My baby is 11 months old, his bottom teeth came out when he was 7 months, about a month ago I started to notice that his upper side teeth were starting to come out and not the front ones. Has this happened to any of your children??? I'm worried that it could be because of his paci.

Dont worry Vanessa, this is perfectly normal. I had to boys whose teeth came out in exactly the right order. Then wham bam, my daughter crosscut nearly every one of her teeth. None of them came through in the right order except the first teeth.



So it sounds like your son's teeth are doing the same as hers. She got her bottom 2 then her top side ones too. She looked like a vampire for quite awhile lol!!! Pacificer has nothing to do with it. His teeth will come when they want too and in watever order they want to lol! My daughter is 4 now with perfect teeth.



Hope I have set your mind at ease. Good luck with the teething :)

Thhey al come in differently. There's a usual order, but it doesn't mean that's the way it always happens. My daughter got two front top and bottom, then all 4 molars. She now has top two side, but not bottom. She's working on cuspids now, but still no sign of bottom side teeth. They'll come when they're ready. Pacis have nothing to do with teeth coming in.

Hi there the same thing happened to my daughter when her teeth came through. Her bottom middle teeth were the first to come through and then her upper side teeth came through and then her middle upper ones. She is now 2 and has nearly all of her teeth, this hasn't caused any problems in terms of her teeth alignment etc and they have all turned out just fine. I'm sure it will be the same with you little bubba.

My son "skipped" his third ones back and got the fourth ones back first. The dentist said there is a lot of variation and as long as they are all coming in HEALTHY and not with bottle mouth or anything, there is nothing to worry about.

don't worry there is no""right order" your baby's teeth will come in whatever order they want to (as your baby gets older you will notice this rule of thumb will apply to so much more lol), can't see how your daughters paci has anything to do with it i've heard of other children whose sides came in before their middle and weren't on a paci.

Your baby is unique enjoy her smile take some photos!! Enjoy!! =D

My second child's teeth have come in in no particular order at all. At 16 months she has three on the top and three on the bottom, lol. Not typical, I guess.

They come in however they do for that particular child.

I dnt think there's a certain 'order' that their teeth are supposed to come in...I also wouldn't worry about it too much as this is their 'baby' teeth.

It's true, the teeth don't always come out in the order the books tell you they will.
