  • its not common, but yes she can get her side teeth first. she will get her front teeth too it just might be a couple more months. like my doctor said..."I have never seen a child in kindergarten with out front teeth".

    with the solid foods, it may be because of the teething. try using orajel or ambesol on her gums for babies. or a frozen (wet) wash cloth
