Could someone tell me if it is possible that my 3month old ds could be teething already, today he has been sooooo cranky, his little nose has been running like a tap, he has been gnawing at his hands and really dribbling. The signs seem to be there but I just thought he was too young to be teething now??

Many thanks.

Hi! Could be, I gather that its not unheard of for a baby to be born with a tooth. He might be teething but it might be intermittant and the tooth might not appear for ages yet
I think with teething, anything is normal!

KathH - - did she have a normal birth or c-sect?? (Tears to my eyes !!)

So, thanks ladies, sounds like he could be teething then, I suppose I won't really know until his tooth appears, are there any other signs that will help me to know and what can I do to soothe him??
