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.

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!

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.

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.
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 son will be 8 months old on the 7th as well... i and my boyfriend didnt get teeth until 11 months old, so im not worried about it. He has been chewing, drooling, and pulling his ears/hair for a couple weeks.. Im hoping it comes in soon!

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.
