I'm a new mom with a 2 1/2 month old. My question is how early can babies get teeth?? Mary-Claire has all of a sudden starting slobbering and my mother-in-law thinks she's teething. Is it possible??? Any advice would be greatly appreciated!!!

My girls started drooling that early and the doctors told me it is the early signs of teething. They didn't cut their first teeth til about 6 months but my neice and nephew both cut their 1st at 4 months and they were showing the signs that early as well. Good luck!

Like Littleape, my wee one started slobbering around 2 months but didn't cut any teeth until 4 months. The drool didn't abate until around 12 months even though she cut all her teeth by 10 months. Drooling is just one of the early signs!!

There is a general pattern concerning the age and the order that the baby teeth are expected to erupt, as described in this baby teeth eruption chart (http://users.forthnet.gr/ath/abyss/dep1171.htm). But it is not really a rule that applies in all cases. Some babies start teething too early, others are late and others get their teeth in an unusual order. It is normal and you should not be much concerned about it.In some rare cases, a baby's first tooth is already visible at birth.
If your baby starts drooling, being nervous or starts biting to everything around, you will know that teething has started. You could find useful information and tips about symptoms and pain relief for teething babies here (http://users.forthnet.gr/ath/abyss/dep1405.htm).

babies can start teething as soon as 2 months...... or later my little guy is almost 6months now and has no teeth at all I think they we all come in at the same time.....

My daughter starting chewing on stuff at the same age, but didn't cut a tooth until 10 months...each kid will progress at their own pace in their own way. Just make sure you have a lot of good teething toys, and that there are not things available you wouldn't want chewed on.

My son is 5 months old and he started slobbering at around 2 - 3 months. He cut his bottom 2 at 4 months and continues to do so. I think his back molars are coming in before his top 2, has anyone seen this before? Thanks for any advice.
Toshia & baby Who
Also he wakes up in the middle of the night screaming bloody murder but he is still asleep. Is this normal teething or something different?
