Baby Teething Age
The average age a baby starts teething is between 6 and 10 months. However, some might start earlier and some might start later, depending on many factors.
The first teeth to keep an eye out for are the two bottom front teeth known as the incisors (they all generally come in pairs). The order and age of appearance of baby teeth usually follows this timeline:
- At 5 to 7 months: lower center incisors
- At 6 to 8 months: upper center incisors
- At 9 to 11 months: upper lateral incisors
- At 10 to 12 months: lower central incisors
- At 12 to 16 months: first molars
- At 16 to 20 months: canines
- At 20 to 30 months: second molars.
