Baby Teething Schedule

Baby Teething Schedule

Although each child cuts teeth at unique times, all babies roughly follow the same teething schedule. Primary teeth, or baby teeth, usually erupt through the gums in a predictable order. In general, baby teeth will come in for most children during the following age ranges:

  • 6 to 10 months: Two lower central incisors (bottom front)
  • 8 to 12 months: Two upper central incisors (upper front)
  • 9 to 13 months: Two upper lateral incisors (upper side)
  • 10 to 16 months: Two lower lateral incisors (lower side)
  • 13 to 19 months: First molars
  • 16 to 22 months: Two upper canines (cuspids)
  • 17 to 23 months: Two lower canines (cuspids)
  • 23 to 33 months: Second molars

The exact order and timing of teething may vary depending on the particular child. For example, my daughter got her bottom central incisors first followed by one of her upper lateral incisors and then her two upper central incisors. However, the baby teething schedule is a general guide that parents can use to predict the order in which a child will get his or her baby teeth.
