My daughter only has 6 teeth so far - coming out very slowly, long gaps in between each tooth cutting through...

My little girl has 8. I think she is behind. Most babies have a lot more I believe.

my daughter is 18mths and has 12 teeth total, and possibly 2 more working there way through, hard to tell as she barely lets me look in her mouth haha. she didn't get her 1st tooth until 1 week after her 1st birthday and then since then it's been a never ending eruption of teeth.

15 teeth so far... the right top eye tooth is coming through (the molars come before the eye teeth usually). Boy... he is not happy! My son will be 18 months in about a week. He is super tall for his age so I think he is way ahead of the game physically. He is not talking yet though... just mama, dada, baba and "nana" for banana. lol He knows what things are though... just won't say them yet.

Hi Nancy, Ryan Ben has eight (8) four up and four botton and i am even shocked that my househelp has trained her to use a potty. He even utters some words well infact next year i will introduce him to a kindergarten. Is that right with a June 2009 baby?

My daughter has 16 total. They say teeth that come in later, when they are older are better teeth though.

My daughter is 11 months now and she has 6 teeth. 4 top and 2 botttom. She began getting teeth about 2 and a half months ago and was getting one every week or two. We are having a break now thank god. It can be so painful for the poor little things. They all will come through in time. My first daughter only had 4 teeth by 12 months. She's 3 y.o now and has all of her teeth.



Oh she just got her seventh today! (19/11/2010)

My daughter has one upper front tooth, the other front about to come in and one upper molar! None of her bottom teeth have presented themselves yet but they are visible under the gums.

I'm due with our second child in two weeks and I'm afraid all of my daughter's teeth are going to come in at the same time. I might lose my mind!! :)

Twelve teeth. Eight in the front, top and bottom, and four more molars behind those (one on each respective side and up/down)

My daughter is the same... except right now she has about six on top starting to come through, so i wouldn't be surprised if that happens to your little one as well.

My son has just 4 teeth at 16 months! (2 bottom and 2 top) I'm not too worried though, I was the same, and my sisters and my 3 yr old daughter, and we all have great teeth, because our adult teeth didn't come till quite late either! It meant more time to establish a REALLY good dental hygiene routine while we were young, lots of practise on our baby teeth! :)

I don't even know. My son has 8 that are fully through, and at least 4 more coming in, but it might be more. When I'm brushing his teeth, he doesn't really let me see them all. Don't worry, though, I was one of those kids who got my teeth late, and I have good teeth - never a cavity and they are very straight.

my son gets teeth 4 at a time and started getting them really early. He's got 12 teeth now at 16 months old, its slowed down. I heard the later they get teeth the stronger they will be. Could be a myth but its something to be excited over! less cavities for you if its true!

My dautgher is 16 months and has 16 teeth, but she also popped through his first two at 6 months. It's nothing to worry about! Some kid's get theirs early, and others get them late - but it's normal!

My daughter is almost 17 months and she is working teeth 13 and 14. She has had her top front 4 and her bottom front 4 and also 2 molars on top and 2 molars on bottom since she was 12 months. I don't know if she is just advanced in getting her teeth, but right now she's working on cutting her eye teeth.

Ohhh Teething troubles. My daughter Sophie has 12 teeth now 6 top and 6 bottom. First tooth appeared at 7 months. Poor little angel had such a hard time. Now she is 16 months and is cutting more. 4 red cheeks. two on the top and two on the bottom. hahahaha.

My daugher didn't get her first bottom tooth until she was 11 months old. I was so worried. She is 16 months old now and has 2 on the bottom and only 2 at the top. Both my pediatrician and dentist said not to worry because supposedly the later they come, the better the teeth! :) I hope they're right! :)

My daughter has 12 teeth, she got all but four of them at around the same time roughly a month ago. They will come, all in due time. But beware when they do come, they will probably come in multiples... keep Tylenol handy.

All my kids have been, I wouldn't worry about it, my 16 month old is no exception to that rule. They get them eventually, and it is actually better, the teeth have less of a chance to have problems. She'll probably start getting them all at once, that is what is beginning to happen with my 16 month old, they also handle teething better when they are older.

My daughter is 16 months and still has no teeth. We can finally see that some are nearing the surface on the top, but none have poked through yet. She can still eat solid foods just fine and is otherwise healthy, so I'm not worried. The teeth will come when they're ready.

My son got his first tooth at 16 months and 3 days. In 4 days he got 2 top teeth and 1 bottom. An explosion! That's true what one of the mum said that their teeth will be much stronger and healthier when they get their teeth later because their teeth builts up stronger enamal inside their gums

My first was pretty slow. But my June baby has 14 teeth! - it's tiring for us both! They are all different, so it's no need worrying!

my daughter is 17 mos and has 9 teeth. She only has the bottom 2, the four top and 3 of the 4 1st year molars. My oldest was 2 at a time from 11 mos until 18 mos. she had only her 2 yr molars left to get at 18 mos.

Yeah, you'll probably get an explosion of teeth. Lexi got her first tooth at like seven or eight months. Right now she has four molars coming in at 16 months. She has about eight teeth right now in total (four top, four bottom), plus four molars in the back popping through, one on each side, top and bottom. She'll have twelve complete teeth in about a month, I'm guessing.

My daughter has 6, the top front two, the two on either side, and the bottom two front teeth. It's kind of funny looking, it's cute.

My daughter is almost 16 mos and has 12 teeth. Don't worry though, all kids teeth come in at different rates! As long as she has gotten 2 I am sure more will follow soon. It might be that your daughter will get them all at once instead of over a long period of time.
