  • 3 1/2 months with the first and no teeth until 8 1/2 months, just over 2 1/2 months with the second, he is 7 months now and no teeth yet. Hyland's teething tablets work well for most kids. If there is a fever with the teeting you can also use a homeopathic remedy called "Chamomilla" (also from Hyland's). Remedies like this come in different strengths. You need to get a 30X. I use one or two tablets to start with and then one tablet in 20 to 30 minutes later. I have found that this works wonders for the fever. Also, Chamomilla is one of the ingrediants in the Hyland's Teeting Tablets. Good luck!!

  • She started at 2 1/2 months and we are at 7 months and still NO teeth. She has 6 that you can see wanting to come in (including her canines) but none have busted through yet...

  • started teething at 3 months but didn't get a tooth til 7 months. This has to be the roughest part of a babies life seriously and for parents. Teething tablets and/or oral gel with tylenol or motrin and frozen or warm items. I used a cool wash rag for my son to chew on

  • My 5 month old is just starting to get his bottom left canine in first. I'm hoping he's not like my boyfriend and has 3 sets of teeth!
