Yes: Teething at 3 months is a normal.
You can use teething rings and damp frozen wash clothes to help your child cope with the process of erupting the new teeth. Use the appropriate amount tylenol (acetaminophen) for severe teething pain. Avoid using medications that you rub on the gums b/c it only will last for 10 to 15 minutes and will not provide lasting relief.
