My baby is 9 months (7 months adjusted) and she has no symptoms of teething at all.. Should I get worried?

No. The last couple of weeks in your pregnancy your baby gets a hit of calcium. Because your (our) baby/ies missed that hit it's common for premmies to get their teeth later than normal. My DD (36wks, 2.025kg) only got her first teeth at 14 months. Don't worry - they'll come :-)

My son is 11 months old (8 corrected) and still no teeth or symptoms either. I wouldn't worry:)

I wouldn't worry. Preemies seem to do everything late. My daughter was 13 mos, 10 mos adj, when her first tooth came in. Then two more came in the same week.

No not at all - my premmie is 15 months old (12 corrected) and is only just getting her second tooth!

My 30-weeker didn't get her first tooth until she was 10 months old. She only had 2 teeth by her first birthday. They all started coming in around 15 months. I agree with Aboutwee, they'll com in, they always do!
