  • 17 months.

    My pedi said they would start doing testing if nothing showed up by 18 mos. It was a little nervewracking!

  • My dau got her 1st tooth at 6 mos! She was the earliest of my 3 children to cut her 1st tooth. I would ask your Dr. & possibly a children's dentist.

  • As long as they are cutting them by 18 mos then there is no need to worry. BTW there is a correlation between early teething and early puberty. The later they cut teeth the later they start puberty. That is a good thing. My DD cut her first tooth at 9 mos, my niece (we are adopting) cut hers at 2-3 mos (she developed early in many other aspects as well).

  • My first two cut their first tooth right around their first youngest cut 4 at about 7 months. The others are correct about testing at 18 months...but even then it is usually just xrays to make sure there are teeth there.

  • Son: got his first two at 4 months old

    Daughter: got her first one at 11, almost 12 months old

    Our doctor told me with her that as long as they had at least one tooth by 13 months there was nothing to worry about. I would make an appointment or call about this.
