  • Normal. They get their teeth anytime up to 2 years.

  • That is normal. Teeth (like other baby milestones) happen at their own time frame-- some babies get teeth early, some come in a bit later. Usually the teeth come in front to back- and the molars are last to arrive around age 2.

  • My son got his bottom 3 teeth between 4 months and 6 months, then we had nothing from 6-9 months. Now he's almost 10 months and he's been cutting in the top two and the bottom 4th.

  • my daughter was 16m before her first tooth broke. her pediatrician said he wouldn't even begin to worry before 18m, and that was just for the first tooth. as with anything though, be sure to mention any concerns with your child's doctor at the next visit.

  • my DD didn't cut her first tooth until she was about 9 mos old and it takes her a very long time to cut her teeth. She is now 28 mos old and still hasn't gotten her last 2 molars on the bottom but I know they are coming b/c she is super whiny and her gums are swollen. Just be patient and they will come when they come.

  • My oldest got her first 2 teeth at 7 1/2 months and then didn't get any more until after she turned 1.  My middle daughter was still completely toothless when she turned 1 (her first one broke through a week later).  They come in when they come in.
