I was wondering if the idea of a baby being born without teeth, and more specifically the painful process of teething, has been discussed by the Torah or addressed by any Rabbis?
Didn't see a source for this anywhere, so don't think it's authoritative.
In Kabbalistic thought, there's the concept that some things draw nourishment from higher things. With the concept of חנוך לנער על פי דרכו, if the baby is meant to draw nourishment from the mother, God made it easier for him.
Note: without the Kabbalistic part, Answers.com says the same thing- that babies have no teeth so they can nurse.
