Ok I know that there is a certain order for babies to get there teeth. My daughter is almost a year old in bout 2weeks. She got her 1st bottom tooth when she was 10mths old then she got her 2nd bottom tooth a week later. So I have been waiting for her to get her top 2 middle teeth. Well this morning when she fell asleep for her nap on me I noticed that she has a 3rd tooth. But its not in the middle of her top its the one on the left side that is next to the middle left one. Has anyone else had there babies teeth not come in the right order? Is this uncommon?

My daughter got her teeth in a weird order too. She got the bottom 2 at 6 months. The top side tooth at 7 months and the other top side tooth and 2 front teeth at the same time at almost 8 months. I asked the doctor about it and she said that they is a general order but as long as they come in the order doesn't matter all that much.

Like all the pp said all children are different. There is a 'typical' pattern but its not that unusual to have a baby that gets teeth in a different order. The typical pattern goes bottom central incisors (middle teeth), 4 top incisors, bottom lateral incisors, 1st year molars, canines, 2nd year molars. Usually baby teeth will fall out the same way they grew in.

hi ya... Every child is unique! Their teeth will come when their ready... My son started getting his teeth from 4 months old... Which I think is very young... and then had most of them by 1year 3months. As long as they a healthy teeth... Don't worry!

My son got his two bottom and then his teeth left and right of where the front two middle would go. It is normal no two children are the same. It is completely okay no worries.



My poor son cut four teeth at a time until he was done. By six months he had eight teeth already.

My son is soon to be 8 months old on the 9th. When he was 6 months he got his first 2 teeth on bottom. About a week ago he had gotten 2 more teeth on bottom next to the middle ones and now there are are 2 more starting to cut through on bottom. I keep checking his top and I see no teeth even trying to cut through. His top gums are not even showing any sign of teeth coming in. I dont know if i should get his mouth checked or wait it out?

There really isn't a set order...generally the front teeth usually come in first then molars. My daughter got her bottom middle two, then top middle two, then both bottom sides, both top sides, then her 4 molars and now her 4 'fangs' are in. Every baby is different. My daughter is 14 months and has 16 teeth already! I was so worried that she will have bad teeth because she got hers so quick, but like my doctor always says...every baby is different.

I dont think there really is a right order. Hale got his two bottom front teeth, 4 top front teeth and has one molar on each side, top and bottom for a total of 10 teeth. he is 17 months and several people have told me it's weird for him to have 4 molars and not more of the front teeth, but it's not like you can say 'hey teeth, come in this order' right? LOL.

It makes me feel better to know that she is not the only baby that I never thought was going to get teeth lol. And to know that other babies get teeth in different orders than what they say is normal :).

My little stinker didn't get a single tooth until he was 13 1/2 months old. I didn't think he'd ever get teeth...I was ready to look into baby dentures haha j/k. Anyway, my son's TOP two teeth came in first & now 2 months later his bottom two are coming in. So, I don't think there's a specific order or anything. It probably has to do with genetics or something. :)

Generally incisors come first and molars come last, but apart from that common pattern, they don't come in a specific order.

Sara, there is no "right order" for teeth to come in. My first daughter got her top middle two teeth and her bottom two middle teeth a week apart when she was 7 months old. She then skipped teeth and got the teeth next to them (first molars, I think they are). She then went back and got in the teeth in between before she finished getting her second molars at 18 months. My second, on the other hand, teethed her bottom two middle teeth at 10 months, then one by one she got the four middle upper teeth. She (17 months) just cut her upper first molars at the same time she is cutting her bottom right tooth next to the middle two. I can feel her bottom first molars as well, but they haven't cut through. Teeth are a funny thing. They seem to come in when they want, in the order they want. LOL!
