  • I think average is around 4 months but it can really be any time. My DH got his firs tooth at 13 months! A very very few babies are born with teeth.

  • it can be as early as three months. it was fo rmy daughter. she began putting fingers to mouth and even after i re-fed her at breast fully! She also whined and cried/fussed. I used withmy son and now her, hylands teethign tablets that dissolve under tongue. use four at a time and this calms them and they may evenfall asleep at the relief. i woudl be on a commercial for them., my mother is a registered nurse and i also looked teething up on webMD and it said as early as four months and gives a list of symptoms to watch for. take a look at it.

  • 4 to 10 months. It's a BIG range :) My son cut his first tooth at 10 months. Some babies are born with teeth.

  • My son is 11 weeks now and started teething a month ago. He is about to cut a top tooth. I thought it would be a few months before this started lol... I guess it is different for every little one :)
