I think my baby has started teething. His symptoms are irritable, chewing everything, dribbling loads, slightly red cheeks, more dirty nappies.

Would you say this is teething? As he is still young?

If so then what would you suggest to help?

How old is your baby? DD got teeth early on, I used paracetamol and dentinox. As soon as she was old enough she had ibuprofen too.

He's 10 weeks old. Really didn't think he would start teething so early!!
How old do they have to be for ibuprofen

Sounds like teething. Some babies are born with teeth. Mam have a teether for very sound babies.

Are the teethers any good. I've got some icy bite ones you put in the fridge?

Yes as my DD can hold them herself. She also uses links too.

One of mine got his first tooth at 15 weeks. I got my first at 9 weeks so it's entirely possible he might have one about to pop through.

Sounds normal, it can take a while to come up properly though. We used teething powder which was pretty good (Dentinox I think) if you are breast feeding you can freeze some milk to make a little ice cube lolly which will help numb the pain.

Just be aware that the earlier they get teeth the earlier they lose them DD started losing hers before she was 4.
