could be teething, or he could just have found his hands.. babies put everything in their mouths because their mouths are the most sensitive part of their body.
I would look for other signs of teething though.. such as drool (as said before),swollen gums, being fussy, eating less, pink cheeks and some people say they can get a fever.. some say no fever. IDK.

[QUOTE=holsx;745557]yeh hes dribbling loads. Teethin at 7 weeks?[/QUO yeah i know it sounds early, but it seems to be that way these days. alexa started teething at 7 or 8 weeks. just wait until the crankiness sets in with the teething! lol

Was told by pediatrician that chewing on fist is not always teething it could mean he is selfsoothing himself when he/she feel overstimulated.
