Teething already?

Baby girl is about 2.5 months old and I could SWEAR she is trying to cut her first teeth.  She's drooling like crazy, wants to nurse non-stop, and tries to chew on just about everything she sees.  She's also SO cranky.  Could it be teething or is it just way too early for that?

Thanks so much for your feedback!  It was true- she was teething and her first point came through last week.  Now I'm terrified she'll bite while nursing... but that's a whole new concern.  Ha!

It certainly does sound like she could be cutting her first tooth!  Typically the first tooth comes in between 3-4  months but every child is different!  My youngest cut his when he was two months old- I was shocked!  Here's some information from iVillage about teething- everything from what to expect, what teeth will appear first, how you can help relieve the pain, OTC products, and teething products we love. 

Hang in there and let us know when that first little tooth appears!
