    When does a baby normally go through teething? We have had a bad week with Aimee, she has been really grouchy and crying all day some days, she has been sucking her fist and dribbling loads for over a week & today we have noticed a little white mark on her gum which looks and feels like a tooth...?! :?

    She is only 9 weeks old, is this normal ? Im really suprised but feel better that now I know whats possibly wrong

    Ive seen babies at 9 months with no teeth so it wouldnt surprise me if she was getting them early. Only thing is you cant give her calpol which is a pisser.
    Mines was about 4 months I think.

    Ella has been dribbling loads and blowing bubbles and trying to cram her whole fist in her mouth lol but she has been really content and happy recently so i dont think she's teething, is drooling a sign of anythng else?? I heard the health visitor say it means there ready for solids because it contais an emzyme that hepls break down carbohydrates.

    Aaron has been teething since he was about 8 weeks old, they just don't want to come through! Somedays are better than others though! He's had the white marks for ages and dribbles and chews non stop! When I took him for his last set of jabs the nurse said to me those teeth are on their way he hasn't stopped chewing, that was nearly 2 months ago! :D

    We, and the nurse and the rest of the family think Jack is teething too!

    Lots of dribbles and fists in mouth....infact everything goes in his mouth at the moment...towel, my fist, toys :lol:

    I havent felt for any teeth or looked for white marks yet.

    He has also found his voice, constantly making some kind of noise.

    Someone gave me a tip on teething babies the other night.....

    Have a bottle of whiskey by your bed. When baby gets grizzly, rub some whisky on their gums! if that doesnt work, drink the rest yourself!!! :lol:
