When did your child's first molars start coming in?

My daughter just turned a year June 2nd, but I am beginning to wonder if her molars are coming in. She has been having more trouble sleeping and she has been chewing on her fingers. Everything I have read seems closer to15-18 months. I know this could just be other teeth coming in, but when I had a finger in her mouth it felt really hard where I think the molar will come through. I just thought it was too early. So what has your experience been? Could her molars really be coming in?
Also, how long did it take for them to come through because I have heard that they can be pretty tough on the little ones?

  • Nathan will be 1 next month and I think his first 2 molars are starting to break through and by far it has been the worse teething experience for him and us, I can tell he is in alot of pain.
