When did your baby cut teeth.

My son is ten months old and has not cut a single tooth. A nurse told me that when it takes a long time to cut teeth it means they are really healthy. But that just sounds like an old wives tale to me. My older boys starting getting their teeth at 6 months old and had a mouth full by their first birthday. So i was just curious.

  • Our daughter is 8 months and has 2 on the bottom and 4 on the top coming in and 2 more on the bottom so she will have 8 here soon. She started at 3 months teething and got them at 7 months. All babies teeth when its their time.

  • My son cut his first tooth close to his 11 month point. And it was just bam, bam, bam, bam... four teeth in less than a week and a half. He has 3 cutting in right now.

  • My son got hit two bottom teeth one after the other at 5 months then got his fangs at 5 1/2 months. I think from what I heard that babies are just different because a lot of babies take longer, and some get them all fairly quickly.

  • my oldest cut her first on her first bday, and my 2nd cut hers sometime after her birthday. I've also been told they are stronger the longer it takes for them to come in. I don't know how true that is, but I'm sure it is partly because they haven't used them as long as gets who get them younger.

  • My girls were about 8-9 moths before they cut the first tooth, My twins are 10 and a half one has 2 bottom teeth and the other zero. Sometimes I think my 2 yr old is still teething

  • DD took the longest to come in. I think she was 9.5 months. Then after that she got 4 in at once and stayed that way for a couple more months before getting in the rest. She's 2.5 and still is working on her 2 yr old molars.
