My son is 6 weeks old and I swear I see a little tooth bud on his lower gumline. Could it really be?

Yes it could be. Children have all their teeth up in the gums,even second teeth.

My youngest grandson had teeth by 3 months, real teeth. And within a week about 5-7 popped up.
His doctor told DD no ... I said yes, and she was shocked when they broke threw his guns lol.
So a baby can get teeth early. Only God knows when, they're going to pop out.
If the baby seems uncomfortable numb her gums top and bottom.

Could be! My older two kids both had their first teeth by 4 months old.

My little man isn't even 2 months yet! I guess they can get teeth this early though from what I've read now. How's your little one?

Yes that is really early! But maybe the tooth won't break through for a while. My little one is great. She's 9 weeks old already. We had her 2 month check-up on Tuesday and she's in the 95th percentile for weight and 86th got length. She's a big girl! Lol.

That isn't a tooth. It's called an Epstein Pearl.
