Did you know that baby teeth have an order of appearance? I sure didn’t, until I found this picture here explaining how and when babies get teeth:
First of all the teeth appear in pairs. Pair numbered 1-1 comes first, then the pair numbered 2-2 and so on. There is also a time frame for teeth appearance: first four pairs erupt in the first year, pairs numbered 5 and 6 – from 12 to 18 months, pairs 7 and 8 – from 18 to 24 months and pairs 9, 10 after the baby is 2 years old.
I think this chart is great! Eric is teething and in so much pain, I find it very hard to comfort him, so naturally it made me wonder is there light at the end of the tunnel. Well, there is – he is 8 months old and we’ve got the first 3 pairs, which means one more to go and we’re done for this year!
