  • My ODD got her first tooth at one! They say the later the better. My YDS got his first tooth at 10 months

  • My daughter got her first four at 10.5 months. and by 1 she had 8. She is now working on her first molar at 14.5 months. They do say the later the better for 1.--their teeth, not to get damaged by the bottle nipple or milk sitting in their mouths and 2.--because they don't get as fussy. So be glad! My daughter has never been fussy or cranky really over her teeth . . . except maybe one time, but to be honest, I still don't know what that night was all about!

  • The dentists love it when they get them late. : ) Less time for damage to be done to them. I've know some children to not get their first tooth until they were over a year old. They will come in.
