    Caitlyn is teething so bad tonight. The only thing stopping her from screaming and sobbing is my boob and some bum tapping. I decided to look in her mouth to see what's going on and I can litterally see her top left tooth about to break through. I thought they got the bottom ones first?!

    It's normally the bottom teeth, then the top, but each baby is so different. Felicity has her first 4 teeth coming through at once (top and bottom). As you can imagine, life is pretty stressy at the moment!!

    Hope Caitlyn feels better soon.

    PS Caitlyn was on my name list, too. It's such a fab name!

    You wont be able to tell, usually, until right before they cut through.
    I could see Colton's under the skin (couldn't feel them though) about 2-3 days before it cut though.
    You can even see it start to cut the skin if you look closely, you can see all the little ridges come through. It's really neat to check a few times a day and literally see it cut through bit by bit. Although, I imagine it's not to neat for them! :baby:

    Hope she starts to feel better now that some of the pain will be gone!

    Colton got his bottom two, then his top two I-teeth, then his top two front teeth.
    I think his bottom two (beside the bottom front ones.. lol, sorry if thats confusing) are on their way!

    Ryan now has 5 on top and none on the bottom. I wouldn't worry about what order they come through. :) x

    Faith cross-cut when she cut her teeth. If I remember rightly (as we're talking 3 years ago now) she cut her bottom teeth then her top eye teeth came through (she looked like a vampire!) and then her top front teeth. Nothing grew in order! x

    Seths tooth looks about 4 back on the top, I can also see a couple of lumps about four back on the bottom. He's not a happy boy at the moment :(
