My babie has no teeth yet?

i have a one yo and a 9month old. i understand that not all kids grow or do things at the same time as the other. But my 9 month started the drooling and gum pain when he was 4 1/2 to 5 months old like my oldest. Well now hes 9monthes and there are no teeth in sit not even a bump or rough spot in his gums anywhere. Should i be worried or should i giv e him time?

  • My first son got his first tooth at 10 months. My second got his first tooth at around six or seven months. My twin niece and nephew didn't get a tooth until they were 14 months. It can really happen any time and it's nothing to worry about.

  • It can happen at any age. Some get their teethe later then other children do. If you think that it's an issue. Talk to your doctor at your next appointment for you child.

  • My youngest who is only 13 months did not get any teeth until she was almost 12 months. She got her 1st tooth the beginning of July. She started drooling when she was 2 months old. Don't worry she will get them when the time is ready for them to pop out.

  • My first 2 got teeth at 9 months...

    My 3rd, started the signs of teething at about 5 months, but we got nothing until right before her first birthday.

    Give it time. If, by a year, he has no teeth, then talk to the pediatrician. But before that, I wouldn't worry. Enjoy those toothless smiles while you can :-)

  • Don't worry Mama. One of my Children got their first tooth at five months and the other seemed to start teething at about four months but didn' thave one tooth until ten months. I have had a Foster Daughter that didn't have any teeth on her first Birthday. All Children get them at different times.
