    First Tooth...
    sdadkin posted:
    My DS2 is 5 and a half months old and he got his first tooth yesterday! My DS1 didn't get his first tooth until he was over 8 months old.

    We tried our first baby fruit last night- Bananas! He loved it! He still hasn't quite got the hang of eating yet though. He basically just keeps sticking out his tongue and licking it up. It's really funny to watch.

    That is great! My little guy will be 5 months on Monday! I have been thinking he is going to cut a tooth soon. He drools soo much and put everything in his month and chews on it constantly. I did start him on fruit, cearal and veggies last week not all at once lol! And it is soo funny to watch them!
    Have you ever heard of a baby having diaper rash as a sign of their first tooth coming in?? My LO has diaper rash and the daycare says he will be getting a tooth soon....go figure!

    No, I have never heard about the diaper rash thing. Mason didn't have a diaper rash when he got this tooth. Every baby is different though. It sounds like your son is getting ready to have some teeth really soon too!

    Mason actually has a second tooth coming in right next to the first one. Everything seems to be happening so fast with him!
