I'm not a mother oooh but ehm. . . I have never heard where they give baby medicine to start teething. It's a natural process naa and most baby start teething between six and seven months.

Now if you are talking about drugs like teething powders and orajel to relieve the pain from teething, that's a different story all together.

Madam please relax yourself ok. Your baby is just 3months old. Some babies start growing teeth at 4months, some at 6months, some at 8months. Its never the same for baby A and baby B. If your baby doesn't start teething by 6 months, it doesn't mean that something is wrong with him.
My baby is 6months plus and he hasn't started teething at all but he has started standing and can comfortably stand on his own holding onto something.

Don't ever make the mistake of comparing your baby with another. Your baby will achieve all developmental milestones when he wants.

Why don't you subscribe to mother/ baby websites so they will be sending you weekly news letters of what to expect in your baby. From my observation, i have been following them since i was pregnant till date and they are always right 99.9% of the time. You can google babycentre, smartmomma, whattoexpect or just type the age of your baby in google search bar and you will get lots of results and all the info on your baby.

@ op i am not sure where you are located but i never gave my son anything for teething except his frozn ice cold toy to soothe the gums. I was told by a medical professional that medications such as baby ambusol can do more harm than good. Its a popular medication in Canada. The problem with the drug is that it works to well, it freezes the gums and can also make the tongue numb so it can fall back in teh through and block the airway. The best thing to do is to not medicate for teething issues. Dont worry about your baby when they need you they will let you know. Those little people are very good @ that. wink

Hmmnn! Wonders shall never end! You want to give teething medicine to a 3 month old? Does she or he have teeth? What exactly is the medicine for? Pls ehn, don't dull the baby, when he/she starts teething, use bonjela and rub into the gums with a clean finger. Give the baby a teething ring. All these Nigerian moms that don't want to learn good things just tales from daft ols women. I NEVER used an daft teething medicine on my kids and they have beautiful teeth. You no hear of teething medicine wey kill over 60 babies? Be warned!

D baby must not have teeth,,,,,,,, they begins to manifest symptoms of teething seen in their poo(bubbles) , irritability even when their is no colic........ Clinging to breast even done with feeding n even sleepy using it to sooth their gums........get relief when managed for teething, flatulence stomach medicine(grape water) and a little more attention..... For testing drugs their pack always say 2.5mls.....d truth is d baby's weight determine d dosage........... Kudos to all the mama in d house........ And yes teething drugs are good and useful when the right dosage is given kiss
