My daughter turned 8 months yesterday, and I just noticed 1 tooth on the bottom starting to finally come through 2 days ago, so I think many of us are in the same boat! I was wondering too, but I know it's fine :) I'm sure he'll get some soon enough.
She hasn't been sleeping well the past couple of days either. I'm hoping it's just from that and it will get better. (until another one comes, haha)

My daughter is 8 months old and has two teeth. My son is 9 he had a tooth at 6 months but lots of cavities as a toddler. My 12 year old got her first set of teeth at 11 months and had perfect teeth until she got her adult teeth then we had to get braces.

My daughter is 8 months and 2 weeks and she doesn't have teeth yet either. She has 3 other girls in her play group, all born within days of eachother, and they all have teeth. in fact they are ahead of her in other ways too such as crawling and sounds. My daughter doesn't crawl yet, although she does sit up, and she is just starting to make certain sounds. I try not to compare her progress with other babies. She is growing at her own pace and is such a happy baby. don't worry, your son will get his teeth, probably before my daughter!

My first child did not get a tooth until his first birthday. He still is slow with losing them (he is 10 now) but the dentist said that the longer the teeth wait to come in, they are usually healthier and less chances for braces since there is more room in the jaw for the adult teeth to come in when they finally do. Don't stress - every baby is different. My 8 month old is already working on tooth #4.

Kids get teeth when they are ready. My son is nearly 2 and he was about 9 months old when his finally started to come through (and he's got a mouthful now). My daughters started coming through at 6 months (she's 7 months). One of my aunts didn't get teeth until she was 13 months old. My nephews got them when they were 4 months old. There's no magic age for it and it will happen. Every kid is different and much more so about teeth then some other things. Hang in there.

My little one is 7 months and just got his first tooth, my older son got his first one when he was 6 months or so. What I have heard, some kids don't get them until much later. Depends on the kiddo, if he is nursing, be thankful that he hasn't gotten any teeth yet...mine likes to try out his new tooth while he is eating...ouch!
My son is 8 months this weekend and just got his first tooth last Monday. It is barely poking through. My friend's little girl didn't get her first tooth until 13 months. It was hard to deal with no sleep for 6 nights though! I hope the rest aren't as bad.

My daughter doesnt have any teeth either and she is the same age...my mom is a nurse and said that alot of times its better if a baby doesnt get teeth until later on because then they have less of a chance of decaying from juices or milk..things like that.
