One of the earliest milestones your baby will have during the first year of life is when they get their very first tooth. However, teething can be scary for first-time parents and especially when a baby becomes irritable or cranky as the tooth tries to push through the gums. When to Expect That First Tooth? Generally, the first tooth comes through around age six months, but this can vary considerably from three months to 14 months.
