dont stress they will come when they are ready, my son was almost 14months before his first tooth came through and he is two now and now has 11 teeth. all babies are different in there development , as long as they are happy and healthy just enjoy cos they grow so fast.

The longer it takes for their teeth to come in the healthier teeth they will have!! So this is a good thing!!

My son is only 6 months and no teeth... but my sister's kid didn't cut her first tooth until she was like 9 and 1/2 months old. I think it's pretty normal for there to be a large variety in ages when it comes to cutting teeth.

It is very common my daughter who is now two didn't get her first tooth til she was almost one.... no need to worry....... once your daughter makes one start taking her to the dentist to get regular check ups.... they start seeing kids at one Good Luck

It is very common! We have some friends where their daughter didn't get some teeth in until she was almost a year!! :-) If you ever get to where you are worried about it, I would just ask your pediatrician or take her to your dentist. Hope this helps!

Oh yeah! it could take awhile, or one may pop out tomorrow! haha.. my little girl had one tooth for the longest time, then another one sprouted.. she didn't get a full mouth of teeth until she was about 15months.

Yes all kids are different my son got his first at 3 months but my nieces and nephews were later. It varies for each child. Sometimes you can massage their gums and I have heard this may help.
