Mother Shocked By What Her Twins Were Born With

A U.K. woman gave birth to twins. The babies came a little early at 32 weeks but were both healthy. The mother was surprised to discover that both her babies already had teeth in their mouths.

According to the British Medical Journal, babies being born with teeth is a 'rarely reported phenomenon.' Only one in 2,000 babies are born with visible teeth, so the chance of twins both having teeth has not even been calculated.

While the babies are healthy, having teeth at such a young age does raise some concerns. One concern about teeth in infants so young is that those teeth will be properly cared for. It's hard to keep teeth clean in babies so young. The children will see a doctor every six months to make sure they don't develop any dental issues.

Another concern was breastfeeding-- which is exactly what the new mother is doing. So far, she reports no biting problems.

That will no doubt change in a year or so— as any breastfeeding mom will tell you.
