both mine started teething at this time. Atticus (11 mo) just popped molars through in the last couple days. Sawyer (now 4) had ALL his teeth by 15 months! early teething can be rough! boiron homeopathic teething drops have worked best for us...good luck!
My LO is also behaving this way... A pediatric nurse told me that babies can teethe anywhere from birth (some babies are born with teeth, I was told!) until way into toddlerhood... Thanks for the rec on the teething drops, soybeansmama!
My son was teething at 9 weeks also... it comes and goes...
We used Hylands Teething gel, which my husband swears by. I'm not so sure it worked. I think by the time we ended up giving it to ds, he was so tired that he would have fallen asleep regardless of the gel. We now have the teething tablets, but haven't tried them yet.
Come to think of it though, she hasn't done it for a few days. Maybe it was something to do with the cold she had? She's only recently 'discovered' her hands; maybe she was just getting carried away with excitement at their existence?
If decomposition persists please see your necromancer.
I didn't do much of anything, just gave them toys (or even my finger) to gnaw on. Sometimes I'd use some Hyland's teething gel, though I don't think it actually does anything.
DS, 10/07. Allergies: peanut, egg, wheat. We've added dairy back in. And taken it back out again. It causes sandpaper skin with itchy patches and thrashing during sleep. Due w/ #2 late April, 2012.
I am pumping/feeding to let my nipples heal. He took 3oz this morning, so I tried 1 more oz, but all he did was keep biting the nipple. And did I mention he's crying a lot more than normal??
