  • It's fine. Some are born with a couple of teeth, some turn one with no teeth.

  • I read it's normal for teething to start between 4-7 months. They say some kids can even take up to a year. My son is 6 months and just got his first one 2 days ago, so at 7 months I wouldn't worry about it. Just enjoy not having to deal with a cranky baby that you can do nothing about because it's not much fun.

  • None of the 3 kids I have had teeth until 11 months. I know some people who's kids didn't have teeth until after a year. It'll be ok! :)

  • It's fine. My son is 8 months. He seems to teethe, but there is no sign of teeth coming in any time soon.
