  • It's normal. Every child has their teeth in their own pace and time. I used to worry about everything with my DD, is she walking fast enough, is she teething fast enough. Trust me, he will do everything in his own time. :)

  • normal. My son's doctor said that the longer it takes for their teeth to come out the healthier thier teeth will be. I don't know if it's true or not though.

  • Its normal and if you are concerned speak to his pediatrican. My daughter only had 2 teeth when she turned one. Nows shes 3 with a full mouth of beautiful pearly whites.

  • I was 18-month-old when my first teeth started to come out. Until that time I had no teeth and no hair. I am quite fine and happy today.:)
    Every children have their own biological clock. He will get his teeth when he needs them:) My mom was that lucky I had all of my teeth out in two months. Teething is a pain in the a** for the children and for the parents as well. Don't ask for it early.

  • Totally common. All 3 of my kids got teeth at 11 months. Some kids are even later than that.

  • My almost 15 month old just got her first tooth poking through and my other DD was almost 2 before she got teeth. It's very normal.
