Baby Teeth is the second album from the dark wave/post-punk band Feeding Fingers, released on January 26, 2009 (2009-01-26). Because Wound In Wall was mostly composed by lead singer, Justin Curfman, in his mid-teens, he decided that Baby Teeth needed to be shorter, tighter, and more a Feeding Fingers album rather than a Justin Curfman featuring Feeding Fingers album."[21]

The inspiration for the name of the album (and title track's lyrics) came to Justin Curfman in a dream: "[t]hese lyrics were inspired by a dream that I had about a beautiful female singer singing to me on a stage. She finished her song, smiled, and I noticed that she still had her baby teeth, making her gums appear grotesquely enormous. And for some reason this sexually aroused me enormously."[21]

Baby Teeth was released to favorable review. This album reached #16 in the Global Gothic Chart[22] and found a place on the Alternative Top 100 in Portugal. This album was also ranked #4 on the Best of 2009 at Gothic Paradise.[23] Mick Mercer also named Baby Teeth as one of the tops albums of 2009.[24]

Despite the critical acclaim, Curfman mentions in a 2010 interview that Baby Teeth was "very dense and bleak and just filled with confusion," and plainly refuses to ever repeat anything like it again.[25]
