1 year old daughter with no teeth yet....any suggestions to help her out?

My daughter just turned 1 on Jan 18th but she has no teeth yet and her gums show no sign that any are going to pop through anytime soon. Is this common & any suggestions?? (this is my 3rd baby & I never had this prob)

  • My sister's Daughter just got her first tooth she is 13 months now. Honey don't rush it cause my son had a mouth full of teeth at 6 months and he bites me A LOT. And OMG it hurts. I wish he had no teeth at times.

  • My daughter's teeth did not come in until after she was one. Her Ped. told me not to worry unless she didn't have any by the age of 2

  • That seems really late to me too. Does it look like teeth under the gums? I don't know what else to call them but teeth bumps. If not, I would look into it further.

  • My dd got her first tooth at 14 months. I was told that the longer they take to come in, the stronger and healthier they will be.

  • No worries, don't rush it... what I have always been told the longer the teeth take to come in the stronger they will be.

  • Your supposed to take a child to the dentist 6 months after their first tooth or by their 1st birthday which ever comes first, so you should just make an appointment with the dentist where she is one anyway.
