In which age babies get their first teeth?

MOST HELPFUL POSTS

Babies can get their first teeth at any age! Doctors will usually tell you they will start teething around 4 months, but my daughter has started at 3 months (she's now 4 months and the teeth still have not poked through). I have a friend who just had a baby and he was BORN with his first two teeth!!!! Also remember that it can take 1 month or much more for the teeth to poke through the gum. Cold teething rings help with the pain!

As a general guide it is said that babies will get their first teeth between the ages of 6 and 12 mths, these generally being the top 4 and the bottom 4. But every baby is different and this is just a guide! My daughter got her first 2 at 8mths and hasnt cut anymore yet and is coming up to 10mths. The daughter of a friend of mine didnt get her first tooth until 13mths and her 2nd at 15mths.

My daughter got her first tooth 2 days after her first birthday! Then the top and bottom 4 came in right away and one set of molars. But since last Nov she hasn't had a new tooth until last week. At this rate she will have all of her baby teeth by the time she's 10, LOL.

All three of my kids got their first two bottom teeth at six months, but I have known other people whose kids have gotten them as early as four months.
