my daughter was born with 1. our pediatrician told us to get it pulled because it was not rooted in properly. Babies apparently can be born with 2 differnt types of teeth, rooted and non rooted. ask your pediatrician what you should do

I have a similar story to tell. I was also born with front two teeth and so was my son. I like ur reasoning of good intake of calcium by the mother at the time of child birth. do not hesitate to share if you find a link with some other inherited characters and having teeth by birth.
I am a geneticist and would be interested in working on such genetic associations.

Yes, I have... Can't really add anything to my knowledge. My first child had teeth by 4 months. I wouldn't be overly concerned about it . He will certainly go to the dentist earlier than most. As others have already said it will be a challenge if you are breast feeding.

They're called "milk teeth", and it's not a bad thing. In fact, it's a sign that your baby had plenty of calcium in utero, very important.
I know all this because I was born with "milk teeth", and I would hear my Mom mention it my whole life. :)
Bad news is that breastfeeding, while definitely not impossible, might be a bit challenging. Good news, since there's nothing wrong with your baby and his/her health is not the issue, those are two teeth that she won't have to cut later!! Enjoy your new baby!

yes, ive heard of it, ive heard of it quite a bit!some babys can be born with a full set! dont worry! its just important you get it checked because some teeth are at risk of falling out and the baby swallowing and choking on the teeth, so they may need to be pulled. Dont panic tho, your baby will be fine! i was paranoid my baby didnt have any teeth.. he only got his first thru at 11 months old. Just go to your doctor and ask for a referal to a pead. or a dentist... they will no which one. =)

I agree with everyone else....discuss your concerns with your physician, however it doesn't appear to be anything major alarming? Either way, love your baby for his/her uniqueness, and don't let the baby feel as though something is wrong with him/her! Who knows....down the road it may be a benefit or blessing of some kind!!

Our youngest daughter was not born with teeth. However she did not get the adult teeth on either side of her 2 front teeth. Long story, BUT talk to your health care professional to see if these are "Baby" teeth or "Adult" teeth. A friends daughter was born with no teeth BUT when they did come in she only got ONE SET OF TEETH. Hope this helps.
