I just felt in 4.5 month old's mouth and her 2 bottom teeth are coming in. This totally shocked me! For some reason I thought that you should start solids sometime around when teeth come in, is this correct or there is no connection? I felt like I wanted to wait closer to 6 months to start.
Teeth have nothing to do with when solids should be introduced. They don't use their first teeth for eating anyway - chewing is done with molars, which won't be in until much later, and first foods should be able to be gummed instead of chewed.
My DS and DD both were early teethers, around 4-5 months, and both started easing into solids very slowly around 6 months.
Don't worry too much about it. My son started teething at 3 months and by 6 months had 7 teeth. He showed next to no interest in food until 6 months, though and we're just starting him on solids now at 7 months.
