If your baby refuses to cooperate run your clean fingers to feel if there are any swollen areas. If he is in fact teething, massaging over the gums can help relieve pain.
Teething is almost always accompanied by excessive drooling. While babies start to produce lots of saliva around this age to increase digestive power, it can also indicate teething.
Some babies get rashes all over their mouth, cheeks, and even diaper area. Keeping the mouth and cheeks dry from drool can help prevent rashes.
My mom says that babies pass loose stools while teething and there are a lot of moms on the internet that attest to this.
Teething is hard on babies. Seriously, they are in so much pain, and they can't tell you what's bothering them, so they end up being extremely sensitive and cranky.
Toys, fingers, your breasts (ouch!), you name it. Your babies will be gnawing onto everything like a little vampire.
