Is my baby teething?

He's 12 weeks today, and for the last few days he's very clingy, dribbling ALOT and off his food, but then last night he was sooo hungry he had one 6oz bottle, and then almost another 6oz bottle within 20 mins! He fell asleep then woke up and went sick everywhere! He only seems happy when he's in someones arms and will not settle in his own crib :(

  • Could be- DS started at 10 weeks. I was like, REALLY??? Ug. They start teething way before teeth actually pop through. Hang in there, mama. You can try a frozen wet washcloth or Camilia drops. Orajel numbs their whole mouth, which can make them gag and choke.

  • That doesn't sound like teething really...more like a virus.

    Teething is often accompanied by drooling, runny nose, sometimes an ear infection, and general discomfort.

  • He could very well be, it is a long process, he is still a newborn and they need body contact a lot, hang in there mom!

  • does he drool a lot, or always in chewing motion? You can also touch his gum to see if it's hard usually the bottom front 2 comes up first
