Could be teeth, but it could be other stuff too.
Hand chewing is just fun when they realize they can do it and sometimes a sign of hunger. Excess drool can be the body starting to get ready for solids down the line. Grumpiness and night waking could be growth spurt, sickness, developmental...
For me it is hard to say until they actually get teeth. For us it's usually like "aha! That's why you were so fussy last week!" But then my kids have all been 10 months or older before getting chompers...

I think I read that you can expect to see extra drool around 3months with all babies, that's when their saliva glands start working better or something?
But I was just posting about this on the other thread. Ben is biting everything really hard, and really acts like he might be teething. Not ready! But then, his big brother always fooled us - we'd think he was teething for months before he actually got any teeth. Once he gets teeth, you'll know he was teething - that's the only way I could ever tell for sure.
