  • It's fine every child is different. My son had his first at 5 mo and was eating corn on the cob for his first b-day. My daughter didn't get her first tooth till she was 10 months, she has teethless b-day pics! lol My other daughter is 6 mo and still is gummy!

  • All babies are different. My friend's baby got her first tooth at 12 months and I've heard of babies actually born with teeth. It's all "normal." :)

  • No problem! My cousin's kids never got teeth until after their first birthday.
