    Hey all, I know it's hard to tell and every baby is different but I'm just so excited and keep checking if his teeth are coming through yet...

    He's been teething since he was about 8 weeks and is now 14 weeks!
    Here are a couple pictures of his little teethies you can see under his gums (but it was really hard to get good pictures so it might be a bit hard to tell....)

    How long do you reckon it'll be before his teeth will cut??

    Ella have looked like that for quite a while. Keep your eye out for white just under the skin. I keep looking every week or so but nothing yet.

    It's kinda white under the skin, just a bit hard to see in the pictures... But I take it it might still be a while then?!

    From the pictures they look how most babies gums look at your babies age, when theyre just about to come through they'll have a white line of the top of the tooth, it's hard to describe but it'll be quite obvious x

    Could be a few weeks yet but my daughter also started teething early at 10 weeks and had the first two appear by 4 mths. Yesterday the 5th came through:wacko:

    I promise you it gets easier though! The first two were hell!

    You are so lucky you get a good look at your LO's gums. Everytime I try your ladyship has her tongue out too!

    Skye's gums looked like that since she was a few weeks old, her first two teeth (bottom ones) cut through at 9 months.

    Could be a while!

    Our LO's looks the same. I can see tiny white circles right under gum. I will be stalking this thread to see what happens.

    Yeah she's been drooling a lot lately, and fussy too!
    When she was born I saw 2 front tooth under her gum and midwife said it was just her gums ?

    My LO's gums looked like that from about 10 weeks. From about 12 weeks he was constantly chewing on his hands or anything he could get his hands on, lol and always drooling. He's 6 and a half months old now and he cut his first 2 teeth about 2 weeks ago ..so it could take some time yet :)

    Same here! In my experience they can be like that for ages, we knew they were finally pushing through when LO had a few whiny days and started rubbing has hands on his mouth (like he does with his eyes when tired) and blowing raspberries. Think his gums were tingling. Then a good few nights of restless sleep, then they poked thru the gums and he was crabby for another couple of days before getting over it.
