How long untill the next teeth appear?

My LO cut her first two teeth simultaneously a while ago. She was miserable, I was severely sleep deprived (more so than normal, that is) I just want to know how long yours took before starting to cut the next (top) ones?

  • every baby is different. I know a lady whos 18 month old still hasn't got all her teeth, my cousins 7 month old has all his teeth! and my 10 month old has 3 at the bottom and 5 up the top. she got her first ones coming through at 4 months. they arent fun either.. shes crabby as when she teeths and the drooling is excessive. just get that baby gel on the gums or use lemon peels and teethers and give paracetamol if necessary..

  • My youngest started at about 2 1/2-3 months and they just kept popping in one right after the other. There was maybe 3-4 weeks in between them? But every baby is different. Some babies don't even start teething until a year old or later!

  • It just depends on the baby. It's not always consistent. Mine had his first two teeth come in on the bottom, then a couple of months later 4 teeth on the top came in and then, he had two on the bottom again, and he's getting another 1 on top.
    I hear the worst are the eye teeth, haven't had the pleassure of those screams yet... lol...
    Good luck to you!

  • They say the first set are worse so hopefully for you the next won't be as bad...

  • My son got his first 2 teeth (bottom central incisors) a week before he turned 8 months. Then he popped through 4 tops (the top central and lateral incisors) a week before he turned 10 months. He didnt get anymore teeth until last week (he will be 17 months saturday), when he popped through a molar and has 5 other teeth swollen and about to pop through. It all depends on the kiddo. Some get alot at once and have large spaces between getting them like mine, some get 1 every month until they come in. Just depends :)
