DD cut her 1st bottom 2 teeth around 5 months (now coming up to 9 months) and I have noticed they really haven't come all the way up - one is better than the other but the other is still 1/2 the size of the one next to it. She has just cut the 1st top tooth but it hasn't come down but I am thinking the bottom ones should be now up? I can't remember with DS, his cut and just grew up.

Just curious as to when & how long they should take if anyone knows. I am at my dentist next week so will also ask him when I see him but Dr Google is not helping me today very much.

No answers here, but DD 8mths just cut her bottom two teeth 3 days ago and they are exposed but not very raised, so I was about to ask about the time frame too, so ladies, what has been the average time frame for your kiddies teeth?

My granddaughter was ages cutting teeth and my daughter asked her dentist and he said - don't worry, they are there and they will come through eventually. She was about 11 months before she cut the first two teeth.

With DS, he cut two bottom teeth the same day at 7mo-ish. They were bumps below the gum in the morning then through in the afternoon. They're fully there now at 9.5mo, and took maybe a  week to look like proper teeth. He then cut top four at 8mo and the took much longer to come through the gum and establish, I'd say a month?
