my son got his 1st tooth when he was 3 months....i showed his doctor the little bud at his 2 month check up and he told me it was a cyst (i knew better) 4 weeks later a little tooth popped out! he is 15 months and has all of his baby teeth now. I know that most don't start until around 10 months though, so I wouldn't worry, but they do tend to run in the family, so ask around to your parents and inlaws!

My sons were early they started teething at about 3 1/2 to 4 months of age. but every kid is different. I know some kids that didn't start getting teeth until close to their first birthday.

the average is around 6 months. but the later they come the stronger they will be. just remember to brush those cute little teeth.

Every baby is different. My baby girl is 7 months and she still doesn't have any teeth. I can see them under the gums, but they haven't popped through yet.

Babies can actually be born with teeth so anytime with in the first year is my guess. Just look for the signs... likes pressure on their gum's, fevers, and extra saliva.

I am a young single mom of age 21 of a 6 month old baby girl. All kids grow at their own rhythm. The earliest it start it is at 2 ½ month. My daughter was teething around then so I got her this Red RazBerry Silicone Teether. At 4 month she had 2 teeth growing in. Now she is 6 month she has 2 and a few more coming in.



Tip use the Red RazBerry Silicone Teether soother to chew on & put it in the freezer when she/he doesn’t use it also clean it every use. I know some of you never heard of this but try it. Buy some baby Vicks put it on her/his feet with socks and behind her/his ears & lower cheek. I swear she/he will fall asleep quicker than you think & will be in less pain. I do the same and use Vicks on myself when I have a cold, ear infection, fever.



Good luck.

my daughter got her 1st 2 at 10months, then got her top 2 the next, her 4 eye teeth at once at 12months, and then her 4 molars at once when she was 14months...my pediatrician said that some babies are even born with a tooth or two...

all babies are different in developing so it can be any time from 4months up. my daughter got her teeth early, however, my cousin's son didn't start teething until he was around 10 months old.
