Could be teething, but more likely she's just exploring her world. When my son first started chewing his fingers and mine--I thought for sure he was teething. The pediatrician told me that a lot of parents mistake that for teething when in reality, that's just when babies start exploring. They put everything in their mouths, which in turn makes them drool like crazy.

Two months is kind of early for teething. Not saying it never happens, but usually don't. When my baby was that age, he only put his hands in his mouth when he was hungry.

It sounds like she is getting ready to teeth, have you looked in her mouth to see if you can see any white specks along her gumline?  My son had four teeth by the time he was four months he was early and his doctor really had no explanation for it, it just happened

Probably just trying out new things. Babies don't usually get teeth that early, but that's about the time they learn to what their mouth does.

I have heard the same but as a new mom I can honestly say that my son did not fuss at all, I was waiting for it and thank goodness it never came, I am a registered dental hygienist and aware of the signs the little ones will go thru so it blew my mind away when my son had nothing, except four little white spots two on the bottom and two on the top by the time he was four months old, it just made me go HMMMMMMM.

It really isn't too bad... just sometimes for now reason they cry out in pain.. but it quickly goes away... like Aiden will be chewing on his fingers and just scream... it starts to hurt after a while... we found a vibrating teether its awesome! and also you can wet a wash cloth and stick it in the freezer for a few minutes and that feels good to them. But fingers are their FAVORITE!
