My nephew got his canines before his top front two but they followed soon behind. I wouldn't stress about it.

Anything is normal with teething. My son is 20 months old and only has 7 teeth. I havent seen anything else even trying to cut through. Some kids develope faster then others. If shes getting a canine tooth in be prepared for the fussiness. They are the most painful tooth to cut through i wish i could say more to help you. But ive got nothing. Like i said My son is 20 months old and only has 4 teeth on the top row and 3 on the bottom row.

My son is 5 months and he is getting his first teeth which are his top canine teeth, they don't come in any specific order but I know they usually get their bottome first but I am not worried I just say he is going to be my little vampire : )

my little guy got his top side teeth before front ones as well. but then it only took a couple of days and the front ones were out too. he is seven months and has six teeth. every baby cuts teeth at his own pace:)

My 9 month old still has no teeth what so ever! But I'm sure they are on their way, he's been teething for a while.

hi patience! i have twin 9monght old daughters, and they haven't had one tooth come in yet!! the have been teething since 3 months, but no teeth what so ever!! im going crazy with constantly wiping slobbery toys down!.. anyways i did hear that i wasn't as normal as most to get canines before front teeth, but i would talk to the pediatrician. every baby is different, they will do it at their own bodies time! i wouldn't worry

good luck!

I think so, i know many kids that got their canines 1st before their front, it just seem to add to the fussiness but with my little girl i dont use meds or orjal - i just use these ice stir sticks they work great you just pop them in the freezer and hand it to them when they are fussy and they can chew or suck on the stir sticks and they melt at a nice rate. hope this helps

Some kids get the top canines first, I've heard it is hell for them.

Yes. There is no 'certain' order that teeth are supposed to come in. This is nothing to worry abt! Good luck with the teething!! :o)

I have a two year old who's teeth came in all at once. I can't honestly say I remember the order of how they came in. I can say this much. He is missing his front right tooth. It just never came in. I've talked to many doctors about it and they say it's perfectly "normal" and healthy. I'd say let her be. Whatever happens happens.

I think all babies grow teeth at different times! I don't think there is a "normal" when it comes to teeth!

I bet she is teething, it's that time! :) I don't know what is "normal" with teeth coming in, but the others will quickly follow, so I would't worry about the order they come in.
