Question: Our son teething at 2months

 Mutant1981 - Thu Mar 20, 2008 3:40 pm

Our new son which is 2 months already has 2 teeth showing, and our 3 year son didn't show one tooth until about 6-7 months. A lot of people say WOW that is really fast for teeth to be coming in at so young yet. There has been no health complications so far. Is this normal?

Children , even in the same family, may start teething at different times, earlier or later. Personally, my children ranged from 6 months old with 8 teeth and 9 months old with only one tooth. I would look for a white tooth bud - upper or lower -that may be under the gum. A tooth bud may still not appear for a couple of months - some children do start teething earlier, some later even in the same family.
