Midwives Surprised By Baby Girl Born With Teeth

Any abnormalities during a pregnancy or birth is usually not a good thing.

Most parents expect things to go precisely as it says in the baby books, but most parents are in fact surprised when a baby is on the way.

This was certainly the case for Samantha Lines and her partner, Jason Doombs who tried for years to get pregnant.

Samantha and Jason were very happy when they finally learned they were having a baby. When Samantha went into labor, her daughter was born via a c-section.  Samantha went through a “long and difficult labor,” but eventually midwives delivered baby Ella-Rose.

Their baby girl named Ella-Rose was born perfectly healthy, however, when she opened her mouth to cry – Samantha’s midwives were stunned by what they saw!

Ella-Rose was born with something very rare – inside her little mouth, on her bottom jaw, were two little white teeth.

According to “the books”, most babies only start teething around six months, but little Ella-Rose was born with teeth already growing in her bottom jaw.

Samantha said, “I was completely delirious with all the morphine and other painkillers. Suddenly a midwife said my baby had two front teeth. It was a complete surprise.”

“Everyone was telling me how amazing it was that my baby had front teeth, but I had very little idea of how rare that is.

“It wasn’t until I came to and somebody told me that it actually sunk in that this was such a unique thing. The doctors have told me that it’s very rare for this to happen.”

Samantha now has to learn to breastfeed a baby with teeth.

She admitted to being nervous about it but is sure it will work out fine. 

 “Her teeth are only small,” Samantha said, “so hopefully it won’t be too painful. I’ve got bottles in case it is too difficult, but it seems fine at the moment.”

Doctors have warned Ella-Rose’s parents that her little teeth may fall out – which could be a choking hazard.

Samantha explained, “I’m not even sure whether or not I should be brushing them or not. They look very delicate, so I don’t know whether I should even be touching them at all.

“It’s just something extra to deal with on top of everything else. You’re trying to learn everything when you’re a new mum, but I need more guidance.”

    My Daughter was born with her two bottome teeth as well it was amazing I could’nt believe it so crazy to think about I did’nt post it but it is true I have pictures somewhere just have to dig them up. breastfeeding was veryhard because my daughter Avangelines teeth were pertruding far more than little Ella-Rose so she cut me open it was difficult the doctor said I needed to get her teeth removed or to bottle feed for safety issues for the both of us it was to dangerous to breastfeed. If the parents need any advice I am more than willing to give all that I have due to this being such a rare condition their is not alot of people to talk to.
