A mom says even hospital staff were stunned when her son was born with teeth.
TikTok mom Jordan Bloss shared footage of her newborn son with several bottom teeth. Stanford Medicine Children’s Health says natal teeth — i.e., teeth present at birth — usually aren’t fully developed and have weak roots. They’re also relatively uncommon and found in 1 in 2,000 births.
The mom added in the comments that the baby boy is now 8 months old and hasn’t developed any new teeth yet.
“Crazy to think of him teething in my belly though!” she said.
The video received 17.3 million views and 2.5 million likes on TikTok.
“My son was born with teeth, so was his sister. The odd one in our family is our son who wasn’t born with a tooth,” a person commented.
“Woah, this is interesting. Don’t think I’ve heard of this happening before,” a user said.
“WHOA! I’ve never seen this before!” another wrote.
“My oldest was born with those 2 bottom teeth too,” a TikToker replied.
“My last two babies were teething before 6 months and my aunt thought I was crazy,” someone added.
