It appears my 10 week old is getting a tooth. I can feel and see it through his gum and he's suddenly getting fussy (which is not like him at all!). Is this normal? This is my first baby so I'm feeling a little clueless. I thought teeth didn't come in until much later? I feel so bad because I can't imagine it feels good and yet I can't think of anything to give a little guy to help since he doesn't quite have the coordination to hold a teething ring or anything. He's been a bit ahead of the game developmentally since the beginning but I didn't expect this!

sure it's possible - some babies are even born with teeth! it make take him a few more weeks for it to push through the gum... my DD has been a bit earlier of a teether than DS, and she has been liking just chewing on my finger or hers. it's only since about 3.5 months that she's been able to hold to anything else to chew it.

Try Hylands Teething Tablets. They dissolve instantly in baby's mouth. DS likes them and they are way better than yucky Orajel. Some babies are a little ahead with the teething but I also know one girl who's son has about all teeth showing but none broke through yet. I can't even imagine what those little guys are going through.

my son began teething at 8 weeks and his first tooth broke through at 12weeks...he had 4 teeth by 4 months!<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/dizzy.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Dizzy">: I feel for you. I was not expecting that to happen either.<br><br>
we did cold wash cloths, hylands, gripe water and lots of nursing. Teething was rough for us with ds1. He had ALL of his teeth by 14 months so on the other hand it was nice to have it go fast. Hang in there!

Babies get teeth at all different times, and it has no relation to the speed of their other developmental milestones. Your little guy is probably teething. Good luck! It's no fun, whenever it happens.

Though my DD's first tooth didn't come through until 6 months, she began teething symptoms around this time (10 weeks), with lots of drool and chewing on her hands and me.<br><br>
For teething, we use Boiron brand "Camilia" homeopathic teething medicine. There are extra ingredients in the Hylands that I didn't want to give to my DD. This medicine is in a single dose liquid form, and doesn't taste like anything. It seems to work really well for us.

My DD1 was born with her bottom front tooth. She has all her teeth now and that one she was born with it the brightest most whitest one she has. We have funny pictures of her as a newborn with a tooth<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">
