  • I swore my son came out teething but his first tooth wasn't until he was 7 months old - apparently its genetic - so find out when you started and when the babies father started and should be close to one of yours

  • I was told not until at least 3 or 4 months. But my son is 9 weeks old and already has 5 teeth that are poking out of his gums.

  • whenever they start teething.

    some babies are born with teeth...others still are toothless after a year...but it generally starts around 4 months and continues until about 2 years.

  • hard to say cause they start way before you see the teeth come in, my son started at 4months drooling pain, crying pulling gums, and didnt get teeth till 8 months

  • None of my three children had teeth until right around their first birthdays. Every child is different.
