  • My son drooled like freaking crazy at age 3 months but never got any teeth. He didn't get any until 1 week before he turned a year. He is 16 months now and only has 5 teeth.

    The average is usually between 6-8 months but if they are delayed thats ok because they will come in stronger.

  • Babies get their first teeth on average around 6-8 months. Some earlier, some later but that is the average age but kids can begin teething 2 months or so before the teeth even show up ;-).

  • Mine started at 10 weeks. He's only 13 now, but they say it can take months for the first one to break through.

  • My son is 4 months his first tooth broke through a few days ago, and a second on the way i think. my son was drooling, fussy, and always had his hands in his mouth for a month or so before the first broke through.

  • Babies can get their first teeth anywhere from birth to 14 months... Mine got his first at 9 months, but a friend of mine had a three week old who was teething. I myself didn't get my first tooth till 13 months. So, it all depends... You'll know, though, because a first tooth is hard to miss!
