  • VERY normal, most of mine were very late with thier teeth but one didn't get any until 2 years old...dentist kept assuring me that they would come in. I wasn't so sure........they did :).

  • Mine didn't get her first tooth until she was a year old and they came in slowly after that...yours is worlds ahead of where mine was at that age...no need for concern.

  • Honestly. the later the better.. We tell families not to worry--teeth will erupt. If they take longer all the better, it allows the jaws to grow a little longer--ideally space between baby teeth is good.

  • So far all of my kids are late bloomers, my DD didn't get her first tooth until the day after her 1st birthday my 1st DS was about a week before his 1st birthday.
