  • Dont worry mom, each child will teeth at different ages some as early as 3 months some as late as 1 year.

  • It has nothing to do with gender. And there is no set age for teeth. Some kids are born with teeth and some don't get any until they are one year. I wouldn't even worry yet.

  • i just took my son for a well-visit on monday. and the pediatrician said teeth can come in from birth to 2 years of age.

  • I don't think gender really matters much, and age doesn't really either. The AVERAGE age is around 7mos, but it's just that, an average.
    My son popped his first tooth at 6mos, but he's still workin on gettin it all the way in, and working on #2.
    Don't worry yet, your son has plenty of time to his teeth in!

  • dont rush it, the later the better my daughter got her 1st tooth when she was 1 yr old the doctor sd its better if they get them later so they will be off the bottle and you dont have to worry about tooth decay.
