  • Yep thats normal, they all pretty much have that little gap until teeth start coming in and pushing each other into proper place

  • Baby teeth should have gaps ... otherwise the permanent ones will grow in crooked b/c they are crammed.

  • my dr. told me that they're baby teeth will move up untill they are 3 years old, in other words they wont be in there 'permanent' place untill 3
