Sweta Nagubandi

I haven t seen or heard off yet. let's wait for experts to answer

Actually my son is 2 mnths 14 days old...he is drooling n biting his lower lip also cranky n not taking feed properly..is this normal

Sheeba Vijesh

actually, some babies can actually be born with teeth Sweta Nagubandi, rare but happens... Amcrankiness, drooling, biting - babies can confuse us a lot... But it might be unrelated also. check if baby is colic....

rightly said Sheeba .. my mamu was born with teeth..  but teeth at 2 months ..can't say.

I go with Sheeba Vijesh there are a lot of cases that a baby is born with teeth. however in normal situations the process of teething starts at 2nd or the 3rd month but the teeth actually comes out by 7th or 8yh months onwards.http://www.healthline.com/health/parenting/baby-born-with-teeth

Am my baby is also biting her lower lips from 1and a half months...she used to drool a lot but she was born with deep arch and whitish gum...she cut a small tooth also on her right jawline...not the front one... check if ur baby's gums are white instead pink

Amreen

Amreen

my mom said teeth emerges on d front side of the gums not on sides...

Rakhi Puri (beautyofmommying)

her pediatric said any can come.....but check with his pediatric...it seems tooth cut to me... please suggest Dr.Shilpitha Shanthappa

Amreen

hmmm...okk will chk with his doc

Amreen

can i give pacifier to him...so that he dosent cry too much bcz of pain

Rakhi Puri (beautyofmommying)

you can but pacifiers are bad habit...there are chances of baby refusing breast milk later...more use of pacifiers can also spoil his jawline shape...in teething teethers are best option...you can try toy teether which he can chew from any side...I gave my girl mombella squirrel....

Amreen

thnx for clearing my query

Sheeba Vijesh

it looks like an emerging tooth, show your paediatrician for confirming. avoid pacifiers, it will be difficult to wean baby from that and can also cause orthodontic problems.

Dr. Shilpitha Shanthappa

hello Am...
i saw the pic- im guessing it myt be a gum mass..i dnt think it is a front emerging tooth...once consult dentist and also ur paedea...they may answer well...
