When do babies start to teethe?

I have a 7 wk old baby girl and Im curious to know if she can be teething right now. She did not like the binky at first and now she likes it and when she sucks on it she whines and just chews the crap out of it. Even after she just ate.

  • They can start anywhere from 3 months and up. My son started at 5 months, but my friend's daughter started at 3 1/2 months.

  • My DD started at 3 and 1/2 months she got her first tooth at 3 months 29 days. She also had all of her baby teeth (except 2 year molars) by the time she was 14 months. But, my sister's DD only had 4 teeth and she is turning 1 on Monday. She didn't start teething until after 6months ... Just depends on the baby.

  • I have learned that teething can start at all ages. My daughter has 2 bottom teeth had them since 6 months old, but my niece has 3 teeth, and she started getting hers at 2 1/2 months. Some babies are born with teeth. It just depends on the baby(:

  • All babies are different. I've read that some can start as early as 2-3 months. My DD is 6 months, and I think she's beginning to teeth. Nothing has broken through yet, but I think they're on their way.

  • Could be. My son started teething at around 10 weeks. It SUCKS, but it is what it is! It starts long before the teeth actually push through. You can try massaging her gums, or giving her teething toys.

  • anywhere from birth to 14 months lol. but you'll notice when they start to teeth.. the gums will start to swell slightly and you will be able to see the teeth starting to come up the gums.
