3 Month Old Has Two Teeth Coming In!!

My 3 1/2 month old son has been showing signs of cutting teeth for the past few weeks but over the weekend I noticed that one of the bottom two has actually come through (and it is sharp!). I can tell when he is in pain and administer the gel, pellets and baby motrin as needed. It seems to help for the most part. I guess my question is if there are any foods that are safe for him to chew on at this age? He has plenty of teething toys but he still has problems holding things and putting them in his mouth. I'd like to find something that he can chew on safely and hold on his own. I know he's still really little but he already pushes my hands away if he's got a bottle so he can feed himself and he just seems like he's in a hurry to grow up! Any suggestions are greatly appreciated and needed! Thanks :)

What can I do next?

He is way too young, for food. My son had teeth this early and the pediatrician still said no solids, before 6 months. Teeth don't really mean anything. It's his digestive system, that can't handle the food. I totally agree with the washcloths, that's what I gave my son.

I don't think I would give a 3 month old any solid foods. Formula or breastmilk is all they need til 6 mos.
Freeze some wet, quartered baby wash cloths in a ziplock and let him gnaw away on those!

Hi S.
His too young to chew on foods.
Would recommend this after 6 mths, chunks of carrotts or a chunk of cold cucumber.
Keep doing what your doing,pain relief and teething toys.
You can help him keep the teething toy in his mouth.

No solids, milk only. We didn't start our daughter out on baby food until the 6 month mark, per our pediatrician.

My 4 month old just cut his first two teeth both within a week. All of my kids liked the teething toys that I put in the fridge to keep cold and also a frozen wash cloth to chew on.

My daughter got her 1st tooth at 3 1/2 months. Dr. was shocked. She had all 20 (this includes her 2 year molars) by 18 months...so be prepared for them to come in fast & furious! Do not give him any solids...he is too young. Teeth do not mean his body or mind are ready for other food yet. Give him chew toys & other things meant for babies this young. We started our kids on solids (meaning jarred baby food) at 6 months & 5 months.

You can get one of those net chewy things in the baby feeding section at Target or BRU and put a frozen cube of breastmilk or formula into it.

THe frozen washcloth idea sounds good to me. When he's a little older and can take solids, frozen peas work well.
