14 weeks. Could this be teething?

I know I should know with this being DC4 and everything... but can anyone please tell me if this sounds like the start of teething.

DS2 is just 14 weeks. He has recently started drooling constantly and prolifically at the same time as going off his milk a bit. He will drink the first 3oz or so but then arch his back and shake his head and generally refuse anymore milk until his next feed usually about 3hrs later.

He has had a runny nose the past couple of days, and been more than a bit of a grump especially when desperately trying to shove the whole of his fist into his little mouth.

If he was a few weeks older I wouldn't even give it a second thought. Does this sound like teething to you? Thanks

Sounds like teething to me. All the things you've mentioned point to it. They can teethe that young.

Yep, mine started at 9 weeks and gp agreed. They can be born with teeth remember.

yep mine all had 2 teeth by 19 weeks with DS3 having 2 appear at 15 weeks in the space of 24 hours... so yes possible. it may be that the bottle teet is hurting his gums where his tooth is coming? try a bit of calgel (its from 2 months onwards) before he feeds?
