  • Yes. Mine started teething around then. He didn't cut the tooth at 3 months, but I have heard of it happening.

  • teething, not cutting. although it's possible for few, normally they don't cut teeth until about 5 months.

  • Yes. My son started at 10 weeks (remember they start teething long before the teeth actually push through). Some babies are even born with teeth! It's never too soon, really. You cam use Camilia drops by Hyland's, as they're generally considered safe, and they don't numb (which creates a choking hazard-Orajel), they just take the edge off the pain for them. Or you can go to Tylenol.

  • Yes, My god son has just hit the 3 month mark and he has just started to cut his first tooth! Poor lil guy. The best thing I reccomend is a lil bit of childrems MOTRIN. Talk to your doctor about the dose. And there are all kinds of new teethers on the market to help yout lil tyke!!!

  • Children's MOTRIN has been recalled. Infant's ADVIL is still available and should help with the inflammation. Just don't OD him

  • Rarely babies are BORN with a tooth so it could happen.

  • Yes, it's completely possible. Not what the average baby would be doing but it's possible :)
