When do babies start teething?

I am a newbie, and I have a 2 month old, but I have a lot of "when" questions. When do they start teething? When do they laugh? When do they begin rolling over, sitting up? LOTS of questions. I was an only child and when I ask my mom she cannot remember when I did these things haha.

  • Teething has no set time - some start teething before birth, some don't get a tooth until after the first birthday. Both are fine.
    I don't remember when my daughter laughed. By 5 months I think but I'm not sure.
    Rolling over happens between 4 and 6 months.
    Sitting up between 5 and 8 months.

    The AAP puts out a good baby book: Caring for Your Baby and Young Child has really good developmental charts:
    Just don't stress over the charts. Use them to spot problems (your child isn't doing something that the majority of kids her age can do) and to see what she will be mastering in the coming months so you can help her learn and grow.

  • My son got his first tooth at 5 months, he's 10 months now & has 8. He was laughing by 3 months & started sitting up on his own at 8 months. He's been learning to walk holding onto everything now and figured out how to climb up stairs at 9 months.

    Laugh? 2 months
    Start Rolling Over? 3 weeks
    Sitting up? He pulls himself up to sit up but still practicing staying up

    but thats just my son its different for every baby
