does anyone know if there is maybe a link between breastfeeding and when babies get their teeth? my sons were formula fed, due to the lack of support i had then. the nurses found it easier to help me bottle feed rather than breastfeed. they started getting their teeth at 8 and 8.5 months. i am currently breastfeeding my daughter, now 10 months, and she has no sign of getting any teeth. i've heard that all of your kids should get their teeth at about the same time and if you were later getting teeth, they will be. but all of my friends who have never breastfed their babies, who are about my daughter's age or younger, already have a mouth full of teeth. my friends who breastfed, their babies got teeth later. does anyone have any ideas about this, am i crazy?
