Teething??

Postby Emmo » Sun Mar 15, 2009 10:24 am

How do I know if my LO might be teething? HE's only 4 months old, but he's been fussy and likes to chew on things.

Mikey started this around 3 months old! He would constantly chew and drool on everything! His first tooth finally is making it's way through at 6 months old and he still drools and chews constantly!!! :)

leo is just barely 3 months and teething!! 8O

the pedi looked at his gums and said what he has might be a "floater tooth" - a tooth that kind of inches its way up to the gumline, then sinks back down, then inches up, then sinks back down - so while he is technically "teething" he probably won't have an actual tooth to show for it for a couple more months!

i also learned that when a baby teethes is genetic, so i asked my mom and mil to find our baby books and see when we cut our first teeth.

i didn't get one until 10 months (!) but dh was 5 months to the day, so looks like leo takes after his papa in that way :)

sounds like your l/o could def be teething!

I googled all the symptoms and was surprised to see that he pretty much has them all, lol. Probably gonna be doing it for a long time I guess since he's only four months.

My LO has been exhibiting all the classic signs of teething since he was about 3 months old. He is now 8 months old, the symptoms have gotten way worse, and there are still no signs of any teeth coming in yet. :roll:
