Apparently, all babies are different in thier development. My 2 1/2 year old got her first tooth when she was exactly one year old. But I swear, she started teething as soon as she turned 4 months old. My 11 month old just got her first tooth. I have a friend whose baby is 7 months old and has 2 teeth!! And another friend in Nevada, whose baby didn't get her first tooth until she was almost 2 years old! So, no worries! :)

yeah, they get teeth during such a wide range of time. I have twins and my son just cut his 1 year old molars and is cutting eye teeth already (for a total of 12 teetch) whereas his TWIN sister only has 4 teeth. I agree - treasure this toothless time, for the biting shall begin soon enough ;-)

First off...HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!! My Daughter's birthday is today as well! Another 1 year old. As far as her development, she received her first two teeth around 6 months and just now getting her two top teeth poking out. I wouldn't worry about your baby's teeth. Some babies develop faster than others. My friends baby started walking at 8 months, and my daughter just started last week. It's all normal. Enjoy your baby's first birthday!! We are going to CeasarLand!!

My daughter turned on on the 13th and just barely has her two bottom teeth. As nice as it is for your baby to not have pain from teething and I've heard better teeth in the long run, it can be hard when they do cut teeth and are older because they tend to be way more irritated then if they would have gotten them when they were really young. I am not looking forward to my daughter teething because now she screams when she is in pain. Not fun at all. Good luck.

That is very normal..My daughter turned 1 on the 2nd,she started teething when she was only a few weeks old but didn't get her 1st tooth until after 6 months. Her first 8 teeth came in with no problem,she didn't fuss at all,just loved chewing everything. But now at only 1 she has 4 molars all coming in at the same time and it hasn't been fun at all,her gums are huge and red in the back, baby orajel and tylenol somewhat help. I wish her teeth would have came in a little slower

My daughter turns 1 on August 30th and her first tooth just started coming through today. I was starting to worry a little myself, and then out of the blue, there it was! So hopefully your daughter will not have too much trouble either. My doctor told me the same thing someone else posted, which is that they don't worry unless they have no teeth at 18 months. Then they will start looking into it. No worries! :)

My daughter turned 1 last week and has 0 teeth. We have been to an endocrinologist because of a growth issue. Anyways the endocrinologist said that if she doesn't have teeth by 15 months then you should have it checked out . Basically if your child does not get teeth by a certain age they will want to do 2 blood tests ( which of course we had done) one is for the thyroid and the other is for anemia. Both of my daughters test for these came out good, so im guessing her teeth will be a little delayed and theres no issue. All kids are different and develop differently so i would give it a few months and see what happens :)

I think the best advice is to count your blessings.. However, as a first time parent I worry about everything. So if you are really worried talk to your provider at your 12 month check up. Or you can schedule a appointment with the dentist. Either will be able to answer your questions. They do an X-Ray to make sure he has teeth. Good Luck

so my ped. told me that no teeth by one is normal, but my daughter just turned one yesterday and she has 8 teeth and she thinks that biting my clothes are fun, she also bites stuffed toys and puts holes in them. Teething is not fun, i read that if we went through what babies went through teething, we would kill ourselves because it's so painful. Her time will come, don't rush baby teeth are difficult to take care of :)
I don't think you need to worry just yet. A friend of mine is a dental assistant and she told me if there is no teeth by 18 months ask to have a dental xray to make sure the teeth are there. Talk to your pediatrician about your concerns or if you want, a referral to a pediatric dentist. Both could ease any concerns.
My daughter is 1 and only has 2 teeth which was why I asked her about the teeth a few months ago.

Don't even worry about it, all children are different, mine also started late but now if I look there is one more. I also asked my dentist when my boy wasn't showing any signs of teeth if it's normal he just laughed and said he had the same problem with one of his children and he worried so bad that he took her to his rooms and x-rayed her teeth so see if there is anything! He said that the later they get teeth the easier it is, don't know if it's true! Don't stress we as moms has enough to worry about!

Daisy was born August 18th and also hasn't cut her first tooth. I don't think there is anything to do but wait. They'll come in when they are ready. I feel like she has been teething since she was 4 months old. It would be nice if she would get a few teeth, but they say that they are healthier the longer they stay down there so I'm hoping there is some truth to that.

I had this issue when my son was at his six month checkup. He didn't have any teeth. And suddenly he was popping them up monthly. My doctor said that if he didn't have any by 1 year that we would worry about it. She said we might have to take him to surgery and cut them so they would pop thru.. I am so glad that he got them on his own.

my daughter turns 1 on August 17th too!! She has no teeth. My oldest got them at 13 months. My dr. says there is nothing to worry about, if she doesn't have teeth by 15 months then she well recommend a dental checkup to make sure the teeth are under the gums. Just relax, it will be okay.

I have a friend who's daughter didn't have any teeth or hair at one. The Dr. told her it was genetic since the same thing happened to her. My daughter is one and has 8 teeth and another coming in, maybe more. She is a wonderful girl but as soon as a tooth starts coming in she is up every 2or 3 hours crying in pain. Otherwise, she sleeps all night. So you are lucky in a way,

I thought the same thing with my daughter. She turned 1 yesterday and she barely got her two bottom teeth in a couple weeks ago. I was wondering what was taking so long and my mother in law told me that her kids didn't get their teeth in till AFTER they turned a year. So try not to worry too much! Those little teeth are on their way!

Omg teething can definitely be a pain! My son didn't have any either until like a week ago and he finally has one but it was so horrible while he was teething! But I've also heard that the longer the teeth stay under the gums the healthier they'll be. I wouldn't worry about it right now though as long as she's eating fine and everything.

well those vibrating toys that they are ment to chew on helps to grow the teeth my sone had one and his first 2 came in like not even a week after having it and ive heard from other moms that they have toys like that and their children had the same thing, but honestly dont push for teeth to come befor they are ready let your child get hers when shes ment to because once the teeth come so does the biting especially when they are teething

My daughter just turned 1 a week ago and only has 2 teeth, which she has had since about 5 months old. When I asked the dr. about it at her checkup he said it was normal and the longer it takes for them to come in the better and stronger they are because the body has had longer to make the enamal stronger! I hope he's right because it seems like she has been teething forever:(

My son will be one the 19th and he only has 2 teeth. I feel like he has been teething forever but nothing is breaking through.. It can be a really hard time especially when night time rolls around! I love teething tablets and Tylenol and if he is having a REALLLLY bad night I give him 1/2 teaspoon of benadryl. But i only use store brands! I just helps him relax a little

Hey! This is totally normal. They say some babies don't cut their first teeth until 18 months! ...As exciting as it is...teething can also be a nightmare. I didn't personally experience it and my daughter has 12 teeth (will be one on the 14th) but some babies are in a lot of pain when they teeth so just think of it as a good thing! You got to enjoy more baby and mommy time w/o teething interruptions!
..And my daughter is the complete opposite..she got her teeth sooo quick. Lol..but this is normal!
