Growth and Development
Answers
There is a great individual difference between infants concerning teething. The first tooth can come in anytime between 3 to 15 months; with an average age of 4 to 7 months for most infants.
The first teeth to pop up are usually the two bottom front teeth (central incisors), followed by the four upper teeth (central and lateral incisors). Your toddler's first molars, the wider teeth in the back of the mouth, will probably start to appear by the time he turns 1.

The last teeth to appear are the second molars, lying in the very back of the mouth on the top and bottom. They are usually there when the child turns 2. Between ages 1 and 3, your child will grow his full set of 20 teeth. His permanent teeth will start coming in around age 6.
 
You need to know that
  • Teeth are not all straight at first. They usually straighten out over time.
  • If your child still doesn't have any teeth by 15 to 18 months, a visit to the pediatric dentist is a must.
  • The molars are often much more painful because they are bigger and wider. Sometimes, a fluid cyst appears over the unerupted molar. The situation corrects itself when the tooth breaks through and pops the cyst. This may be accompanied by a mouthful of blood.

Soft spot is a gap where your baby’s skull bones come together. It helps protect your baby’s brain by allowing the skull bones to shift and cushion the impact when they’re squeezed during delivery.

 

Although most parents are afraid from how weak it feels, the truth is that the soft spot protects your baby from injury. What really happens is that the soft spot cushions and protects, making the skull function like a helmet during common minor falls.

 

The anterior fontanelle doesn't close up until 9-18 months of age (by two years maximum).

Generally this is normal. Your baby is redirecting some of the blood from his hands and feet to his torso to keep his vital organs warm . If his hands are cold, place your hand on his chest to see whether it feels like it's a comfortable temperature. If so, he's fine. But if his chest feels cold or his skin has a bluish tint to it, wrap him up tightly, put a hat on his head to help him retain heat, and call your doctor.
