  • I would say that all babies get teeth at different ages, my son has a full mouth of teeth and has since he was 9mths.

  • yes. all babies are different. some babies don't get teeth until after their first birthday and some have even been born with teeth.

  • yep :) it's normal

    BTW do you use Orajel? it's been proven to actually toughen gums making it harder for the teeth to come through.

  • My son didn't get his first tooth until 8 months. He will be 1 year in two weeks and has three now with his 4th just starting to come in. Don't worry. I've heard that the later the teeth come in, the healthier they are.
