My little boy is 7 months old and has yet to pop any teeth! It's driving me nuts cause I know his gums are bothering him because He bites anything he can get his tiny hands on plus he's drooling like CRAZY! His gums are even swollen and have been for the last month but STILL NO TEETH! What do I do?

In the same situation with our 7 month old daughter, but she's been biting and drooling a lot since she was about 3 months old. We give her tylenol at night sometimes because that seems to be when it bothers her most. I've been freezing one of her burp cloths for her to chew on too and she seems to like that better than any of the teethers. It also seems to ease some of her discomfort. Her pediatrician said we just have to wait it out till they come in.

My 8 month daughter has just her two bottom teeth. My son got his bottom teeth at 6 months old. Some babies are born with teeth and some don't get them til one year. Once my son got his two bottom teeth, all the rest came barreling in! Good luck with teething!
