  • My daughter was 10 1/2 months before she got her first tooth. By her first birthday, she only had the bottom two. Your baby will get them soon enough. :)

  • You shouldn't worry unless he gets to 18 months and has no teeth. My daughter got her first 2 at the same time when she was 4 months old but her cousin didn't get his first one until he was 13 months old. It just varies from baby to baby. It'll be fine. Enjoy these days, once he starts teething you'll wish for these pain-free and non-cranky times.

  • my daughter got first 2 at 12 months.she is 14 months and still the two!weird huh? her doctor said his kid was the same way and now that he is older his baby teeth are taking forever to fall out and a couple may need to be pulled if they dont fall out soon enough for the big teeth.

  • My nephew didn't get his first tooth until after his first birthday and even now at 7 years old his teeth are "immature" ( his adult teeth still aren't coming through)
