I was wondering the same thing about JT. He has the white spot where it looks like a tooth and he has been chewing on his fingers even when he isn't hungry. I have heard of babies getting teeth early so it is possible.
I'm no expert but from what I hear, it's very unlikely... it's just a sucking reflex, a way to let us know that the baby's hungry again!
mine does the same... I give him the binky and he feels much better after...
I don't know, but my LO is drooling like crazy and constantly gnawing on his fingers and pacifier instead of sucking and I'm wondering the same thing. On his bottom gum I also see this little white "thing". Beats me, I guess we'll find out soon..
Most babies get white bumps on their gums and it doesn't mean a tooth is popping through. They are just little cysts. My first son had those at this age and he didnt get teeth until he was about 9 months old.
My little one will be 3 months next week and I noticed a white spot yesterday and she was more fussier than usual. It feels really hard so I'm guessing she's teething especially as it s more common at 3 months than for a 6 week old. There are cases where babies have been borth with a tooth!!!!! Wierd but true. Can't imagine my baby at birth with a tooth, seems too wierd for me.
Grose is right - I asked my pediatrician about some white bumps in my baby's mouth and she said they are little cysts and will disappear. I think she called them Epstein's pearls. So if your baby is only 8 or so weeks old chances are she/he isnt getting teeth yet.
So JT's pediatrician said that JT is teething but it could take up to 6 to 8 months for the first tooth to show up.
Just want to confirm that my little one has a tooth emerging. And that at 12 weeks of age!!!!
