My son is 8 months and his 9th tooth just broke through, the 10th tooth won't be far behind. He's a healthy little guy, he just cut teeth really early.

Yea thats normal all babies are different and they develope at there own pace. My son is 8 months and he only has four teeth and ever since he's been three months old he had one of his side teeth trying to push through the gums but that hasnt come in yet. but yea shes very normal at that age. My friends baby his teeth came in all at once and he was 2 years

My daughter had two teeth that grew in at the same time at 4 months. Now she is 8 months with six teeth. Two on the top and 4 on the bottom. I think she has teething pains but overall she's a happy baby. I think she is trying to tell me she is ready for an apple or table food Lol!

I have a almost 9 month old boy and he started teething at 4 months old by 7 months he had 4 top one 3 bottom ones all babies are different. They do say that the longer the teeth stay in the more calcium they get to less prone to teeth probs later not sure if thats true tho but like i said we are all different but yet all start school with 10 fingers and 10 toes :)

Mine has six right now. 4 on top and 2 on bottom and he's working on the next 2 on the bottom, what a nightmare! I have a friend whose baby is 10 months and hers only has 5 total. Some kids are just faster than others.

My son is 8 months and I don't see no teeth yet but I think it depends on your child...Each child is different,

Hi.
My son is 8 months old and has no teeth yet. Every baby is different, some babies have their teeth at 12 months. I don't think u should worry about, it is all normal.

My son just turned 8mths on the 18th and he too has 6 teeth with more coming out. He is my 6th child and the first to cut teeth early and to cut alot quick he has three on bottom and two out on top with one cutting. I am assumeing it is normal or the teeth come when they want haha. My other children cut teeth at 9mths and cut a tooth a month. My sister was 4 months so I guess children are just different

My lil guy will be 8months on the 25th of Jan and hasn't had one tooth poke thru yet at all. Remember some babies can be born with teeth so this is just another one of those growing up issues that each baby will do differently and at their own pace and bodies time.

Yes yes yes! I am soooo glad you are going through the same thing as me right now..haha. My son just turned 8 months and has 7 teeth already. He got the first 3 around 5-6months and he has been teething all top 4 teeth at once. Amazing, isnt it? Its true they say every baby is different, not really any rules when it comes to teeth I guess...some babies are born with teeth! (and others dont get any til their 2!)

Completely normal! My daughter has 6 teeth also. She got her bottom teeth at about 4 1/2 months and at about 7 1/2 months, all 4 or her top teeth came in at the same time! No signs of the next 2 on the bottom though.

Definitely normal. I was a bit concerned that my 8 month old got her first 2 teeth @ 4 months and haven't gotten any since. Seems like teething just came to a halt. Pediatrician says its fine. I think Lily got her first two teeth fast because she likes to eat so much... Lol. Selena wants a variety of food that only teeth can allow. Best Wishes!

my son is doing the same thing and our pediatrician said it is completely normal.

[deleted account]

Yep, totally fine. Like has been said before, all babies are different. My son Owen has 8 teeth already and is 8 months today. It is nice to know someone else is going through teething he$% like I am right now! :) I guess we just get to get it out of the way quicker!

I've heard other moms say the same thing..I'm pretty sure it's normal,every baby is different and they like to take their own paths!lol..my little one doesn't have ANY teeth yet and he's 8 and a half months old...so it really just depends on the baby..:)
