    Like all new machines, it had a few teething troubles but it is working well now.

    This sentence means that the machines had some troubles at the

    beginning,but later it worked well.right?

    That sounds quite odd if we were to take it literally and that person is a full-grown adult.

    I'm Ana by the way and this is my first post.

    Hi, Ana! Welcome to the forum!

    Luckily, it's not literal in meaning.

    Actually, it wouldn't normally be used that way. It is used to refer to a project of some sort. Example:
    A: How is the project going?

    B: It is having teething problems. (It is having trouble getting started.)
