When Do Babies Start Teething
Every child grows at a unique pace, and there is no definite age at which your child will definitely start teething.
In Which Month Do Babies Get Teeth?
Babies start getting their first teeth when they are between 4 and 7 months old. In very rare cases, a baby starts teething after it is over one-year-old. There have also been cases where the baby’s first tooth was visible at the time of the birth, but both these extremes are very rare.
How Early Can a Baby Start Teething?
Teething generally starts at four months, but your baby may start teething as early as three months too. A baby can even start teething at two months. Babies who start teething early are born with white bumps, known as pre-teeth, visible on their gums. If you see your baby teething at only two or three months of age, don’t fret. It is not abnormal at all.
It is important to note that teeth start developing when the baby is in the womb. In fact, the tooth buds form inside the gums at this point. After the teething process starts and the first tooth comes out, it takes a few months for all the teeth to be visible.
What Teeth Do Babies Get First?
The first teeth that come out are the ones at the bottom. The two teeth along the lower side appear first.
In What Order Do Babies’ Teeth Come?
