Our DD is just about 9 months old, and for the last few days her very first teeth have started to come in. She's been rather cranky of late, and waking up a ridiculous amount of times at night, which I've associated with the pain that goes along with cutting her teeth.

What I'm unsure of is the other odd behaviour. Lately she slaps her own face, pulls at her hair, runs her hands roughly down her face, even pokes at her eyelids. She also rolls and rolls back and forth in bed at night--sometimes for hours. She isn't awake, just constantly changing positions. Plus she seems to have taken up talking/moaning/crying in her sleep.

Are these all signs of teething, or something else? I'm not really worried, but pretty perplexed...
