Mum Needs Help: My daughter is 18 months old and this is about her teething. She has cut 4 bottom and 2 top front teeth. But now is cutting her molars! So on the top, she has no teeth coming out other than the 2 front ones at the moment, and the molars are both visible now. Is this normal?

Normal of course. The discomfort is just one of those events of parenting. Be worried only if your child is not drinking for more than a few days.
