Yes, it takes a while for them to get all their teeth. Some develop faster than others.

My daughter is also 15 months and she only has 6 teeth. They all develop at different times, I am sure he is fine.

Yes, my grandaughter is 25 months and still doesn't have all her teeth. Her dentist said not to worry they will come in. It's easier to know when they are coming in because she is able to tell me where her mouth hurts.

My son is 18.5 months and just started getting his 9th and 10th teeth. I'm so part of a mom's group and some babes that are younger have more teeth and some babies that are older have less teeth. Totally normal.

There are 20 babies in my mother's group (14-16mths old)& they are all different. Some have 10 or even 16 teeth and others have much fewer. My daughter got her 1st tooth at 11mths & her 2nd one broke thru the day before her 1st birthday. She is now 15mths & has just 4 teeth but she is able to say a variety of words & eat a variety of foods. She also has very little hair compared to her friends but she is individual & will get there in her own time.

My three year old had all her teeth by 1 year. My god daughter just started getting her first teeth. All kids are different in their development stages teething usually starts around three months and can go to three years

Ya that is ok. Babies develop at different times. I read an article online saying that some kids wont get all their teeth until 3 years of age.

Oh yeah, thats more than fine. My daughter is 1 and only has 6 teeth. I used to work at a preschool though with the babies, and I remember 1 child who didn't get his 1st tooth until he was 15 months old! And he was more than fine. Babies get them at different times. Don't worry :)
