  • No way I think my dd started teething at 2 mth's. She got two bottom teeth at four mth's.

  • Both my girls started teething at 1 month or so they didn't get teeth until around six months. There is no set month for a baby to start teething, they just might not get them until 5-8 month. Yes, it is normal at 4 months.
