    My LO is 11 weeks old and recently has been drooling constantly and chewing on his hand all day long.

    Is this normal?

    Anyone else LO like this?

    Matthew is, it's probably the start of teething. If your LO is fussy with it try some teething powders. But don't worry it's totally normal!

    Yup Isobelle is exactly the same. She even chews so hard she makes her hand red.

    Can they start teething this early?

    I wander if it has anything to do with his restless night last night as well. He slept from 7:00pm to 2:00am and was then up ever 1.5 hrs which really isnt like him. He didnt need a feed, just re-settling x

    Ive seen these powders. Sorry if this is a stupid question, but how on earth do you give powders to a baby?

    Babies can teeth at any time and to me it sounds like the start of teething, most mummies on here recommend anbesol, which i have just started using and i have to say, it works wonders.
    I also use ashton and parsons powder, but i believe that is being discontinued...
    You just have to buy gels etc and see what works for you LO.
    Hopefully your LO handles teething well... :flower:

    yep babies can teeth from any age really, even if it is rare. my HV came other day and said "ooo she is teething" because she was drooling so much lol!! but she dosent seem in any discomfort yet..

    apparently babies can be born with teeth...

    Isaac has been doing this for weeks. It's exploratory behavior, not necessarily teething.

    I can't remember why my mum said they wripped them out but he had no front teeth for years till his adult teeth came thru. They tried to tell my mum it was a calcium growth until she looked properly n told them they were defo teeth.

    Aw my babygirl suffers with colic already so if she's teethin aswell I feel so sorry for her :-( I suppose it could be gettin evrythin out the way early ha
