when babies start getting teeth, where do they usually come thru first at?

My daughter is almost 5months and has been teething for just about 2months now. Just within the last week, she has been extremely whiney, has diahrea and is actually playing and pulling on her bottom gums now, before she was just chewing on her hands and everything else. Just wondering if this could possibly mean she might have a tooth possibly trying to come thru...

  • Probably. Both my kids got their 2 front bottom teeth first followed shortly by their 2 top front teeth

  • Mine got his bottom front first just like all my books said he would. It took forever. I coudl feel them coming for three weeks before they emerged.

  • Somewhere toward the front of the mouth. lol

    Each one of mine had a different first set of teeth. They each had two come in at the same time, but different pairs.

  • This is the "usual" order, with the bottom teeth in a set more likely to arrive first...

    Front incisors (the "two front teeth")
    Lateral incisors (the teeth right next to the front teeth)
    The first molars
    The "cainine" teeth (these fill the gap between the incisors and the molars)
    The second molars

    20 teeth in all. Any order is actually fine with many, many kids not following the "usual" order.
