Oh no...


Yesterday, Chris and I noticed all of the signs of a teething baby... but at 10 weeks!?!? We did a little research and, though it occurs in most babies around the age of 4-7 months, it CAN occur in as early as 10 week.

We have a winner!

The symptoms most likely to trouble a teether include:

Drooling... which can lead to a facial rash. (Check)
Irritability or fussiness (Double-check)
Biting behavior - putting fist in mouth (Check)
Refusing food (umm... not so much)
Sleep problems (CHECK!!!!)
Gum swelling and sensitivity (Yep... we see broken skin along the gum line) :(

My biggest clue was the change in the nappies! When it all of a sudden is runny and youre at the doctor fearing allsorts-its just teething!! So when it smells worse or is more often-its teething!!

Our son has been teething since 3 months..finally after 12 months, he had his first tooth. Now he is almost 15 months and he only has two teeth. They are coming in slowly..but he's handling like a champ

Lordy I can remember it all too well....our little one had 8, count em, 8!! come in at one time...all our BAby Doc would say, was, "ah, wish you guys the best in the next two months" LOL...for us, with the discomfort and waking up crying, (us) it was like Bella was a newborn all over again...we put (Dr. recommended) teething gel on her pacifier. Boy am I glad those days are over

But hey, on the bright side, maybe, just maybe, she will get em out early...

Best Wishes!
