Anyone know how many molars kids get with their baby teeth? My daughter is in agony today as she is sprouting 2 at the same time. Just wondered how much more fun I have to look forward to.

I was just at the dentist today and asked this same question. The hygienist said that babies will get two sets of molars for a total of 8 (in total they will have 20 baby teeth). One set of molars usually comes between one and two years and the other set between two and three years.

I can relate, our daughter has recently cut three of her first set of molars and she has not been very happy about it to say the least.

Did the dentist happen to mention how many molars are in each set?

I just edited to clarify. There are 4 molars per set, one in each quadrant of the mouth.
