  • Mine didn't get her first tooth until she was 11.5 months old.

    some babies get them at 2-3 months...some over a year old.

    The older the baby is when they get teeth, the healthier the teeth are since they have less length of time to be exposed to bacteria before the permanent teeth come in.

  • Both of mine started at 3months, and have great teeth... My first bottle feed till 5months then went to sippy cup with no prob, and then straw cups by 8months and drinking out of a real cup by 1yr, but he's pretty advance for his age my second breast feed till 1 1/2 had a sippy cup the first month at night after I took his booby, but was already drinking out of a regular cup during the day thanks to trying to be like his brother who is just 15months older.... I told you all that because as long as you move them along at the right ages they will have great teeth don't keep them using bottle or sippy cup for too long.
