My son is almost 8 months and has no teeth. But the last three days he has been cranky and keeping me up all night. So i'm hoping its cause a tooth is coming. How long usually does it take for the tooth to actually cut through the gums. My DH keeps reminding me that if this is a tooth we only have to do it 26 times. lol But seriously he whines most of the night. Is this normal and how much longer till i see a tooth.
