  • They were 5 all different. the longest it took was my youngest daughter. Her teeth almost always took over a month to come through. When she was getting them she was always drooling. It seemed like they would never come it but they did.

  • my daughter had the white line on her gums for about 3 weeks.. it took an additional month for the tooth to come all the way in after it broke through..
    each child is different tho so it could take longer

  • Every child is different.There is no way to tell how long or when it will happen, but I promise you will know.
