My little boy is almost 7 monthes old and he has all the signs of teething except for his gums are smooth. He started drooling more and more around 2 monthes old and every body told me he was teething then, but still nothing! He gets fussy and chews on things and I give him teething tablets and it calms him down. So that makes me think he is teething, What do you think?
It sounds like he is teething. It comes in several stages. Have you noticed any swelling or changes in color? Orajel is said to make the gums tuff and harder for the teeth to come thru. My daughter like the orajel gum scruber. You wear it on your finger and brush the gums/teeth with it. I would also do the teething tablets to help calm her. As you know some babies chew on things because they are still hungry. He may have hit a growth spurt and wants more to eat. Also, we used some of the puff/poofs and pinwheels on the baby food isle. They disolve quickly but our lo liked chewing on them. Just do a little research on your teething tablets. They were recalled not to long ago. I have seen them back out in the stores but just in case. We never had any problems with ours but some parents did. Good Luck.
We have tried that and he is not a big fan! He usally throws it down and crawls away. LOL.
Thats great we will have to try that! Thank you!!
I hope so!!
Noah started teething around 3 months and just like your lil one his gums was smooth. He just now has a tooth that has broke thru the gums and he will be 10 months on the 15th. I massaged his gums with a finger brush, gave him teething tablets and the frozing teethers. Another thing he enjoyed was a little silicone ring made by nuby it had small brush like bristles on one end and nubs on the ring part and was easy for him to hold. He would go to town on that one. Good luck, I know there was a lot of nights he was miserable and it still hits him on some!
Thanks so much! I guess im just being impatient. I will start using the tooth brush he will probley like that.
Noah actually really likes it. I put a little bit of the baby toothpaste on the tip and when he sees me with it on my finger he opens his mouth up and waits for momma (kinda like a baby bird...lol) Good habit to start with them for brushing their teeth also!!! I was also stressing about it but turns out everything was fine!! So good luck
Thanks so much!
