Is it strange that she doesn't have any teeth at 8.5 months?

My dd still has no teeth, she will be 9 mos on the 26th. I am not sure what to think, my 2.5 year old dd had all of her teeth before turning one and has her 2 year old molars already. So is it strange that she doesn't have any teeth and isn't even showing any signs of teething?

  • no cause every baby is different. my mom once knew a Navajo woman that had her baby and he already had 2 teeth..when he was born. so it jus depends on the kid.

  • In my family, babies get teeth after their first b-day. Also, most of us have NEVER has a cavity. It's a good sign IMO. Hooray for safer nipples if you are nursing!

  • My son didn't get his first tooth till he was 9 mos old. When it came in, he got five teeth in just one week. No crying, no fussing, they just appeared.

  • Ok. I was just starting to worry because she has a bunch of health problems and didn't know if this was normal, or something I should be bringing up with her Dr's. Thanks ladies!!

  • Your children sound jsut like mine! LOL My DD had her first teeth come in at 4 1/2 months, with almost all of them in by 1. DS on the other hand just got his first 2 this month (he's 10 1/2 mo). They are just barely poking through still- though they first broke through 2 weeks ago. Pedi. dentist told me that the late teeth come in the better, and to not worry about it.

  • My oldest got one at 11 months and didn't get anymore til 15 months. Number 2 was I think 12 months or so before she got any. The baby is only 2 months, I am hoping he'll wait til he's close to a year too.
