    A little dribble, a bit sooky and a little ear tugging. Nothing major.

    My lil girl is going through all of those things at the moment and she is only 15 weeks old. She's drooling alot, tugging her ears, has very red cheeks, is constantly grumpy and is always putting her fist or toys into her mouth and she has funny lil bumpy things on her bottom gums. Is it normal for her to start teething so early??? :-k

    Aidyn had low grade fevers for almost 2 months when he was first teething. Red cheeks, TONS of drool, hard gums, sometimes runny and acidic looking poos.

    Jennifer - it is certainly possible for her to be teething at that age, though it is considered to be early. My sons symptoms started at that age, but his first teeth didnt erupt until 22 weeks (I think?) It was a long and drawn out process, LOL.
    Best to check with your CHN or Dr to get a 2nd opinion if you are not sure...

    Yasin has started sucking on his gums/lips really hard. Is this likely to be a teething symptom? He's been a little grumpy and poohing more so I think we might have one on the way.

    Jacob starting chewing on everything in sight.....I think it was a combination of teething, plus exploration though. I'm not sure about the sucking, but I guess it is possible as every baby is different. He may be looking for a way to soothe them if they are a little bit sore. Since Jacob started cutting his third tooth (which then turned into cutting is fourth and fifth as well LOL), he also did a lot more poo's....

    Logan is almost 12 weeks old. He has been drooling a lot (the other day he drooled so much he soaked the front of his singlet, and that was after about 10mins :shock: ), he's been trying to chew and suck on his hands and he's been screaming and crying for no apparent reason, I have given him baby panadol some times and he calms down a bit. Does this mean he's teething? I asked an early childhood nurse and she didn't answer me.

    Melinda, it might and it might not. Usually they won't say that your bub is teething til they actually get a tooth! crazy.

    Milo was grizzly, drooling a lot, sleeping less during the day - still ok at night, harder to settle, more poo & less feeding more often.

    Aparently with b/f bubs, the sucking action can hurt when they're teething? Milo cut his first tooth yesterday, and has gone from 5 feeds/day to 6-7 in the past few days.

    Hi - Caitlin got her first two at eleven months without any warning.

    Alex is now 8.5 months and Friday and today did THE worst smelling poos - runny and with visible corn and peas (TMI). I don't know if he is teething or if he's sick ! He's a bit grumpy during the day but fine at night. Has had red cheeks and dribble for months. He does not have a temperature - what would a doctor say if there were no other signs of illness ?

    Grumpy. Red Cheeks. HEAPS of drool. Cuddly and sooky. Biting on everything she could get her hands on. Restless sleep.

    She's broken through her first tooth (a molar) at 4.5 months.

    my lil one is having pretty much all those symptoms.
    she is only a little over three months now and it started probably about a week ago.
    the nurse line suggested it might be gastro but she has not been vomiting or anything like that. her poos are really runny and greenish and alot more often.

    im worried about the green poo's but everything else seems normal.
    i have made an appointment with her doc for wednesday
    she is whingy now and then
    chews on her dummy and toys, teething rings etc.
    she does not have a temprature
    shes alot harder to settle during the day too and doesnt sleep for as long as she used to
    she occasionally screams for no apparent reason and is heaps clingy
    she salivates heaps to the point that her whole top is soaked within minutes!!
    she pushes away her bottle screaming and wont drink her milk sometimes even after only drinking half of it.
    normally she will drink her milk without a problem
    she munches on her hands every chance she gets. Its like she is trying to fit both her hands in her mouth!!
    oh and she has also got a slight reddish rash on both cheeks which came about a week ago
    sounds like she is teething to me... what do you think?
