    Yes. Especially for babies, when they are teething, they may excessive crying, whining and ear tugging and eye rubbing. Besides, some babies may even suffer fever, teething rash, excessive drooling, runny nose and increased reflux episodes etc. But not all child rubbing eyes a sign of teething. It may also caused by dry eyes, itchy eyes or eye infection etc. So, you'd better have a check what's causes the rubbing eyes of your child.

    No, little child's rubbing eyes is not the sign of teething. Your little child may have some eyes problems that make him feel not comfortable. I suggest you to observe the eyes of your child to see whether the eyes are dry. You'd better let him eat some food with vitamin C to moisture the eyes which could let him feel comfortable.
