  • no dont worry. my son went through the same thing and the same way.i am watching this 10 month old and he is teething real bad and screaming bloody murder. what i do is give him a frozen teething ring. he/she might have gas, fighting to stay awake, wants some mommy milk.ect. try everything you can think of. like i said dont worry. gl

  • My 3 month old has started this as well. It's normal for pre-teething & he may be especially drool-y as well. Most women I've talked to say that they can start at as young as 2 months, and teeth may not actually occur until 6-9 months. Each child is different. If you notice any other signs however, such as lack of apetite, fever, he seems especially lethargic etc check with your doctor

  • Don't use orajel! Read the article in The Stir about it!
