  • My son was 2 months when the signs started. Drooling, fingers in mouth. 3 months, he was cranky and chewing on stuff. 4 months, he tooth popped out.

    Try a baltic amber teething necklace on him(they wear it, not chew on it)
    try wetting and freezing a washcloth to shew on
    try freezing breastmilk in a cube and put it in a mesh feeder to chew on
    Hylands teething tablets.

    I don't recommend orajel, tylenol or freezing teething rings. Orajel(can interfere with breathing, makes their gums hard and teething hurt worse) Tlenol(wrong pain med, if one is absolutely needed, try Mortin) frozen teethers (too cold on their gums and could cause damage)

She was cranky a lot chewing on anything she could put in her mouth like my fingers. Drowling like crazy. There's lots of stuff like that of yeah one big thing was her nose got all runny.

  • my son is 4 and half months and he's teething now, he's not eating as much, but in general he's pretty good. He's showing two white cap on his bottom gum and he always making that chewing movement and drooling A LOT. I bought one of those teething toys and put it in the fridge for him to chew on.
