The majority of kids are born without these formations. However, medicine known cases when teething babies (with no symptoms) started in the womb.
The symptoms of teething in babies long before mom or dad will be able to detect the cutter. Dairy these structures are called due to the fact that they mostly appear during a breast (or artificial) feeding. It should be noted that the symptoms of teething babies is always different.

The timing of teething
So, you already know what should be the number of milk teeth in children. Some kids can boast the first cutter at the age of three months. While others acquire these formations only at the end of the first year of life. All very individually. However, there are generally accepted timing of teething in babies. Let's consider them.
