  • All babies are different, I think alot start on bottom, but my nephew's teeth seem to come in the opposite way also.

  • Oh yes. Some do a top first, and some a bottom. My 13 month old has top and bottom both ready to break through. We are waiting to see which will come first.

  • Any order is fine. Yes, there is a "usual" order and the bottom teeth "usually" come first. But that's like saying the average height for a woman in the US is 5'6". Tons of women aren't that height but are perfectly normal... as long as the teeth arrive, it's fine.
