  • Nothing to worry about. My DD didn't get her first until 11 months and then they came 4 at a time.

  • Don't worry. I know kids who were born with teeth. My son was done teething by about a year old. He would get 4 teeth at a time. I think he was between 6-9 months when he started. My cousins middle son didn't have more than 3 teeth at a year old. She works for a dentist and he said kids teeth at different rates, lose teeth at different rates, just like anything else they do.
