I have a 12-week old baby girl, Ella. She is 100% breastfed and is an excellent sleeper. I put her down between 6:30 & 7pm and typically, she doesn't wake until 7am. (On a side note, Daylight Savings is really putting a damper on my day - she wants to go down at 5:30 or so). I know I am very lucky that she sleeps well.

Anyway, over the past week, she is still sleeping well at night, but during the day is miserable. Drooling is in overdrive - she is constantly biting her fingers and I think I see a tooth on the bottom right through her gums. She does not have a fever. She is not the same baby I know and love. She is either napping or screaming or nursing, just not very happy when she is awake.

Do you think she could be teething this early?

Thanks for all the advice!
