Is it possible that DS 9 weeks is teething?

Thanks Ent! I'll get some ibuprofen. Poor lamb was screaming all night last night. He's definitely got a tooth budding.

Geeks! Geeks! That was supposed to be gels. Damn you auto correct. smile

Dd1 started teething at exactly 9 weeks. Dd2 was about 11 weeks. Ibuprofen is really good for teething discomfort. The teething geeks only numb the gums and don't do anything for the pain in the jaw.

Thanks May. I know that little ones can be born with teeth but I suppose I just wanted to get it out there to find other opinions.

I made sure DP bought some suitable from birth wink

He has his 8 week check with gp next week (they're a little busy) so I'll ask about it then.

Yep, could well be - my friends baby was born with two teeth smile

Poor little one though - hope it settles down.

Maybe check with GP or HV, obviously check the age on the teething gel too (if your haven't already)

I've had the suspicion for over a week, so asked DP to pick up some teething gel.

DS is normally such a chilled baby, in fact, I hadn't heard a 'proper' cry from him until Tuesday, when he received his first inoculations and he screamed. He hasn't really stopped since.

I'm sure I can see his tooth buds and although he's been grumpy since Tuesday, I tried the teething gel about 20 mins ago after he woke up, suddenly, screaming.

As soon as I rubbed the gel on his bottom gum, he fell
straight back to sleep.

It seems like maybe I've answered my own question but he's only 9 weeks old (as I previously mentioned smile)
