My son has been teething since he was 5 months old but guess what, no teeth yet. He continuously sucks on his two middle fingers. Does anyone have a clue as to when his teeth will come through?

  • Well my son is 4 months old and does the same thing. I asked his doctor and he said they can start teething 6 months before they get their first tooth. I hope this helps

  • Sucking on hus fingers does NOT mean he is teething! It means he need to suck and he evidently dosn't have a pacifier so he uses hi fingers instead! When he starts drooling a lot and chewing on toys (not sucking on them) he's probably teething!
