  • both my girls were 3 months when they started, but some can be sooner than that and some later. My nephew was 13 or 14 months when he started teething. Some babies can even be born with teeth

  • My son cut his first two teeth at 4 months old. My daughter cut her first tooth at 11 months. Every child is different, but at 5 weeks I'd say it's just an off day.

  • Some are born with teeth, some don't start until 18 months always there is a wide range of normal.

  • Some are born with teeth, average age is around 6-8 months from I have seen. My first got 4 teeth in at 2 months, second got four teeth in at 5 months, and my third is getting 6 in all at once. They never got one in at a time always 2 or more. Some babies can teeth months before the actual tooth can be seen this happened with my last two babies.
