Drooling. Crankiness. Could it be...Teeth?

  • Drooling. Egad. I like everything about babies but the drooling. My son seemed to experience extended drooling (months and months) and drool was everywhere. But it is a sign that your little one is starting the teething process?
  • Biting: Maybe you notice it while breastfeeding or she'll just nip at your hand while playing. It's not a mean move — your baby just likes the counterpressure on her sore gums.
  • Irritability: Some babies get super cranky and some may just act a little off.
  • Insomnia: Technically your baby won't get insomnia but you might because she may be up and down, up and down, all night long. Night wakefulness is common during teething.
  • Coughing: Not a lot, just a bit of a cough caused by excess saliva.
  • Chin rash: My son the massive drooler got this due to irritation from his skin always being wet. If you can keep up, it helps some to try and wipe off your baby's face throughout the day with a dry cloth.
  • Ouch: A look of pain on your baby's face is common because who likes a tooth shooting through his gum — it hurts. Usually it's the first teeth that hurt the worst and then either babies adjust or quit complaining because painful expressions are less common the further into teething you two get.
  • Ear pulling: My boy never did this unless he had an ear infection, but some babies do pull on their ears due to pain in their mouths.

These eight good signs that mean your baby might be teething. Many of these signals can indicate something else though. If you have lingering doubts that one of these is not caused by teething, call or see your baby's doctor.
