Emily Kate got her first two teeth at the same time (4.5 months). (Bottom two incisors). After that, she I guess she felt like 2 teeth were she got 6 (SIX!!) in at the same time a few weeks later. She definitely drooled more and there was a definite increase in spit-up. In fact, we are currently working on 2 more teeth now, and I am beginning to notice the same symptoms...

She will be 10 months on the 23rd, with 8 teeth. Hope that helps!

I think teeth come in differently for every child. Max is 18 months almost and still has the same six teeth he has had for months. I don't see any coming in either. We have had very little pain with his teething, and no drooling, we are so lucky. But I have a feeling the next set of teeth are going to pop out all at once, and we will be in for it.

There is a good picture in my "What to expect in your babies first Year" book that demonstrates the time table for when the teeth come in, I think we are still on schedule, especially if we go by adjusted age.

Here are some links with timetables.
