How old was your baby for the first tooth And Are you breastfeeding or formula feeding?

An study stays that breastfeeding babies tend to get the first tooth later than babies who are formula feeding. (but there is no information for babies who are both BF and FF )

  • I don't believe that study. Everything I have read says that when teeth come is dependent on genetics. To get a idea of when your lo will pop their first tooth, look back at you and so's baby books. It held true for me. My dd is formula feed and got her first tooth when she was 5 months.
