What exactly should the baby's gums look and feel like at 6 weeks? My LO's top gum has 2 VERY sharp little points coming through - they are clearly the points of teeth, but how can that be?? (Plus, she was a preemie - she's only 1 wk past her due date!) I noticed her drooling the other day and thought for a split second maybe she's teething, then realized I was crazy. Could she be?? Also, since I discovered those, I started feeling her lower gum and it has like a ridge that runs across it (left to right) and a little bit of soft gum above that - like the top edge can wiggle around back and forth all along the gum. Is that normal??
