would see the white bump below the gum, but it wouldn't break through. MANY sleepless nights walking with a poor kiddo with no relief.
OraJel and Motrin are my friends at these times. A bib will help in catching the drool. Cold washcloths, and anything rubbery, or vibrates (we have a vibrating teething star that each of my kids have LOVED).
Good luck, and I hope your baby has an easier time with it than mine. :D
