Teething?

Haha probably a sillly question, but when did your little ones start teething? It seems like Carsyn is starting to now( has to wear a bib all day now because drooling has gotten so bad, his temp spikes up the other day for a few hours, constantly wants to chew on your finger or toys or anything, and chew, not suck, has been super fussy for no reason, not wanting to sleep much). One of my brother in laws just turned one in September but we can't remember when he started.

There's a huge range of normal. I have a cousin whose baby is just 4 1/2 months ... baby has 2 teeth. My DD#1 got her first tooth on her 6 mos birthday. My DD#2 didn't get her first until 8-9 mos. My nephew got his first tooth at 8 mos. And my DH's sister didn't get any teeth until she was 13 months old.

So it's certainly possible teething is beginning in earnest. But it's also possible that it could be awhile.

Ya he isn't sucking on things, he is gumming them, and he'll get fussy and nothing makes it better

I agree that there is a huge norm with this...both of my first two didn't get their first teeth until they were at least 9 months old, but my nephew got his first at 5. It's kind of hard to tell, though, because my friend's baby started gumming and drooling like crazy at 2 months old and still didn't cut his first tooth until he was about 7 months, I think. Silly babies.

I think Faizan is starting too as well. He gnaws on everything, drools like no ones business. No fever (thankfully) but when he nurses he will "bite" hard down on my nipple and PULL and get this HUGE grin on his face and laugh!!!
My oldest ds started around 2 1/2 months and it went on for months until they came through.

Ya that's what it seems to be with Carsyn. Alot of the times with his bottle he'll pull it to the side of his mouth and just chew on it
