Just want to know what age peoples babies got their teeth in, my little boy is almost 11 months old and no teeth. Ive taken him to doctor, they wanted to slice his gums, but have agreed that we should wait till he's 12 months, i dont want them doing something like that before he's a year old. What do you think?

OMG never heard of that before. My oldest daughter's teeth didn't come in until after her first birthday, her doctor told me that was ok and that actually her teeth would fall out later than other kids as well. She is almost 11 and im still waiting for some of her baby teeth to fall off.

I would wait. The teeth will come. If by a year he still doesn't have any signs of teeth, take him to the dentist ( no x-rays ) and see what they say....

Ummm ya I would definately talk to a dentist first because my daughter didn't get her first tooth until she was almost 9 months old and the dentists said the longer they stay in the better because then they have a chance to harden before they are exposed to acids and such while most babies teeth are still soft and don't have their outer enamel yet. And once the first one came in, they just kept coming and now she is 17 months and has 12 teeth and 2 more coming in. The only reason I could see anyone suggesting that is so he is behind on foods because he is going to be needing lots of heavier solids right away to keep him growing but I would definately consult with a dentist first. And give him lots of hard things to chew on in the meantime. Good luck.

Don't let them do that, it sounds awful! My daughter got them at 4 months, my other is 4 months old now and no teeth, my sister was born with 2 teeth so she really ended up having 3 sets, my other sister was 6months, I know a 14mth old just has 4 teeth so everyone is different. My advice would be to take him to the dentist and they can xray to see where they are and how they are moving, good luck
