How soon after your child got their first tooth, did they get their 2nd and 3rd?

My 4 1/2 month old has one tooth, and she is cutting her second also. She's been great with them, no fever, no fussy or anything. do they usually come quick one after another like that though?

  • Mine always got 2 at a time, or within about 2 weeks or each other. Looking at his baby book, my son got his second tooth 10 days after his first, and his 3rd tooth 2 months after the 2nd.

  • My dd cut her first tooth at 5 months and then another every 2-3 weeks non-stop. By the time she was a year she had all her teeth. She started loosing them the same way too. At one point she had 6 teeth missing, all in the front. It made for interesting school picures. Her dentist said since she get them fast, she would lose them fast.

    My dd got his first tooth at 3 months and he would get them in pairs about 2 weeks apart. He would go a month or two between the pairs.
