I still can’t believe it. But alas, it is true. My soon-to-be 4 month old is teething already!
It started a few weeks ago when I noticed excessive drool — just one of the tell-tale signs. This drool, accompanied by a fussy baby who kept stuffing his fist in his mouth was the giveaway. But I couldn’t believe it…I just thought it was WAYYY too early for the process to begin.
According to WebMD babies usually start teething at about 6 months, but it is apparently still completely normal for the process to begin as early as 3 months! Definitely news to me!!
Once I realized the inevitable was happening (and that my baby was growing more rapidly than I ever imagined) I went ahead and ordered a few teethers. Pretty soon I’ll be shopping for pull-ups. Tear.
So I’m curious, when did your little one start teething?
