  • It could take forever! My Ds had a tooth showing at the top during thanksgiving of 08 and it dissapeared my doc said that it was normal and now he is 6 months and at his doc appointment today he said the both front ones were right there just waiting to come through, so i guess it all depends on the baby

  • It can take months. My son is starting the teething process (he's 3 months) and my doctor told me that he could be 11 months before we even see the first tooth come in. Ahhh!!

  • My daughter is living proof that it can take FOREVER!!! she was teething at 3 months and JUST got her first tooth last monday at 9.5 months! and we could see it just under her gums for about 3 months! So it will come but who knows when!
