Iago was born on the 27th of February, so he is not the oldest baby here by any means. I'm hoping someone can help or sympathize.

We've got drooling
We've got hand chewing
We've got a bit of grumpiness
We've got extra night wakes

Is this teething? I can see white through his gums, but no swelling that I can tell. I feel bad for my baby!

Ooh, yuck. Could be! But I'm no help...my first didn't get teeth until almost her first birthday, so I'll be totally shocked if this one gets them early.

Could be reflux -- can make them drool and want to nurse more often. Have you changed something in your diet?

Hmm, change in my diet? I eat pretty much everything and everything. Can't think of anything that would stand out. Lying down doesn't bug him at all. Isn't that a main sign of reflux?

He really seems like he wants to chew something. Teething scares me as I'm sure I'll get nipped in the process.

Malachi is chewing on EVERYTHING. Don't know if it is teeth or not. We had the interrupted sleep and there is a ton of drool. He did just start talking a bunch more, spitting with his tongue, and almost rolling all the way over. I am guessing for us it is a combination of learning new things and exploring his world orally. He does really like to suck his thumb right before a poop...and I have had to cut dairy out of my diet because Malachi seemed to be sensitive to it. He hadn't seemed bothered by it and then was extra fussy, problems with poops, and more reflux when I had dairy, sigh. First teeth supposedly take a long time to come in, so maybe the long process is getting started?

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...

Ditto pretty much all of this. DS chewed started chewing on his hands around 4 months and didn't get any teeth until 12 months. DD has pretty much been drooling since birth, very odd...but Dr said it's okay. Anyway, I'd be surprised if it was from her getting any teeth.

tziporah was born on 21st feb (we weren't expecting her until late march, hence why i'm usually in the march DDC!)... anyway, i apparently got teeth at 3 months...

she has started doing the hand chewing and extra drooling, and on our extra-fussy-without-apparent-cause days, i too wonder if we're headed down the same path. but i think that she is just starting to explore things with her mouth more, as everything that goes near it is shoved in and gummed on for a bit. she may end up with teeth earlier than average, but it doesn't "feel" like teething yet.

DD started drooling at about 3 months, and no teeth until 10.5 months.

DS is also doing all the stuff you mention, but based on DD, I don't expect any teeth for months.

I hope.

We've got teeth. DS was born March 1st, and we saw white spots on his gums at 6 weeks. He started drooling and gnawing his hand around that time too. Now at 11 weeks he's got one tooth that has just cut through, and he's working on another.

My other two didn't get teeth until much later.

This is all so interesting, watching him grow. I don't know when those teeth will pop through, but I'll be watching.

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.

So these babies are nothing but tricky! I wanted to try some homeopathic stuff for teething, but I guess I'll never know if he is actually teething until a tooth pops through his gums. Is that how it goes? Aysh!
