Couple of questions
Reply with quote

Larkin got her two bottom teeth and her top left has ruptured thru and the other is trying. Tonight I put my hand in her mouth to keep her tongue down while giving her meds. She knows that if she blows rasberries when she sees the syringe she can push the med out her mouth! I felt the tip of an upper molar! Just a little piece of it and on the other side I can feel the other one. I wonder if that little tip will just be it for a while. Can you all post how teeth came in for you on our little ones.

And another quickie. Her appetite is in the crapper. She is getting enough calories because I give her formula and am now adding in whole milk. But if I give her a cookie she puts in her mouth and then down it goes. NOW WHO DOESN'T EAT AN OREO I ASK YOU??????????? She just isn't interested and I don't push it but is this common with our kids? Yesterday she ate half a small jar of oatmeal with pears. I was in heaven. She will eat off and on which I suppose is normal but she wouldn't eat her birthday cake or her cupcake. She aint right I'm telling ya....aint right.

Megan's teeth all seemed to come in at once right after her 1st birthday (bottom ones 1st along w/ top molars)...so it seems Larkin maybe on the same schedule. We used Huntington teething tablets and she loved them and didn't fuss much! Her appetite did decrease for a while there but she picked up soon after...Megan didn't eat her 1st birthday cake either! LOL!
Good luck!

Eliza's teeth were bottom two, top two, top two molars and now bottom two molars. We were shocked too when we felt that top molar. I am hoping there is enough space for the other teeth that need to come in.

Now Eliza does have a sweet tooth - loves ice cream. But i have heard that some people with Ds don't like sweets. Hey, I think in the big picture it's a good thing (also since sweets are my #1 addiction and i have the sugar belt around the middle to prove it!)

Believe me, Carson has not missed too many meals. That boy loves to eat. He got the top 2 and bottom 2 about the same time. Then he started getting 1 next to the bottom on the right side, the right side top, then the top molor on each side and then the bottom next to the middle. He has 4 completely in and 5 almost completly in. Bring Miss Larkin down here to play with Carson and he will show her how to chow down.

Angela's first tooth was a top front, at around a year. It's the only tooth she had for months THAT WE KNEW OF! Then around 18 months she was screaming at the dr. office and there was a molar back there..all the way in already. Then she got one bottom front, then another molar. The rest came in in just as sporadic of an order.

Now at 10 she was just seen by the orthodontist to determine what our next step is, if anything. She is missing all the permanent molars on one side. The babies are still there, but how long they will last is hard to tell. Since there is nothing behing them to deteriorate the roots, they could last years, or one year. The fact that she doesn't like to chew on that side tells us they probably don't feel stable and that she'll need to have them pulled before too long. Then she'll need false teeth there. Yippee!

Sorry, but I'm no help about the teeth. Olivia does not like sweets, and her "typical" brother has absolutely no interest in cookies, candy, cake, or any other sweets! They don't take after me!!! Isn't a grandma supposed to spoil their grandchildren with candy?!? LOL Olivia is a good eater, but she is very limited in what she likes. Her father says, "if it's red she'll eat it". In other words, any pasta that has a red sauce. Both Olivia and her brother love salty things - popcorn, chips, crackers....

Matt got his bottom front ones first, then 2 bottom molars. Then came top 2 front teeth, then 2 top molars. Then he knocked out one of his bottom front ones! Since then he's added 4 more molars - and that's it!!! So he's got a grand total of 11. Then again he was 20mths when he got his 1st!

And Hannah seems to be following in his footsteph - 16mths, and not a hint of a tooth!!!

And PS, Leah, Andy's still got some of his baby teeth - and they're still going strong!!!

Daniel got the bottom 2 first, at about 6 months. The top 2 followed shortly after that. Then nothing for months. The 2 top next to his front teeth have been trying to come down for months, it's swollen, but nothing is popping through. He just recently got a 3rd on the bottom and 2 molars have broken through on the right side. So at 16 months, he has 5 that are totally in and 2 molars that have broken through but at still cominmg through.

As far as eating, Daniel just recently started with spitting certain things out. Since the molars are in the process of coming in and his gums are really swollen, I've noticed that where he once rejected smooth stuff...he is now opting for that and not wanting to chew as much. He's always preferred food over the milk.

Oh, and not to change the subject but there's been lots of talk of Carson and Larkin's wedding. Daniel is VERY interested and would like a fair shot at Miss Larkins hand in marriage some day. Wink

Kennedy's second tooth was a molar... and her 3rd was too I believe.
As of now she has her 4 front top teeth, her two front bottom teeth, and 8 molars!! Go figure!! But hey, it's Kennedy's world and she's not going to conform and grow teeth like everyone else, that would be WAY too easy! Wink

elias got one new teeth every 1 month since he was 9 months, he had 8 teeth to past july when he was 17 months

when the last tooth wasnt completly out started poping out a molar, and 2 weeks later the other molar. thank god he doesnt cry at all, he is such a good boy, a little fever sometimes, only with one molar he had a little diarrea

but in elias case the molars came out pretty quickly, he has 4 molars and apparently again in a week or so the other tooth will come out.

so at 19 months he has 8 (4 down and 4 up) teeth and 4 molars (one in each side)

and about cookies... yes, my boy just love cookies, candies, cakes, everything, but right now he doesnt like things went i give it to him, he just needs to grab them from the plate or box... so im so happy bc after he will eat everything anytime, and now he has more control on his food. =)

I think it's really interesting how our kid's teeth come in. Seems to a pattern of sorts with timing and age being the variable.

I am off to see if they sell toliet paper and newspaper flavored food. She will put that in her mouth and eat it! (still want that shot at her Daniel? She would be easy to feed!)

I really didn't have any problems with Nolan teeth coming in! To tell the Truth I hardly remember! And he has a mouth full! I asked his father to check last week! I wouldn't dare stick my finger in there! LOL

However the eating was a whole different thing! Nolan would not eat very much and what he did eat was shocking! Nolan loves Hot and Spicy food! The more flavor the better! I always contributed it to his Fathers genes (spanish) But I recently heard from a ST that when you have Low muscle tone in the face and mouth, that the taste buds are also affected! Which I can see why it would take a heavy flavor to like the taste. I don't know how true it is because Nolan also likes the taste of paper (newspaper, envelopes, cards, Etc..) and none have any spices added! LOL...Interesting though!

Well, we had a check up today. I thought Cameron was cutting a large molar, but it is actually 2 teeth coming in the same spot. One in the front of the gum and one behind it. Just have to wait and see how that turns out. Other than that he has 2 crooked bottom teeth that were filed down since they were so sharp and causing a sore under his tongue.

As far as the cookie - Cameron is 18 m and he still will not eat something like a cookie that is whole. But, if I break it up into little pieces he will eat it himself.

Abby's teeth have all come in in pairs. The two bottom teeth, then the two top teeth, the first year molars (all four), the second year molars (all four), and now we are working on the eye teeth (all four). She didn't cut her bottom teeth until she was 14 1/2 mo.

As for food, Abby too was very picky. She too didn't eat her first or second year cakes. I am hoping that this year she will Very Happy

Let me know if you find any! Charlie loves to grab newspaper, paper towel, anything made of paper, and "nurse" it, rip it, lick it, chomp it!!! Laughing

Still no teeth for Charlie at 9 months, although one of the two little bumps on the bottom front is growing...

teeth - Janna's started coming in around 10 mos.
started with 2 bottom front,
then 2 top front,
2 bottom molars,
then 2 top molars,
and now she's got #9 through and #10 trying to come through beside her top front teeth.

and there was a time that she rather eat paper, bibs, clothes, etc. far better than milk or anything else. but after 1st heart surgery she's always eaten well, EXCEPT when cutting a tooth - she backs away some then but still enjoys paper, strings, velcro on bibs, etc. oh, and i must not forget the TAGS - any kind of tag on anything - she loves to eat tags the best.

she's a picky eater but what she likes, she eats well.

she does like vanilla ice cream and i recently found she'll eat a Hershey bar - LOL, if i'd let her have one - LOL. she does seem to favor salty over sweet though.

Brock got his front two bottom teeth first at about 10 1/2 months. His top two are just coming in and look huge! I think I can also feel something on the right back side too.

He eats well - and likes bread crackers, spaghettie, veggies, - pretty much anything.

Good luck Miss Larkin Very Happy

Avery's came in practically all at once too. First the bottom two and one top. Then the top ant two sides. Next she added two molars at one time. and then another two molars. She was super fussy for about two weeks and her appetite definately decreased. She has about twelve teeth now and her appetite has picked up again. It is an odd pattern, and I feel sorry for the baby with all the molars coming in at one time!

Her mouth hurts Amy. She's not eating because it hurts to chew. Try soft foods..soups, yougurt, chewy cookies. Austin refuses to eat when he's sick or cutting teeth. Vegie soup is really a life saver.
