She is dribbling on and off ( not all the time) and she gets very upset sometimes and cries for ages like she is in pain but I can't find anything wrong with her. At these times, if you put your finger in her mouth she chews on it (not really interested in sucking it!) and moves it around her gums with her tongue. Her gums also feel very hard- but not sure if they always did as I never used to shovemy finger in her mouth! Obviously she is too little to have managed to get her hands under contorl yet, but when she does get her fist to her mouth she chews away with gay abandon!
Could she be teething, and if she is, what can i do to help her with the pain?
My 5 month old started teething at about 12 weeks, although we've still not got any teeth through, we were told by HV the teeth start moving round in the gums at about 12 weeks which can be painful. I found Dentinox teething gel helped.
