Michaela is definitely teething, even if it's just her teeth getting ready as they're not actually coming through yet. She keeps chewing her fist and she's drooling a lot.

I managed to get her a fridge teether which is for 2 months plus. Daniel loved his so I've been looking out for one but most of them are 3-4 months plus. She seems to like it, but only takes it if we hold it in her mouth for her! It's easy to do, just sterilise it, put it in the fridge for a bit, then it's ready to chew.

Anyone else purchased a teether yet - what kind? What else are you doing to combat tooth pain? Who else's babies appear to be teething early tho it is?

I got a Sophie the Giraffe teether at one of my showers so I'll be using that. Everyone raves about it.

My girls wore amber teething necklaces and never needed anything else. Hopefully Sarah will be the same way.

I think Taryn is starting to.... she's been chewing her hands & drooling & she wakes up from naps screaming, until she can get her hand to her mouth.

I meant to look at teethers while I was out today, but totally forgot all about it.
I DID however find something on pinterest (go figure) that may be of interest:
Mother-2-Mother.com - They are "momcicles" made from a pacifier, breastmilk & a baby bottle cap. Thought that was pretty neat.

My other children didn't get teeth until they were almost a year old. I'm hoping Pippa will follow suit.

Madeline just started chewing on her hand and drooling a bit this week. I was hoping she'dstart teething much later!! I need to buy a teether. She doesn't take a pacifier...so I hope she will use a teether.

I've got an amber anklet, but also Nuby rings in the fridge, and a Sophie He has no interest in the rings or Sophie yet but he's not really teething so we'll see what happens.

Sometimes I feel as though Summer is teething, others I think she's just being a baby. She does the hand to mouth thing a lot lately and TONS of drool/bubbles, but I don't see or feel much in there... I did purchase some teething rings and just ordered an amber necklace today

Adalyn drools and tries to get her hands in her mouth, but in no way do I believe she's teething. . . So I am not even bothering with teething stuff yet.

Likewise, Allyssa, but I have no idea what I'm doing. She does drool a lot and constantly at her hands. I read online those are two things to be expected at 2+months old as far as developing.

Yeah Emmett also drools a ton and is always sucking on his hand or chewing his fingers, but to me that's normal baby stuff and not teething.

For Lily we just had her amber necklace and the occasional hylands tablet. She never cared much for the frozen things. We have a couple Sophie's too.

I had picked up a kit with a bunch of baby needs in them and it came with a teether, maybe too.

❤ Big Thanks to Vicki, trishosaurus, & Shortcake for the great siggies of my kids! ❤

Hadley isn't teething and probably won't be for a while. My older two were 9 months old when they got their first tooth. Grayson, always my odd man out, was 3 months.
