Order of teeth

My daughter is a late bloomer with her teeth coming in. She has her two bottom teeth at almost 13 months. Are the two top teeth always next? Or do some of the other bottom teeth come in next sometimes?

    Maybe two more bottoms and then the top ones next.

    It goes bottom 2, top 2, 2 more on top, then 2 more on the bottom.

    Victoria, is that ALWAYS the order though? Cuz she's 13 months and still only has her bottom two in front. She's been really fussy and hardly eating, so I think she may be starting to teethe but I don't feel anything in her mouth on top.

    My daughter got her bottom 2 at 6 months then didn’t get more until about that age. She got her top 2, the ones next to those and the 2 next to the ones on the bottom all at the same time

    Not always the order, mine got teeth at all different times. If you are worried, you can always take her to the dentist. They can start going at a year

    It’s not always the order. It is the average. Some babies are born with teeth and some are just late bloomers. My dr said it’s how most babies get teeth but not all.

    It’s super variable, you are going to get hundreds of answers!! For us it was her two bottom front, then her bottom right lateral incisor. Then nothing for months. Then her top two front teeth, then nothing again for a couple months, then both top lateral incisors and her bottom left lateral incisor all at once. Then again nothing for months and now at 15 months her bottom right first molar has broken through and her left bottom first molar is trying real hard. From here on out I will only figure it out by observing while brushing her teeth because I’m DONE sticking my finger in her mouth!!😱😳. Here’s an approximate guide that someone posted on here and saved. These are averages and not exact! Good luck mama!

    Our little one started teething at 2 mo on the dot. Two bottom teeth came in one affer the other two whole months later, at 4 months. Starting at 5.5 or 6 months, she started teething ...what appears to be first molar? On her left side, and then her right -- now both sides.... But still no teeth yet or 'nubs' at months 8. Some days no teething, some days extreme teething. She's fine once they start erupting. Thanks for the charts, very helpful!
