When your baby gets their first tooth do you class them as getting it when you can feel it starting to break through the gums or not until it is actually all through and moving up?
DS has just gotten his first tooth... i first noticed it about 2 weeks ago... i could see the gum splitting and could feel the spiky bits breaking through but it has only all been through and moving up the past few days so not sure when to say he actuall got his first tooth!

When the twins teeth were breaking through I didn't say "oh she has 1 tooth" I just said that it's coming through but it's there, if that makes sense

I didn't say she had a tooth until it broke through and you could see it rather than feel it, of that makes sense?
It's funny now some mornings she wakes up and it's like "holy crap she has another tooth!"
She use to be a bad teether (like me up for 5 hours at night, just thinking about different ways I could hit my head against a wall lol) but now she is older (13 months) they don't seem to bother her and we never know if she is teething lol.

I always say when it breaks through then it's a new tooth. Usually if you can feel it you can see it anyway...it may not be 100% out yet but it aint in the gum anymore is it hehe

A tooth is a tooth, so I count is as soon as it breaks thru and I can just see it and feel it

I counted it as a tooth as soon as it broke the gum or even almost broke the gum and you could see it was there. But then again all 3 of my girls were older when they got their first teeth.
