What is the earliest a baby starts to teeth?

My daughter is only 11 weeks, but naws on her hands and my fingers all the time. Is this just something to do, or is this a sign of teething?

  • Some babies are born with teeth. When my daughter was like 10 weeks old, we had a doctor say that she was starting to teeth but that it could be anywhere from 2 weeks to 6 months before we saw any actual teeth. She cut her first tooth when she was 4 months and now at 8 months has two completely in and her top four are all pushing up. Those ones are gonna fun, I think they are all gonna be one right after another!

  • my son just turned 3 months old and has been trying to devower his hands for the past 4 weeks or so.. i can see some little white buds trying to come it but it may still be a while before they actually pop thru.... invest in some teether rings or freeze a washcloth for her to chew on. if she gets fussy a little baby tylenol will help mellow her out... there are also teething tablets you can put under her tounge to help and also baby oragel. good luck...

  • Before birth through sometime in the first year are all normal. All you can really say is a child will have teeth by the time he turns 2.
