  • My daughter cut her first tooth at 10.5 months old and it was her only tooth until around 13 months old lol. My Pedi says that the later they come in the stronger the teeth are and the less chance for any tooth decay, etc, because if they come in late babies usually don't go to sleep with the bottle in their mouth etc, and if the do it's a lot shorter than if they start teething at 4 months old. :)

  • My son is only 6 months... but no teeth yet. But some kiddo's don't have teeth even by a year. My friends daughter just got her first teeth this week and she is 9 months.

  • Every child will be different. Just a lovely genetic quirk LOL.
    All my children got their first teeth at around 8 months(give or take a week).

    My sisters and I....11 mths before we got our first tooth.

  • Our son didn't get any teeth till he was 9 mos old. Then he got 5 all in one week. Every baby is different so maybe yours is like mine and is just a "late bloomer"!

  • There is nothing you have to worry about.

    Every pediatrician tells you, that babies get their first tooth at around 10months. Some sooner, some later.

    Enjoy that teeth-free-smile as long as it lasts. Hihi. I sometimes miss it :P

    The more teeth my daughter got, the more i realized that she is getting older now and becoming a big girl already.

  • My daughter got her first tooth the week before her first birthday. She got a second two days later, and a third another two days later. My son was 10/11 months when he got his as well. I think it was July, that would be 11 mos.

  • My son was just over 15 months old when he got his first tooth and then they all popped up at once.
