Teething

Is it too early to think my 14 week old boy might be teething? I’ve noticed he’s become a lot more dribble over the last couple of days and today he’s been a little irritable and has been chomping down on his dummy and putting his teething toy in his mouth. He also chews his hands a lot more but I know that’s part o...

Also seems to want to be on the move all the time-legs always going!!I think she’s teething and know we are in the leap-anyone else in the same boat? X

Not potty trained yet?

Anyone else’s almost 3 year old not potty trained yet? Just posting this as it’s been the hardest thing so far of being a parent. I thought it was breastfeeding or the temper tantrums but potty training has me stumped!

Teething?

My little has gotten one tooth already but it didn't come in as a pair so we're still waiting on the second tooth. He periodically drools a ton and has recently started chewing on the nipples of his bottles as well as his clothes. Are these all signs of teething? What did your littles show as signs?
