  • My 1mth old is doing the same,wt i do is see if his diaper needs to be changed or if his belly is hard that means he is having some #2 problems,or also could be that he is hungry 9out of 10 when mine fusses its bc he wants more formula!

  • she has a knot on her bottom gum and there is a white spot on it do you know what that might be?

  • it isn't impossible to teeth that early but if there is a lot of droll and trying to shove his whole fist into his mouth that usually means teething if he doesn't have those signs then probably no teeth for awhile also babies usually get cold like symptoms when they start to teeth

  • I have five kids...from 27yrs to 7yrs. Teething is a long process as well as they can get their teeth in at an early age. The soonest I saw a tooth (felt it really cause I was breast feeding) was 3 months. :)

  • It is very possible, some children do it early at a time, what i did with my daughter is i froze her passy (if you use one) and if not, get a rag wet, put it in the freezer and leave it for atleast 1 hour, and have the baby suck on it, it will help the pain, my opinon is not to use the baby orijel because its been known to make the gums tougher for the teeth to break through, and cause more pain, bt that is simply my opinon you don't have to take it :) hope all goes well

  • Could be. My son cut his first two teeth at 4 months.

  • it is possible for teething. Could be gas problems too or hunger.
