  • 4-7 months but every child is different. Some babies come out of the womb with teeth..eek.

  • I have heard of babies that were born with a tooth or there is no set age.

    That holds true for anything until after a year...there is no set age to start crawling, teething, sitting alone, standing, walking, talking, eating solids, etc. etc.

  • I was born with a tooth. My oldest son cut his first tooth at 6 weeks but my youngest didn't cut his first one until he was 8 months

  • He's going to be 3 months on June 6... he's started drooling, fussy when I feed him - he'll start crying and keep eating (pretty sure it's not an ear infection - no fever and not pulling the ear.), he keeps sticking his hands in his mouth and chewing and drooling on my shirt.

  • Birth! Some babies are born with teeth! My son started at 10 weeks. I couldn't believe it! Be aware, they can be teething for a long time before they actually cut a tooth. The tooth will be pushing its way up there, and it will cause pain long before it actually comes through the gum. Ah, the joys of parenting!

  • Normally around 3 to 4 months... i guess your baby is about to.Be aware that there are some cases when the tooth in front is about to come out he may experience fever..But don't worry this is just normal..just give her a paracetamol.
