  • Have you counted them? He should have 20. Just take a peek inside and see if he has 2 big flat molars on each side.

  • My son is 19 months old and has 12 teeth... He has recently been sticking his fingers in his mouth and sucking or chewing on them... Any finger or even the thumb, sometimes a few at at time.... It almost seems as though hes just sucking on his fingers though.... Which is quite strange b/c he never took a pacifier and was breast fed till a year with very little bottle supplements... I have been wondering if hes teething too or just wanting something for comfort.... I know Im not really answering your questions, but just letting you know Im in a similar situation.... I will let you know if I found anything out myself....
