  • After it breaks through the skin, it may take one to four weeks for come all the way out.

  • It should break through throughout the next couple of days and then will keep getting taller. The good thing is that the painful part is probably almost over if not all the way over. If she got her bottom middle one, chances are the other bottom middle one will come very soon after.

  • A few days for my son.
