Early teething signs?

          My son is only 7 weeks old and seems to already be showing signs of teething, such as drooling, unusual fussiness, and most of all gnawing on things like his fingers, our fingers, and anything that can get near his mouth. We weren't sure what it was at first, but after looking up his symptoms on several different websites, I feel that this is the conclusion. It was between teething and a tummy ache. He has also been burping excessively, hours after every meal. The only thing with that though was he only became fussy during the day, but would sleep great throughout the night, with only two or three feedings needed. During the day he would fall asleep in our arms only to wake up the instant you set him down. From there on he would cry and fuss for no apparent reason until he tired himself out and fell asleep again. I ruled out a tummy ache because I feel that if that were the case it would go on through out the night as well, but lucky for me it doesn't. He has his 2 month well-baby appointment soon, so if it keeps up then we will ask the pediatrician.
