Yes, he’s 17 months old and just started getting teeth! I don’t think it’s just a preemie thing either cause my mom said my teeth didn’t come in until I was a year old. They are sorta coming all at once – two on the bottom, two on top. Honestly, before they came I was starting to get a little worried. I’ve heard horror stories about going to the dentist cause they’re impacted. I really take a lot of pride in my teeth (I know, pride comes before the fall) but I’ve never had a cavity. I am really hoping that gene was passed along to Mac. We are going to start good brushing habits now since we finally have something to brush!
He really likes the taste of the toothpaste. Although you can’t see it here he spend most of the time sucking on the end of the toothbrush.
