What are the symptoms of teething?

I think my son is about to start teething even though he is really young. What are the symptoms that show before the teeth show?

  • CRANKY
    BAD DIAPERS
    DROOLING
    FEVER
    CHAFFING AROUND THE MOUTH (FROM THE DROOL USUALLY)
    IRRITABLE
    CLINGY (SOME BABIES GET THAT WAY)
    BITING ON THINGS
    WHITE GUMS WHERE IT"LL BREAK THRU
    SOMETIMES THEY DEVELOP AN EAR INFECTION WHILE THEY ARE TEETHING SO KEEP AN EYE OUT AND MAKE SURE THEY AREN'T TUGGING ON THEM.

  • That last answer pretty much covers it. solutions would be the numbsit, oragell, etc. I personally used cold wet rags for them to chew on and wiskey. Hes whiskey. Just put some one your finger and rub the gums with it. It works better than anything on the market and better than vanilla. No it is not illegal and it won't get them drunk. It works.
