Hi my daughter seems to have been teething forever (since she was 4 months), and still no tooth!!! She's 8 months this week!. Keep checking daily- when she lets me that is!!! Can't wait for them to start coming through- she seems to look really gummy now.
Hearing of babies cutting teeth at 4/5 months!!!

i agree, i think teething does seem to make them a bit poorly. my son didnt get any teeth until he was 10 or 11 months old and then they all suddenly came through but he was very ill with some of them - he was very snotty and chesty, constantly dribbling and had awfully mucusy poo and he has only ever had nappy rash as he got his teeth! then as soon as they were properly through everything cleared up in an instant. funny how it all works, eh?!
try bonjela for babies and we also got some ambusol antiseptic stuff from pharmacy you rub a bit over their gums and apparantly numbs it - seemed to take the edge off of teething for my son. hope this helps! xx
