When did your childs first tooth come in?

My son is going to be 9 months and he still doesn't have any teeth. I feel like he has been teething for so long. Just curious how late they can come in.

  • My son was 5 months when he got his first tooth and my daughter was around 7 months. But, I have a friend with a daughter who's 15 months and still does not have one single tooth yet. I have also heard of babies being born with teeth. So really, it's different for every baby.

  • My daughter started teething at 3 months old. The first one didn't pop through until 8 months and she got her second one like a day and half later. Then nothing for a few more month. And then she just got three new ones last month.
