Help me figure out if my DD is teething. I am a 1st time mom so this is all new to me, plus she is so young, she will be 4 months next week.
She is drooling up a storm (this has been going on for weeks though)
Constantly shoving her fists in her mouth for the last 2 weeks or so
These last few have been over the past week or so
Going from perfectly happy to totally miserable in seconds flat, you know the whole I'm laughing, I'm smiling, no, no, now I am sobbing.
Been extremely attatched to mama, screams if anyone else holds her, and even is whiny/crying when her Daddy holds her.
If you put your fingers in her mouth she bites on them, pretty hard I might add.
Her sleep is crap, waking up every 2 hours or so all night long.

So, is she teething? I don't see or feel any teeth under her gums yet. If she is, what can I do for her? She is too young to hold a teether or anything in her mouth yet.

Thanks mamas!

From what I read, 4 months is pretty average for first teeth. Those sound like teething behaviors. My DS is the same age and is also teething for the first time. Have chilled wet washcloths and hyland's teething tablets ready in case it gets bad.
