Hello
I know they say babies may actually have teeth coming in anywhere from 7-10 months but in some cases it may depend upon, when the mother or father themselves started teething or actually had their first teeth coming in. Is your son showing any signs like excessive drooling or shoving his hands in his mouth or trying to bite on stuff or etc? You should also talk to your son's health care provider but first and foremost do not worry. Babies will reach developmental milestones and phases at a pace that is right for them. I hope that this helps.

Baby's are all diffrent & can teeth at any age.

My son will turn 6 months ın 2 days & he had his two front bottom teeth ( 1 cut about 3 weeks ago & the other cut this week )

But my 3 year old neice didnt get her first tooth till around 9 months.

If you still worried just ask your health visitor / GP.

My daughter is 13 months and JUST got her first tooth 2 days ago!! My now 13 yr old was born with 2 teeth! my son got his right on "schedule" starting at 6 months and my now 8 yr old daughter got her first at 11 months. I myself was toothless until 14 months and have never in my life had a cavity. Dentist said longer under the gums healthier they are. But it depends on the kids i guess.
