4 month old teething?

my baby, who is now four months old (was 6 weeks premature) has started drooling alot lately and chews on her hands all day long. she has also started getting quite irritable lately which is unlike her. could she be teething? i have bought a homeopathic teething remedy called chamomilla millefolium comp. is it completely safe to use? the instructions say 1 to 3 drops in the mouth.

Your baby is definitely teething. I am not familiar with this teething remedy but you should speak to the pharmacist about its safety in babies of this age.

My son started drooling terribly at around 4 months and his first two teeth only appeared at 8 months! Were as my little girl got her first two teeth at 4 months exactly and the next 2 only appeared at 7 months.
