  • DS started at 10 weeks! It varies by each kid, but it's pretty much never too soon to start. It starts long before teeth appear.

  • usually 6-7 months.. my girl had has coming at 3 months.. some are even born with teeth already exposed on birth.. the signs are fluey or cold like symptoms, coughing ( from drool) drool, red cheeks,. pulling their ears. having trouble sleeeping and settling, cranky they may even get runny poos ( from the drool and mucous from their noses). and they may want to bite everything and anything

  • Ade got her first tooth at 5 months old. It will more than likely be one of the bottom front teeth (incisor). You will notice a bump under the gums.

  • It just depends on the child. My daughter had her first at 4 months. There's a lot of products out there that will help with any pain that yours has. I use teething tablets for mine and they worked great.

  • babies teeth when they teeth. each baby is different :) drooling doesnt always mean teething, it could have been passed down from either you or your s/o (thats what our dr told us). my son got his first two teeth at 3 months, but also some babies are born with teeth so it can come at any time good luck!
