My son was about 8,9 months when he got in his first tooth.. I wouldn't worry too much.. I have found though the later age they get in there teeth the faster the come in! Christian my son when he got his first tooth a few weeks later he got 5 more in! and by a year old he had all the teeth he is supposed to have

My dr has told me that a first tooth can come anywhere between birth and 18 months. So i would not worry at this time if he is 8 months old with no teeth. I think my son got his first at almost 9 months

My daughter is 8 months old and her first tooth just started coming in about a week ago. I heard that the later they come in the stronger the teeth are anyway.

every baby is different for and example my friends baby and my son are two weeks apart they both are two but her son walk real early than my son well her son still is not talking but my son been talking for a while now meaning saying words and trying to make a sentance. so now you see every baby grows at his or her own paste. Don't worry about other peoples kids only worry about your own that's how things work my where.

my son didnt get his first tooth until he was about 8.5 months old , but I have heard the later they get them the better b/c then they will have them longer in return getting their adult teeth at a later age

The later they come the stronger they are, they'll probably come shortly anyway. I honestly wouldnt worry about it.. My sons came extremely early he had 3 at 4 months old and i've had to be extremely careful with them but I wish they had come later.

my son was doing the same thing. I asked his peditrician about it and he said that everything was fine and he could tell by his gums that he did have the teeth there. They will come through when they are ready. Then I asked my dentist about it and he told me the same thing but also children's teeth seem to do better whe they come in at a later period. Follow your instincts though.
