Q.

1st tooth

Hi Doc,

My LB is 11months today and he is teething, so 4 teeth are cutting through but only is one is showing so far and at the top. I heard that if he bites you with them(top teeth), the wound wont heal and they poisinous.

Is that true ?
I think babies normally start with bottom teeth

This is not true. The bottom teeth usually appear first but sometimes when children are rather late with their teething as with your baby the top and bottom ones all come through at the same time.
