Teeth!

post #1 of 44
Thread Starter 
It's official: my daughter is the youngest teether I have ever known. At 15 weeks two teeth made their appearance. As much as I am delighted about the cute little buds errupting from her gums I was NOT ready to deal with the extra fussiness and OUCH! the biting. Oh well. Anyone else suffering from milestone sleep deprivation?

I'm suffering from sleep deprivation, but it may have just been gas. She did start rolling onto her back earlier in the week though!

I haven't seen any teeth but there is so much drool around here I have been wondering. Can't hardly hold the kid without a washcloth or a change of shirt.
Extra fussy here too...

A dubious honor,
Earliest Teether

Errr...congratulations?

dubious indeed!  my cousin was born with two teeth, so at least none of us had to deal with THAT.  holy crap, can you imagine?  my poor aunt.  unfortunately, she passed away two years ago, and I never thought to pick her brain about child-rearing before that.  I bet she would have had some good advice for you, talldarkeyes!

 Holy moly! Geez. Talldarkyes, If Griffin has my genetics regarding teething, its possible I might be right behind you!  My mom has informed me, because Griffin is drooling so much, that at 4 months I had 4 teeth and at 8 months I had 8 teeth...so we will see. As for sleep deprivation, not this mama. 

 

rf, holy crap indeed! Being born with teeth?! pfffff. ouch.

Whoa, talldarkeyes! 

 

C is teething for sure, but nothing popping up yet. She is only 11.5 weeks, though. I'd be happy to let you keep the "earliest teeth" title!

My oldest two got their first teeth before they were four months! Those little baby teeth are so cute! Love toothy grins.... Even when they're covered in drool!

Ruby drools like a St. Bernard so maybe she will pop some teeth soon.

How do you tell if it's teething? Iris is super fussy today and keeps rubbing her face on me, but I don't know if it's that or maybe a sinus or ear infection or what. I can't do anything right today though!

I honestly didnt realize it WAS teething until she was sucking on my finger the other day and I felt a tooth. With my dd1 and foster ds I never knew either. Extra fussiness with this one but she is a super fussy baby anyway so I just assumed we were having rougher days than usual. She did bite me a few times and refused to nap or nurse.

Surprisingly, now that the teeth are through she is nursing better than she has in months! She still fusses at the breast constantly but now she will occasionally calm down enough to get a good nurse in.

Oh the face rubbing usually means overtired for my babies.

I'm wondering if Noor is teething too. She's been super fussy, drooling and frantically trying to shove her fists in her mouth and making lip smacking noises which is new for her. I couldn't feel anything on her gums though. She's 13 weeks today.

I hate to take the title from you, but Fin's bottom two teeth broke the surface today. He was 13 weeks Friday. I am absolutely flabbergasted.

I relinquish the title with my condolences. I hope yours is not a biter like mine!

Not SO far. :(

I have a super early teether too! Wouldn't take any teether, other than his hands that is! I just recommend teething mittens in a post. They a such a life saver. I can actually put lo down for 20 minutes now!

Elliott's first tooth just cut today! 15 weeks on Saturday

post #18 of 44
We finally have a tooth! I discovered it in the library this morning, I might have yelled a little on accident... Luckily the library was empty and the librarian was happy too. Love a small town library.
Love that first new tooth too!!

Maybe now I'll get a few nights of sleep before the next one starts giving him fits.

so anyone else dealing with painful teething?  it seems like Oliver is getting a bunch at once right now, and things have gone from bad to worse in the last two or three days.  he hasn't eaten anything and has refused to nurse since about 6am today (so going on 8 hours).  he's had one small pee since 8am, and I'm wondering whether I should call his doctor...  he's finally asleep right now wrapped up skin-to-skin with me, so hopefully he'll feel better when he wakes and I can make a decision then.  I've given him a dose each of Tylenol and Motrin as well as some Orajel, and it doesn't seem like it's helping all that much.  I just feel so sorry for him since he's obviously in pain!  :(

Poor baby! Did you check to see if he has something stuck in his mouth, like a hair?

I pulled a dead stinkbug out of Rowan's mouth this morning. Gag.

Teething for us has been awful the last week. No sleep at all. I use chamomilla homeopathic for teething pain- it works pretty well and coffee cruda for the no sleeping and he's usually asleep within minutes of giving him a dose. You can find those at a health food store. I put catnip tincture on his gums- a few drops. I put it on my own gums to see what it would feel like and it makes them all tingly.

Chamomile tea is worth trying too. Rowan sort of can drink it but I give it to him on a spoon.

Hope your guy feels better!
