Hello!Most of you may not know me, since I was a August due date so pretty much stayed there all my pregnancy..but having a July 30th baby, I find myself hovering between the two groups now '

Just wondering when your babies have started teething and whats the first signs to watch for? Is it painful for them from the start or are there warning signs? My son lately has been playing with the nipple inside his mouth from one side to another after only eating 2-3 oz (normally he eats 4-5), wondering if he's playing, bored, sleepy, or if it could be an early sign of teething and he's trying to comfort his gums?

I'm a FTM so I don't have too much experience with this. However, my son has also been doing that for the past month or so. Sometimes he puts the bottle nipple or pacifier in the corner of his mouth and chews on it. I thought he might be teething but his gums don't seem that hard and aren't turning white. I think it's just a new thing he discovered and he thinks it's fun, just like lately he's obsessed with putting his fists in his mouth even when he's not hungry.

Finn started drooling a lot more at 8-10 weeks old. That kind of came and went, but in the last few days he's started trying to chew on his hand and spent an hour gnawing on my finger last night. I can't feel them yet, so I don't think they've broken through, but they are definitely coming.

That's about how T is. Lots of chewing on fingers (his own and mine!) and more drooling for sure.

Babies explore the world through their mouths, so it can be hard to tell teething until the tooth comes through. It is totally natural for them to drool in anticipation of getting something in their mouth/having it in their mouth, to eat their hands because they've learned how to use them, ect.

Finger chewing (not sucking) and excessive drool are signs of teething. My lo started at 12 weeks. I tried sooo many teethers and my lo doesn't enjoy any of them. But I recently got teething mittens off etsy and he loves to chew on those!
