  • Yes he can.

    The vast majority of babies sprout their first teeth when they're between 4 and 7 months of age. An early developer may get his first white cap as early as 3 months, while a late bloomer may have to wait until he's a year old or more. (In rare cases, a baby's first tooth is already visible at birth.) Whenever the first tooth makes its appearance, celebrate the milestone by taking pictures and noting the date in your child's baby book. - From babycenter.

  • It's possible. All my children had two bottom teeth by 4 mo. I know that is a bit earlier though from what I hear. My niece's baby didnt get any teeth till she was about 8 mo old so it just varies.

  • my son had 2 bottom teeth by 4 months, so absolutely, he got all his teeth including his 2 year molars all before he was 2, but my daughter didnt get a single tooth until she was 11 months. its all different, sometimes they just like to chew on things, keep your eyes open for swollen gums that will be your true indicator

  • Yes. 2 of my 3 started teething at 3 months. They didn't actually poke through until 5 months, but lots of drooling and chewing starting at 3 months!

  • Yes my daughter had her first 2 teeth come in before 3 months like 2 weeks before. Cool wash clothes always soothed her :-)
