We had a joyous visit from my great grandson and his mom and dad yesterday. He had acted like he was teething the last time he was here. Now Mom is telling me the pediatrician said he is actually teething. I just couldn't believe it! He is two months and probably about a week and teething already. Does this mean that by the age of nine he will be greying and/or entering college? Kids are growing too quickly. It scares me!I feel stunted to think back of when my kids teethed. Do you know of a child who has started teething so early? Does't it make you feel weird? If you have been around other children you know they usually don't start teething until alittle later. What has been your experience? I am wondering how early he will be with other things. Hmmm Your thoughts? Feelings?

ha ha ha that's really weird. Yes I agree kids are growing so fast now. Not only you are feeling weird today, I just saw it in the television that her daughter actually can read and she is just 1 year old! Her mom really stated that it's weird and starting to get nervous.

Well that is fantastic! I've never heard such thing but I believe you though. Why would anybody feel nervous about such gift? If I were the mom I would definately encourage my child to learn more stuff. It is a mom's pride of what the child would become someday!

Personally I think it really is up to the development of each child as to what happens anymore. But I have heard of babies starting to teeth this early and it really makes you wonder. I guess overall it is most painful for the mothers who are wanting to nurse. But overall with issues like this I guess they just need to make sure all the teeth come in Healthy and everything is is always fine from there.

Maybe it is because of different lifestyles than when we were little? I know kids definately are allowed to eat more from the time they are only a couple of months now if they want. But as long as they are healthy everything should be OK.

Children do seem to be developing earlier and earlier. It is scary. I don't think he will be greying or entering college but I think that his maturity will surprise you. My girls have grown up a lot faster than what I did I think.

Isn't it? I thought I had been sucked into some SF film or something. None my families's kids have teethed this early before. It just doesn't seem normal.

Hi Grandma! I don't have any real personal experience, but I can definitely say that kids are growing up way faster than we did and I don't believe the "water excuse"! You can see it all around. Just look at the "little girls" who aren't so little at the age of 10 anymore. I have no idea what's going on, but each new generation seems to be growing faster and faster and it is a bit scary, don't you think?

Yes,it is a real condition.Some baby teething so early.Some people think that this is strange.In fact,this information shows that the baby is not lack of calcium,so his teeth grow up early.It is a normal phenomenon.

Think my grand daughter was around 8 months old when she started and all of a sudden she had six teeth come thru at once. that to me was weird. then she cut her 2 year old mular when she was one years old. Now she is close to 6 and I wonder if she will loose those 6 all at once like she got them hmmmmm. Dont know if cutting teeth early will make them extra smart but they might be learning early than you think

Iwould be curious to know if she lost the six like she got them. Hmmm. Is right. Like I said above that I saw a program on tv about teaching toddler age kids and even alittle earlier to read and in some cases to spell.

My son was very similar. When he was a few days old he seemed to gum things and upon inspection it looked as if he teeth coming through. Although we was told that it's very rare and that it's very uncommon for the teeth to come through early on but his teeth actually came a few months later and it was very difficult to settle him down. My daughter was also similar to my son, although she only had three teeth at first and then the rest suddenly came through.

Hi, Teething at 2 months old..that is pretty early... From my experience,a baby will start teething when he reachs 4-5 months old.some babies even have teething slightly late. It is depend on individuals too. Since your great grandson has early teething,it means he will be able to enjoy more food in early stage. It is good news...

There is nothing weird about. It only shows the lad has a strong constitution. My elder son started turning over before he could hold up his head. He used have his his face against the pillow and we were scared that he would suffocate. After a good two months he was able to lift his head properly and we sighed in relief. And C'mon! He wont Grey before or immediately after collage. That is the time when the parents hair goes Grey.
