  • Ours was fussy for the first but the second followed suit a few days later and she wasn't. My LO's came in about 6 weeks ago and you can just now see them when she smiles. It all depends on how fast the come in.

  • I think it took maybe 3 weeks or so for my son's bottom teeth to come in completely and yes they came at the same time although the first one cut maybe 2-3 days before the other one. Now he just cut both his top teeth so I'm waiting for those to come all the way in but it's taking longer!

  • Usually they come in pairs, to the one next to it will probably be out within the week.

    I was able to get a picture of my sons tooth the same day it came though but it's just kind of looks like a white thing on his gums... and it took only a few days for it to come out enough to get a reallky good picture of it.

  • It will probably take two or three more weeks to fully come in.

  • yeah it will take a couple of weeks. my little 7 month old just got hers about three weeks ago she got one then a week later she got the second one, you can see them but when you take a picture AmiJanell is right they only look like two white spots on her gums but they don't look like teeth. Good Luck
