My son is 10 months and has 8 teeth and 2 more about to break. When he was first born I looked at his gums and said they are coming early. and when he had a check up the doctor said the same thing.

my son started teething at 2 1/2 months had 10 teeth by 9 months, and it slowed down a bit when the molars started coming. By 17 months all his teeth were in. so yeah, it is totally normal for young babies to have many teeth.

My son was the same way, he just turned 1 and is getting his bottom two molars now! These are the worst ones yet to come in :(

My son is almost 10 months old and he has 8 teeth, the top four and the bottom four middle ones.  He got 4 in one month, and had 6 teeth at 8 months!  It's great for trying new foods he can chew most things!

my son is 9 months old with 6 teeth. 3 of them came in one week. You just feel so bad for them because they are so grumpy. But I think it is pretty normal. Every baby is different. Some babies are born with teeth.

Average age of eruption of first tooth is four months.  At one year the average is all eight front teeth and four molars ( leaving the baby canines or eye teeth and four more molars to erupt).  By two the average is all 20 primary teeth are erupted.  There is wide variablility.  Sounds like your kid is very average for tooth eruption.  I am a dentist, we get these questions all the time.

By the time my daughter was one, she had all her teeth. At times she would have four at a time come out, especially some of the bigger ones. It was tough at times as she felt crappy but now she is one and it appears all done for the moment.

My 20month old has had close to 8 teeth by 9 months old. My 8month old has 5 teeth and 3 more coming in. When I was 5 weeks old my mom said that is when I got my first tooth.

My oldest son had had first two teeth at 10 weeks old. So he also had a mouth full at 9 months. The only problem we had was it hurt while he had to learn to nurse with teeth but he got over that quickly. otherwise it was really nice cause he could actually chew real food!
