Maybe - my DS1 got his first tooth at about 4m

Could easily be. My Dad was born with teeth and DH teethed at six weeks!

(DS waited till a much more respectable six months - he was exactly the same age as I was - to the day - when his first tooth appeared!)

I think those teeth start rumbling from very early on. Now he's three months, you can try a bit of calpol and see if that cheers him up. Bloody marvellous stuff Calpol!

and also try the powders that you can get in the pharmacist... can not remember the name of them... homeoepathic remedy but works a treat...
