  • no set rules....sorry. Get some Hylands Teething Tablets and things that are safe that he likes to chew on and just wait it out.....My son got his first tooth when he was 8 months old...but he showed signs of it at 5/6 months....

  • Yep, no way to tell. The teeth may stop moving and the teething symptoms go away for weeks. Or they may pop out tomorrow.

  • i remember my daughter having teething symptoms around 2-3 mos old. her first tooth didn't cut until 7 mos, second tooth cut around 8 mos, and the top four cut during the 10th mo.

  • No way to tell. My daughter loved frozen (slightly defrosted so they're not super solid) apple in a mesh feeder. It helps reduce swelling (cold) and relieves pain (pressure). Once baby is over 6 mo., a little ibprofen is has an anti inflammatory and I found it helped reduce swelling so the tooth would cut through quicker.

  • No clue. Mine had all their teeth pop through before we even knew they were teething.
