  • It varies with each kid. My dd didn't start teething until she was almost 11 months old...then again if your child is bottle fed then she may teeth earlier. If you start noticing she's grumpy, maybe has a fever and extra drooliness then try using some baby orajel, just rub it on her gums and see if that helps her out. But don't do it until you see signs of her possibly teething on more than one occasion (kids can get grumpy from being tired or hungry, a fever from other things and they normally drool a little, just look for the signs and write them down if you have to with times and dates so you can see if it's happening regularly)

  • It varies with every baby. No age is too young, some babies are even born with teeth. And then some dont get teeth until after there first birthday. Look for drooling, crankiness and swollen red gums. Good Luck!

  • Every baby is different. Be aware that they can have pain from it WAY before teeth appear. My son started having pain around 10 weeks, and didn't get a tooth until about 5 months.

  • My son will be a year old at the end of this month and STILL has no teeth. I was told if a baby doesn't have any teeth by 15 months then something may be wrong. Hope he gets some soon.
