yes it can take ages, my son got his 1st tooth at 16 and a half months and his second 1 month later. he is now 20 months and still only has two teeth-on the bottom.

My son is 7 months and just went to his pedia today. He still doesn't have teeth coming out, but, the pedia did see tooth buds. She said they can come out as late as 1 year old!

My daughter is 10months old not and she cut her first tooth between 6 and 7 months. they were sitting there and waiting for about a month before she cut them, (bottom ones first) so it can take awhile. He top ones came in about 8 months, she just cut 2 more top ones in the past 2 weeks, and 2 more on the bottom are sitting just below surface. They have been fore about a month. She's done pretty good with teething and hasn't been very fussy. Do you have a wooden spoon/spatula? That's what we used for her to cut her teeth. She loves biting things and it worked...ok so i'm guessing it can take a lil while.Hope that helps... also that book "what to expect....during the first year" that's a helpful book...hopes this helps a lil bit!!
