Tessa has been drooling a lot and sucking on everything, paci, fingers, my fingers, toys, etc. I felt her gums and they don't feel any different ... she's been a little extra fussy too. Gave her some tylenol last night and it helped her sleep ...
I thought the same thing when little man started to drool so much that I needed to keep bib on him. He's also trying to suck his thumb, which is new. I was also thinking he was an early teether until my baby update e-mail told me this is the time that their salivary glands develop.
I think all the FTMs on my other playroom asked the same thing. And all the BTDT moms said that generally nope, it's just drool time. It's rare for little newborns to get teeth- not impossible, but rare.
I actually asked Wyatt's ped about this last week. She said that it is possible, but it is hard to tell. She even told me that very rarely some infants are born with teeth already cutting! I never knew that was even possible. But she said the average is about 9 months for teething
My LO has just started drooling a bunch this week too. We are having a lot of outfit changes. It could be teething or if might not be, sometimes you don't know until you start seeing/ feeling the teeth come through.
An amber necklace lol. It's made from sap and releases succinic acid when warmed by the skin. Helps with pain relief. Not just for teething either, adults can wear them too.
The raw lighter colored ones work best. I got one from etsy and amazon. I know how we love amazon lol
