Sage will be 8months old August 7th and I was wondering if it's normal for her to still have no teeth not even a sign of one little tooth?

My grown children had no teeth until a few months prior to their second birthday. They now share the blessing of having no cavities.

My daughter is 8.5 months and has no teeth. She's been drooling and chewing for months now and has started pulling her hair and ears in the last month so hopefully she gets some soon!

All babies are def. differant. My lil boy turned 8 months on the 3rd. He just got his first tooth pushing through last wednsday. I was wondering the same thing, especially since my 4yr old had 4 teeth at 8 months old. They come when its time...but trust me enjoy her not having any. The bites hurt alot worse afterwards! His pediatrician actually told me that it is better for them to get them later...they usually havce less problems with them when they are older!

My daughter is just 8 months old and yesterday cut her first tooth. i asked the dentist is this normal and he said that teeth will come through when they are ready not to worry. But if she had no teeth still at 12 months to come and see them.

Perfectly normal! Ella is my 3rd child & she doesn't have any teeth yet, either. Is she eating baby foods & chomping away at everything on sight, AND drooling like crazy? YES. But, no teeth yet!

Don't rush those teeth...The longer it takes for them to come in the healthier your babies teeth will be that is what the dentist told me.

Yes, it just really depends on your baby. They all can get their teeth at different times. I wouldn't be alarmed. She will get her first one soon.

Hi So glad I read this comment, I have twins one of whom has 5 teeth already, whilst the other who is definitely showing all the signs of teething has no teeth at all and can't even see any coming in his mouth. Just goes to show they're all different, even twins!

Of course it's normal! Every baby is different and get teeth at different times - my 8 m/o also has no teeth and she's certainly not the only one. My sis-in-law's twin girls didn't get their first teeth until 1 year old! I wouldn't worry about it.

[deleted account]

Mine doesn't either! I'm beginning to worry as well, however she has been teething for it seems like forever!!

My son got his 2 bottom teeth 4 days apart right after turning 7 months, but I know a lot of people with babies that don't have their teeth yet. I'm sure it's normal

My baby girl was born dec4th and has no teeth andd no signs of them coming - frankly i am happy tho, i dont want to get bit :) my son got his first two teeth in his 9th month about 3 days apart and after that he bit me on the arms, neck, back! (that was excruciating) and luckily he wasnt breast fed. this little one is though so i am nervous

Teeth are not a milestone that doctors worry about. Of course, if there is still no sign after their birthday, some doctors might send you to a dentist to "make sure" things are ok. My first daughter did not cut her first tooth until after her birthday. After that, it was three at a time. Poor girl. Her 2year molars are finally in at 34 months!

Don't worry, my little girl is a week shy of 8 months and she has no teeth either. She's been teething since 2 months old but she has no teeth yet.. not even the starting of any teeth. It's perfectly normal, we all develop at our own pace :).

No worries. My son didn't get his first tooth until after his first birthday. Dentist says that he'll lose them later. And this is a good thing.

My Hannah girl got her first tooth at the start of 7 months. So each baby is different.

I have been wondering the same thing. My daughter just turned 8 months on August 6th and has no teeth yet. My older son had his first tooth at 4 months old. Just goes to show how different each childs development can be.

my little one (also almost 8months) doesn't have any teeth either yet. But I'm not worried. Maybe we should be happy, if they get more teeth at once. lol

[deleted account]

No my daughter who turned 8 months just got her front 2 bottom teeth at the same time. All the babies in my family teeth late. I wouldn't worry about it until after 1 years old when they should show signs of teeth by then.

My daughter Harpe was also 8 months old on August 7th-just this past week both her bottom front 2 teeth started peeking out...

Absolutely! lots get them in their 7ths month, but I know of some who were born with 4 teeth and other who didn't get them until 15months, so don't fret - if you're breast feeding this is a bonus!!! She might get a few all at once, so be ready! It's the bottom front ones that usually come first. Keep an eye out for dry red cheeks, and flu symptoms like temperatures, grizzliness, more feeds, the runs etc... you have fun times ahead! Good luck!

My daughter is 7 months old and she does not have any teeth. My son did not have any teeth until he was 15 months old. The pediatrician had told me that I shouldn't worry about it. Some kids just take longer to get them than others.
