Teething at 3 months! Help!

DD has been pulling and biting at me for about a week now. i took her to the dr today, and they confirmed she was teething. I thought so myself, but wasnt sure. Her gums are puffy and you can see the tiny teeth in there!! Anyways, shes still biting me badly. It was a real shock to thats shes teething, because shes still behind developmentally from being premature! So taking her off and telling her no does no good here. And i cannot deny her, shes had a terrible time gaining weight so far. What is a mama to do? She will chew on my finger, but nothing else. not a toy, or teether, or a binky. nada. But she seems to favor chewing on my breast!
Help me! This hurts, and i have noooo idea what to do

Ive resorted to giving jo hylands teething tablets a few times, not because shes chewing my breast but because she gets miserable. the only teether toy she likes is a doll similar to the love me knot doll, it's big enough and pliable enough that she can manipulate it with her whole hand, not just her fingers and gasp reflex so she's able to get it to her mouth

Re: Teething at 3 months! Help!

You should look into getting an amber teething necklace for your babe. My babe just cut his first two bottom teeth at 5 1/2 months and he had one or two semi-rough nights, but otherwise he's been handling it great. I got a necklace from a link I saw on here. If you want, I could give you the info so you could get it from the site I did.
