  • Its definitely not too early to start, but uncommon that one pops through that early! My little girl is showing signs of teething now 4.5 months, but i think itll be a while off, rosy cheeks, dribble and chewing anything and everyting is the signs we have!

  • My second got his first tooth at 3 months. Quite early but not uncommon.

  • Not at all lol. My boys were both early teethers. My first born was 4 weeks premi and had 2 teeth the day he turned 4 weeks old so he was meant to be born with 2 teeth! My 2nd son had 2 teeth when he was 6 weeks old. Generally the earlier they teeth the later the walk because of the off balance. Both my boys had their 2 year molers coming through around their 1st birthdays than had their whole set of teeth and started loosing their baby teeth at 4 yrs old.

  • All bubs are different. My sister was born with teeth! So teething at 11 weeks, while early, is not out of the question.

  • Babies can be born with teeth… The books etc say around 4 months but all babies are different. So 11 weeks your baby can get teeth

  • All babies are different with teething. Some are very “early” and other “late” and some are worth with teeth. So no, 11 weeks is not too early.

  • any time really, there are some babies born with teeth!

  • mine has started at three months

  • My little one started teething when she was 11 weeks old.

  • I’m sure my baby started teething from 2 or 3 months but I didn’t see teeth for a while. It could have been coming up from the gums

  • Teething can start at any time. it’s not uncommon for the teeth to start to show and then go back in the gums.

  • Its never o young for a kid to be teething, it also seems to last forever as soon as one is fully through the next starts moving its way through ..

  • Nope, my eldest got her first tooth at 11 weeks (bad mother that I am wasn’t even the first to notice it, my mother-in-law was) – my youngest got her first tooth at about 13 weeks

  • No teeth can come through at any time, my husband was born with two teeth!
    I hope your bubbas is coping alright. :-)

  • I have a 12 week old baby and she is teething. It breaks my heart to see my so little one to be uncomfortable. Much earlier than my other daughter.
