Why are some babies born with teeth?
why are some babies born with teeth?
It's true that newborns rarely have teeth but they are frequently very loose and often have to be removed. Babies usually begin to erupt teeth around 6 months of age but it's considered "normal" for teeth to erupt several months earlier or later than that.
