  • My son is 11 months and he is JUST starting to get his bottom two teeth. Relax and enjoy the fact that he can't bite you yet! They'll come all in due time. No child has ever started kindergarden without teeth!

  • yes, he will get them when his body is ready. Be happy you get to enjoy your little on a bit more, before the teething begins.

  • My doctor told me the later the teeth the better teeth they are my DD is 13 mo old and she only has 6 teeth and she didn't get her first tooth till she was 8 mo old.

  • I would say that if ds doesn't have teeth after he's a year, then you should consult a doctor. But until about a year, he's fine!

  • yep that's fine, my son still doesn't have his teeth, he'll be 12mo on july 8, they are just starting to come in. I think any day now.
