My baby is almost 8 months old on the 25th why doesn't she have a tooth coming in anywhere? How old does babies be when you first see a tooth?

Every baby is different, my oldest son was born with a tooth, and I've heard of babies who didn't have teeth until right around their first birthday. They'll be there soon enough

Hi Tiffany...I'm currently going to school to be a dental assistant. So I have an answer for you. There are "guidelines" for when kids should get teeth but this is not true for all kids. Her teeth will come in their own time. One plus to this is that she will keep her baby teeth longer and learn better oral hygiene before she gets her permanent teeth. Hope that helps:)

Don't worry! My little girl is nearly 9 months and still doesn't have her first tooth! My health visitor said the longer it took the better as there is less time for her to get any possible decay!
