How old was your baby before the first tooth came in?

My 9 month old daughter still hasn't cut any teeth yet. Her cousin (who is 4 days older) already has two teeth. I thought she would have them by now. Just wondering if this is normal. She's my first, so I don't really know what to expect.

  • My daughter was born with one tooth. My son cut his two lower teeth at 8 months.

  • My boys started cutting their bottom teeth around 6 months, and they were fully in by 8 months. If your daughter is drooling a lot then she will be cutting them soon.

  • Every baby gets teeth at different times. what i have learned from my son and nephew (who are three days apart) never compare the two together...sometimes babies are born with teeth when other babies dont get their first tooth til after their first birthday...her teeth will come in when her gums are ready for them to pop through and when they are make sure you have something near by....

  • earliest was 4 months, latest was 8 months. My best friend's son it wasn't until he was 15 months. If you are worried you can see a pediatric dentist. *hugs*

  • 14 months, and at 19 months he only has 5! No worries mama, it makes no difference when they come in.
