  • YEP! My oldest had 7 teeth by 7 months. He got his first right at about 4 months too. Just dont use baby orajel! It's got something in it that hardens their gums up making it more difficult and painful next time. Try a clean frozen wash cloth or even frozen veggies or fruit (bannanas or something that when gummed is supper soft)

  • Yes! Mine had 4 teeth by 3 months and all her teeth by 8! I used frozen wash cloth, teething rings, and teething tablets. The teething tablets worked wonders when dd would get a set of 4 in within days of eachother.

  • Oh yeah. DD started teething at around 2.5 months. She got her first two teeth around 5 months, and then 2 more at a time after that ever couple of weeks to a month.

  • absoutely, my son started teething at 3 months. you can get most teething things at a baby area store. Walmart, Target or Babies R Us has them.
    good luck!
