Babies: 3 - 6 Months

Question for Moms with LOs under 5 mo?

Does your child have a tooth yet or are any coming in? I don't mean they are drooling a lot and chewing on everything, so you think they are teething. I mean real hard evidence of teething. DD has one that has been slowly sprouting (its been a little white pointy stub for a week) and I'm curious how common this is at that age. TIA!

  • nothing yet but definitky drooling and cranky
  • I guess it is pretty common since all books say they may get first tooth between 4 and 6 months. There is one bumpie with a 3.5 months old who has one or two bottom teeth already.

  • Nathan's is starting to do the same thing, you can feel a little tooth under the skin. I think it's pretty common actually, that and the gums shifting to prepare for a tooth
  • Oh, mine seems to be teething but no hard evidence yet... Or maybe he has just found a way to get his gums massaged by mommy :P because he sure enjoys it and bites on my finger!

    How long after you first saw it break the skin until it actually was a full tooth? We just have a point and it seems like it is stuck there. I check everyday and no progress. I'm waiting for her to go nuts one day and for it to suddenly be there, but not sure if it will be overnight or take a month before it comes all the way in.

  • My DD has 2 teeth.  She got one 4 days ago then got the other one today.  They are both the bottom ones.

  • Yes. LO had a neonatal tooth cut through a few days after her birth. It was shocking to say the least.
  • I know babies get teeth in the front first, but I swear that I see two little white bumps in the side of my DD mouth. I asked the nurse today and she said no way she is not teething. When I tried to show her she would not even look and continued to say babies do not teeth until about 6 months. Friends of mine who have older LO's say it looks like she is getting 3 teeth in. I am just concerned about the one on the side and the rude nurse who would not even humor me and look.

    And here is evidence that they do! I saw white bumps on the sides and thought DD was going to get vampire teeth on the bottom, but this one seemed to come out of nowhere.

    It's rare but not impossible for teeth to cut from a place other than the bottom.
