Could my 3.5 month old be teething?

My son is 14 weeks old. He has been chewing on his bibs, cloth diapers, his fist, blankets and his pacifier. He even grabs a hold of his lower jaw and pulls, causing him to cry.

  • my son is 3 months and doing similar things... minus pulling on his jaw because I stop him from grabbing his mouth. He is teething I'm sure. You can give him a cold washcloth to chew on, a teething ring if he can hold onto it, some tylenol if he's in pain and cranky. Good luck!

  • I have seen babies born with teeth.

  • I remember when my dd was 3 or 4 months old. I was convinced she was teething, because she did everything you are describing. She didn't actually get a tooth until she was 11 months old and now at 14.5 months she only has 4 teeth.  But I think it is possible, My brother got his 1st tooth when he was 3 months.

  • Both my children started teething at 3 months but didn't get a tooth until 6 months.

    You've already gotten some great advice! Cold rang to chew on. teething ring, baby oragel (sp?), Infant tyenol if cranky & hurting.

  • Some babies are born with teeth so there's really no such things as 'teething early', that's more than likely the problem.
