I was just wondering what age everyones kids started teething. My son is 4 and a half and am not sure if it is teething or something else. Is it too early for him?

My daughter got her first tooth when she was about 7 months old. After that one, the others came in so fast. She had all her baby teeth before she was one. But every child is different, my niece didn't start teething until she was 1 and 1/2.

First teeth
Child 1 @ 2 months
Child 2 @ 3 months
Child 3 @ 6 months
Child 4 @ 3 months
Child 5 @ 4 months
Normal is relative. Normal for one is not the same as normal for another.
Good luck

My son got his first tooth a five months but the teething started two months earlier! My niece had a tooth at four months. Like the rest are saying - depends on the kid. There are teething rings filled with water (not a silicon gel) that may help, frozen wash clothes or cooled in the fridge they may find nice too.

My son started teething at 2 months. the dr told me that it takes like 6 months for teeth to come in after you see signs of teething.

My first child did not even get his first two front teeth until about 12 months. He was a bit later than most as I was told. Most seem to begin teething between 6 and 9 months. My second child is that now and I assume he will be the same as my first. He has not yet gotten any teeth yet and none are seemingly on the way, and he is almost 10 months now.

My son had 5 teeth by the time he was 4 months old. Both of my sons started the teething process long before a tooth popped through. Good Luck.

Our daughter started teething around 5 months, it could be the same for him. She got those front bottom two teeth at the same time.

Hi there Andreina,my daughter is 6 yrs old and she started teething really early,like at 3 or4 months. Cut her first tooth at 5months. The boys started about 5 months old. the oldest was 9 months getting his first tooth and his younger brother was almost 10! months before he finally cut a tooth. be wary of later years teething as well.When adult teeth start coming in it starts all over except for the walking the floor at 3am. They chew on everything...Shirt sleeves,collars,cuffs and laces of any type.

son cut fist tooth at 1 mth and daughter at 8 mth. but they can be teething as early at 2 mth since the teeth are moving under the gums. the best thing that i found it the teething tablets. u can get them almost anywhere, from walmart to a healt food store. it will help them sleep also since it relaxes them and take the pain away naturaly so they can sleep

Nope not too early. My son was teething for several months before he had a tooth finally pop through. (by teething I mean, drooling, mild fever, chewing on EVERYTHING) Every kid does it at their own pace. The best way to know when to expect him to pop one out is to know when you & his dad got your 1st teeth. My son was a few months ahead of myself & my hubby, but close.

My son started when he was 4 months old and my lil girl was 9 months old. Some babies actually start early and when you see a lot of drooling and sometimes with fever. Thats a sign your son will have his first tooth..Good luck to you!

my children were pretty young when they started teething. my son was 4 months old and my daughter was 3 months old. it varies on each child really because some babies are born with teeth!

My sister in law is a dental assitant and she said anytime between 4-12 months. My little girl is 9 1/2 months young and her first tooth has just started to come through. One mother in my mothers group had her little girl with 4 teeth by 6 months...so guess anytime really.

My son got his first tooth at 7 months. But, my pediatrician told me they could teeth for months before a tooth actually comes in.

Do you mean 4 and a half months? My son is also 4 and a half months and he has cut two teeth now.It is different for each child so he is not early he is right on time for him.If he is drooling a lot ,biting on his fingers or toys then crying he may be teething.They usually cut the front bottom teeth first so if you feel with your finger you may notice a bump there or by looking you can see that the gum shape changes a little and can be red and swollen.A wet frozen baby wash cloth is great forchewing on for his gum relief and he can suck on it too for comfort.Good luck Andreina and let us know when his teeth finally come through.

No its not to early for him to be teething. My daughter started teething at two months. She didnt cut her first tooth until 6 months but teething started early. Lots of chopping, druling, hands in the mouth.

I'm assuming you mean that your son is 4 1/2 months? My son has just turned 6 months and is getting his first tooth. I know someone whose child already has two teeth and she is 4 months. Some babies are born with teeth. So it just depends on the child. My son chewed on everything and still does for quite some time before the first one popped out. I would just say to follow his ques and do what makes him comfortable.
