hi, Evy is 4 months now...and Monday she cut her first tooth! She has been working on it for about 3 weeks, I would check everyday, but finally it came through...but I had a suprise...both bottom teeth were there! is this normal? Amelia, our other daughter, who is 10 now, didn't get the first tooth until 13 months...late I know...but there has to be a happy medium.
4 months is definitely on the early side and 13 months is very late. My older DD cut her first tooth at 5 months and she got a new one every week until she was 6.5 months and had 6 teeth. There's absolutely nothing wrong with your DD and in the long run she'll likely get the unpleasantry of teething over with sooner.
my dd is 12 months and has 6 teeth, she got her first set at i think 9 months, but all 6 came in pairs, first it was bottom two, then top two, then side two, i guess shes lucky she didnt have to go through separate teething for all of them!
hi , its normal ! all kids are diffrent. son got all his teeth by 12 mths fangs first and together too , looked like a vampire ! but his always came in 2s but my girl only 1 at a time and a long time inbetween , she is 3 in may and still has no fangs !!!! lol
My DD has her 2 bottoms and she's just about 7 months. She got them about 3 weeks ago. One day one came in and the next the other. She's been actively teething from 3 months though and what a horror show it's been. I'm just glad that they finally cut through.
out of my 5 kids, 2 of them got more teeth than that at once. The other kids all got a tooth, than a couple days to a week later got another one. I'd say anything really goes with teething!
My one daughter got her first 2 within a week of each other, than for 10 more months did not get any! but when they finally came they came with a vengence! 6 at once! Now she is 8 yrs old and losing teeth, and they seem to be falling out the same way they came in! (Poor girl)
My last baby, Isaiah, just had 5 teeth coming in, 4 came in together (molars), and the other one came a few days later. Talk about sleepless nights!
Dont worry, your DD is normal, and so was your other child.
Every child gets their teeth at different times...
My DS, he cut two teeth at once at 3 months, I stopped breast feeding at that time because he would bite me. He continued getting teeth about every month... he had all his teeth by the time he was 9 months old, well, not including his 2 year molars. Seriously, because he had all his teeth so early, he was able to eat solid food earlier too. He had a hamburger when he was 10 months old. LOL.
Sad thing is with teething early, they will loose those baby teeth early too and get their permenant teeth sooner, which in turn, they can get more cavities. He's 7 now, and we've had our share of cavities, but overall, he has nice strong good teeth.
My DD was different, she didn't get teeth until 6 months, and she only cut one tooth at that time.
