My daughter has been teething for a little bit now. The doctor said she is handling it really well which is why we didnt know sooner. When we look at her gums, we can see the teeth with just a thin layer of skin over it. Does anyone know how long it takes(average) from this point for the teeth to cut through?

  • I'm not sure....but if she has something to chew on it'll break through faster.

    Congrats on having a good teether! My son was too, and he teethed 3 or 4 at a time! A true blessing!
