  • I think the average is about a week, but it could be sooner or later depending on the tooth thats coming in && the child. Usually from the time my son starts drooling a lot until I actually see the tooth break through the gums is anywhere from 3-5 days.

  • No way to tell.
    Some babies just suddenly have teeth - with no cranky teething period before. Some teethe for months before a tooth appears. For my daughter, it was usually 2 to 3 weeks. Her very last tooth actually took over 3 months - she started chewing on things, putting them right where that last tooth should come through, in early January but it was early April before the point broke through.
