I am curious when did you baby get his first tooth? My baby got his when he was 4 1/2 months. Now at 1 year, he has 7 teeth. 3 on top and 4 below. I am also anticipating when he's other teeth start to appear. Please share your experiences and knowledge regarding this.

Your baby got his 1st tooth by the age of 4,5 months? Wow..that's fast! My son has his first tooth when he was almost 1 year old, lol..kinda late actually, and later more and more tooth coming. But then, it stopped again, and in another months, another tooth came again and again, until now he is 2 years old, almost complete. Not all babies have the same teeth growth, I guess. Some are late, some are not, so no worries :), as long as more teeth are coming. Just keep his teeth clean.

My dentist told me to take my son to him by the time he got 1 year old. But because of this teeth growth delay, I took him to the dentist when he was about 1,5 years old. My dentist said that the earlier, the better. When it comes to clean his teeth, just make sure you don't force him :), and try to have this swallowable toothpaste, although I don't recommend your son to swallow it, lol. Just do it gently, and he will eventually learn. Hope it helps :)

My daughter had her tooth at about two weeks old. She has got a lump in the gum when she is birth and we will wondering what was that and brought her for a check out and was surprised to hear that a teeth is growing. The baby doctor advised us to pull that teeth after it had grown out from that lump but we didn't as she is just two weeks old.

wow, That is fast! Though I have heard of instances that some babies are born with teeth, I have yet to meet one. :) You are the first momma I have encountered having a baby at the earliest month. Was your baby born post-mature? I mean after 9 months? or on schedule?

It varies by the child. my 8 month old son just got his two bottom middle teeth, about 2 weeks ago. The rest should fill in by the time he's two or so.
