I picked Amber up at the sitters today and she said she wanted to show me something weird....she then opened Amber's mouth and showed me a little white bump clear on the left side in the middle of her gums. She had me run my finger across it and sure enough, it was a little tooth coming through. (she is only 4 months old) This woman is mother of 3 grown children and a grandma herself so I figure she knows what she is talking about, but I want to get some more opinions anyway since this is all so new to me and I really have no idea...it looked to me like the tooth was coming out in the middle of the gum, instead of at the bottom where I assumed I would see a tooth coming...is that normal? She said she thought it was okay and that it would come out at the bottom like normal....I hope so! But what she said she thought was weird was that most babies get their front teeth first and this she said is an eyetooth!!!! I don't have a clue so I thought I would ask those of you with kids if this is normal???? I sure hope nothing is wrong!!!!!!!
