Q.

Teething/Growth Spurt?

Hi,

I got a three month old baby, he doesnt seem to be himself lately. He is not sleeping as well as he normally does and is also not eating as well. He is always sucking his hands, is this normal?
Could he be teething as early as 3 months? he does not have a fever, but has all the signs of teething..

Regards

Yes,many babies start teething or rather start with the first signs of teething at 3 or 4 months, but the first teeth usually appear at around 6 months.
