My son will be 5 months on the 2/10 and he is teething but he teeth are coming in on the side and not in the front like I thought that babies teeth were supposed to. Any thoughts to help ease my mind?

I thought my daghter was getting her teeth in the side too- I could actually feel them start to poke through. However, the doc told us that it was actually just the plate of her gums. Our doc said that most times when we think our little ones are teething somewhere other than the front- it is the actually gum plate. :)

my daughters is nearly 5months old and still no sign of teeth, but im thinking they wont be far off as she is drooling so much more now and likes to suck on my arm!

My daughter was 3 and half when her first tooth came in at the bottom and a few days later the second tooth at the bottom sprouted up.

hi - my son is 5 months and he has his 2 front bottom teeth. a friend's son was getting what looked like a tooth on the top right hand side but the nurse said it is actually a calcium deposit. apparently they can get calcium build up that looks like a little tooth. i would just keep an eye on it and wait for more to come. it's so exciting!!

My daughter was looking like her top canines were coming in because they were little bumps and she was slobering like crazy. So as course of habit I checked them. To my suprise, her bottom middle tooth broke through! So unexpected. She will be 5 months on the 16th

My son got his two fron teeth one day after the other when he was 14 weeks (7.5 weeks corrected age). I thought he was getting a tooth on the top left side a couple of weeks ago (he is now 20 weeks- 13.5 weeks corrected) but the pediatrician said he thought it was just the gum plate....

When i was doing some resarch on babies teething, from what i could see, the majority of babies first teeth are the two front bottom... and then next are usually the two front top!

I think my daughter is going to get some of her back teethe in before her front teeth. I can feel some raised bumps on the lower left side in the back. Plus, she is drooling like crazy and is always sucking on things! Any day now....

It's not the norm for them to come in from the sides, but that just makes your little one more unique!! : )

My babies 2 front bottom teeth came in right around when she was 4 months.

my daughter will be 5 months on the 13th and still has no teeth...she's working on them pretty hard though, i hope they soon poke through!

i know that my sister's eye teeth came in before the front ones did, don't worry about it, i'm sure your son's teeth will all come in eventually!!!! some babies just don't play by the same "rules" as most others do! :)
