So ladies Damien is just a day shy of one month old and is teething. Any other moms have babies born with teeth or super early signs of teeth? I don't know what to do for him he has been up crying on and off since 3 am. I feel horrible for him he just has seemed to get worse the last few days any advice? I think he is kinda young for most remedies so not sure what to do.

Are you positive it's teething?

It could be gas, colic, growth spurt, or just being cranky.

But my kiddo got her first 2 teeth at 10 or 11 weeks old. She was never a bad teether though. They just kinda came in without any fuss.

you can see the white bumps and they are sensitive to the touch. We noticed around a week ago its 1 on each side of his mouth I wish he wasn't he is already horrible sleeper and I just seem to be losing more and more teeth I will be calling his pedi today just wanted some remedies to help so he and I could both sleep.

What does you losing teeth have anything to do with anything?

Could it be thrush? That causes white bumps.

I was gonna say the same thing. My son got white spots on his gums when teething but no bumps.

I thought my baby who is 1 month and 2 days, was also teething.
She drools a lot, she tries to eat her fist, cries for about 18 hours a day, and I felt her gums and it seemed as if they were harder than when I checked when I first brought her home....but honestly like others said its probably colic, gas, growth spurt etc.



With that being said if you do pacifiers or are breastfeeding you should be established enough to use them now. stick a pacifier in the freezer for like 10mins and use that sort of like a cold teether. Looking at teethers they seem to be huge in proportion to a 1 month old so you may have trouble getting your baby to properly use one.

If your nursing, I noticed nursing helped DS teething pain. He started teething that early too. Unfortunately there's nothing you can do or give for it, just love. Try using your finger to massage his gums. It will help them poke through.

My oldest had a tooth come through at 1 month, it ended up going back into the gum though.
I had the same thing when I was a baby, erupted a tooth very early and it went back into the gum.



I was going to suggest putting a clean face washer in a bag, in the freezer til it's cold but if you use a pacifier then that's a better idea lol

I've heard teething necklaces work wonders. I've never used them, DD is only three months old and hasn't started teething yet, but they're all natural so I don't see why you couldn't use it for your LO.

I just saw this. DD started teething at about 6 weeks old. She got 2 teeth 9 days after she turned 4 months old and she was so grumpy. She was too young to do anything for and when I found out about teething necklaces a few months later I immediately ordered one. I do not regret that purchase it is awesome. She is 12 months old and has 13 teeth and 3 more on the way in and nothing except a slight case of diarrhea and a little extra clinginess during new tooth time. She got 4 molars at once and I didn't even realize it.
