Have your rainbow babies started teethig? How are they handling it? At what age did they start?


I think Jacob is going to be starting early teething. He is 15 weeks and I swear he is starting to teethe already. The last two days he has been chewing on his hands all day long and I know he's not hungry because I will try to feed him and he refuses to eat.

Marsi didn't get her first tooth until she was 8 months old. She went through stages that were like that for MONTHS before a tooth finally popped through. From what I understand, teeth start traveling through the nerves of the gums really early on and it could take weeks or months before they travel far enough up to break through. Usually it is 2-3 days then a break for a while.

Marsi still only has 2 teeth and they are SO adorable...here is a pic from yesterday.

I will have to look in Jax's baby book to see when he got his first tooth...for some reason it felt early. Right now he is working on his 2 year molars.

Eleanor got her first 2 teeth (on the bottom) when she was 7 months old. She was kind of crabby on and off for a couple weeks before they broke through, and she would tug on her ear a lot. She has been doing the same thing for the last couple of weeks and now I can see one tooth ready to break through on the top. She was drooling and chomping like crazy from 3 months on, so I always thought those teeth were ready to show up!

Kieran started teething around six months. And got them around 7 months. His bottom two popped about a week apart. He wasn't too bad of a teether with those though. The top ones are giving him more trouble. But they aren't through yet. Maybe next week

But he certainly could be teething. And the thing about the teeth coming through the nerves of the gums is totally true. Lots of babies teethe harder when the teeth cross the nerves than when they pop through the gums. But Julia (the little girl I nanny for) got her first teeth at 4 months. I remember because it was Halloween and she was a bear. And was normally so happy. We had to stop handing out candy and everyone who came over left because she was so miserable. He next morning when I came over, she had two pearly whites on the bottom. Hence her misery. She was 4.5 months.
