Evie's been drooling non stop since early December. She's been showing pretty much all the other signs and symptoms of teething for a while, too. But no sign of teeth buds until yesterday. Yesterday I felt in her mouth and had to take a look.. she has a tooth on the brink of erupting. But it's not a lower center. It's also not a top center. Not even a lateral! It's a freaking canine! Everything I've read suggests that the order "should" (but not always) goes lower centers, upper centers, upper laterals, lower laterals, then molars and THEN canines. I suppose there is a chance still that it will go back up into hiding (it's an upper) and wait until the proper time, but it's so close to popping through that I feel if I push hard enough on the gums that it will break through.
Anyone else deal with out of order teething before? I'm tempted to call my dentist today and pick her brain about it. This is crazy!
it was out and went back in????? I had no clue that they could emerge and then go back! Sheesh!
My cousin's baby has that exactly! Her right canine came in first and now she's working on her left canine and her bottom middle teeth (the other canine is just about to poke through so that'll come first).
My girls got their teeth in order but ds1 got one of his bottom middle teeth and then one of his top middle before the other bottom one. Like a little jack-o-lantern Isaiah is teething but it's his bottom middle ones coming so his will probably come in order

I showed it to my doctor when we went for her 6 month check up and she laughed and said "Janelle, did you forget to read her that section in the baby development book?" Baby girl is playing the unique card on us. Wants to be special. Make sure we don't forget that she's different.
I saw this yesterday in Jacob's mouth.... Think he might be unique too!
Happily married to Michael since 5.1.10
