My four-month-old son had the (cutest) rosy cheeks, was drooling like a fountain and was trying to chew on everything he came in contact with despite his lack of hand-to-mouth coordination.

Even though I knew these signs meant he was teething, the doctor assured me he wasn’t old enough for his first teeth to be coming in. But the doctor doesn’t spend anywhere near as much time observing him as I do, so he didn’t have anywhere near as much information as I did. I stocked up on teething remedies anyway.

Just like I knew teething pain was about to descend on our household any day, imagine knowing if your members will like your newest digital offering even before it’s available to them.
