Q.

3 Year Old Cutting teeth?

My son has been extremely grumpy, red cheeks not eating well, snot nose etc, I asked him if he is sore and pointed to the back of the mouth where his molars would be and he said yes, its sore.

To my knowledge he was supposed to finish teething at 2 years. Why could he be teething now again?

often development of teeth differs from child to child.
the second molar can erupt at 3 years
