  • Babies can be born with teeth or can start teething as early as one day old these teeth usually reseed. Generally babies average teething age is 6 months. It is not impossible to start early though. They only tell you statistical ages. Good luck I hope this helps.

  • Our pediatrician and all the articles I've read said that babies can start teething as early as 3 months. Anywhere between 3-10 months usually. It's hereditary. My son started around 4-5 months. He was 6.5 months old before the first tooth came in and three days later we got the second. When he was 8 months old he got 4 teeth through within 2 weeks.

  • They can be born with teeth, so any age.

    On another note... my daughter just turned one and has only 1 tooth *sighs* We're a late bloomer over here, lol.
