  • My son didn't get his first tooth until he was 10 months. I was worried too, but my doctor said "I've never seen a kindergardener that didn't have any teeth, he'll get them don't worry." Sure enough he got four all at once!!

    My family always says that if they're late to get their teeth it means they'll keep them for a real long time. It's probably an old wives tale, but it's still comforting :)

  • my daughter didn't get any teeth until she was 14 months old. then 6 popped thru. and she got them in a weird order too. she got her eye teeth first. i was worried to. the dr said if she didn't have any by 15 months then they'd worry. every kid is different, but she'll get them.
