My son got his 1st tooth at 6 months, now a week later his 2nd is coming thru. My cousin however, got her first tooth at nearly 13 months! I think there's a huge range in teething ages, so I wouldnt worry bout it just yet...

Every baby is different my son started getting teeth when he was 4 months but i've heard about some babies that were over a year before getting one tooth. My mom joked that when my older sister was a baby she thought she'd have to get her dentures because it took so long for her teeth to come! :) Hope I helped

They're all different, but I know usually by 2 1/2 years they should have all their baby teeth.

KRAYFISHY!!!

Your son has 1 tooth now, so don't fret. They are coming through..
Xander started at about a month old, so this proves every baby is different..

I would laugh is Zaq didn't get his first tooth until he was like 10 years old ha ha ha

I have heard that babies who get there teeth later keep them later and that is better for them. My 3 month old seems like he is trying to teeth.

thye are all different my seven month old has two ..my 1 year old nephew has 2 and my step son who was born on the exact same day and my nephew has 6 so it just depends on the child and teeth are not something they need right now... its just one more thing you need to worry about .. brushing and whatnot

My daughter is 9 months old and she doesn't have any teeth yet either. All children are different. I have been told by several dentists that the longer it takes for the teeth to come in the stronger they will be. So, that is definitely a good thing. I wouldn't worry about it, they will come in eventually.

Yes, every child is different. Try not to compare your child to others because he will do everything in his own time.

You never know..my oldest had 6 teeth by 6 months and all of his baby teeth by 1..and my now 2 year old second child didn't get all of his teeth until about a month ago..he had to keep eating soft food for a LONG time! Now I have twins who are about 4 months..and one of them acts like he will be teething soon..and the other one doesn't..don't worry about WHEN they come just worry about taking care of them once they get here!
