When does a baby start growing teeth?

When does a baby start growing teeth?

  1. It varies widely. My baby brother had his first tooth at 2 weeks old, and I have heard of babies being born with a tooth, usually the bottom front tooth.

    The order baby teeth come in is not constant either. My middle son got his top eye-teeth (canines) first, and looked like a baby vampire!

    Here’s the official answer:

    Teething can begin as early as 4 months of age, but most babies don't get their first tooth until 6 months. Teeth usually come in pairs. The bottom front two teeth typically show up first, followed by the top ones (both sets are called central incisors). Baby Teeth: Frequently Asked Questions

    But then further in the article it says:

    The first tooth can come in anytime between 4 and 12 months. If a tooth hasn't come in by 1 year, there's probably still no reason to worry if your child is growing fine otherwise — he may just be a late bloomer.
