    Question Can you help...?

    I have a little wager on with DP.

    DP seems to think that not only can baby be born with teeth but they can get them as early as a few weeks.



    I happen to disagree.

    So the question is - Have you ever heard of this happening? Is it even possible??

    I'm about to go and google it now LOL.

    See what crazy things you talk about when you're sleep deprived!!!

    I was alos born with an eye tooth that also went back up & later reappeared.
    DH says he also had a tooth at birth (but his mum is a fruit loop & may have just said that to be the same as me when I told her about me....)

    My brothers lil baby girl is 2 mths old and has her 2nd tooth cutting through.But they have been told that her teeth are growing slow compared to normal babies, they should start getting then within the first few weeks - this is why they are unsettle alot of the time.
    I feel sorry for mummies who breast feed and bubs has teeth OUCH.
