It's all normal! My son is about the same age. Although he is working on the top teeth at the moment. Just wait, she will get them all soon enough!

My son is the same age as your daughter and hes only got his two bottom teeth. It's normal. I'm sure she will get more in a few more months. Just give it time is all. Goodluck!

My son is 10 months old and doesn't have any teeth yet. We were told that it isn't an issue until after his 1st birthday - I wouldn't worry.

Also, you may want to find out when you got teeth - I personally didn't get anything until between the 11th and 12th month, then had 12 teeth by the time I was 18 months old.

Out of three kids only one of mine got teeth before their first birthday, completely normal, each child does things at their own pace.

Every baby gets their teeth at different ages. I have had dentists tell me that it's better to have their teeth stay inside the gums so they are not aging from from food and bacteria. I wouldn't worry...she'll get her teeth in due time.

Every child is different. When I was a baby I had my first tooth at 5 weeks old. Both my sons got their first tooth at 4 months and all their teeth by one years old. One of the boys in my baby group didn't get his first tooth until he was very close to one years old. I have a magnet on my fridge that tells what age range and what tooth will come in when. At the bottom of the magnet says something about it only being guide lines and not to worry if your child doesn't get their teeth at the right age range.

Wow Okay thank you I'll keep all your messages in mind. yeah cause when my son was like 6 or 9 months he already had like 6 teeth. I guess every kid is different in there own way. But Ill keep that in mind. Thank you all for the help.

my first child did not get any of his teeth until after he turned 1year. my second child got her first tooth at 11 months. my third child got his first two teeth at 6 months. My second child is now 19 months and still only has six teeth. I spoke to the pediatrician about my children's lack of teeth and she said it was not a concern... All children are different. The teeth will come in time.

thats okay!! people say the longer it takes for the teeth to come in the better the quality they are! they have a longer time for the enamel to get hard! she will have a great set of teeth!

My daughter was the same way and I asked my dentist about it and he told me that it was a good thing. He said the longer they stay in, the healthier they will be because when they come out earlier, they are still really soft and don't have all of their enamel. So then when they eat things like jarred fruit which is really acidic, it's really hard on their soft teeth even though it isn't noticed until later on in life. So, be happy those teeth are staying protected in those gums for a bit longer.

Every child is different - both my children had full set of teeth by age 1 but my friend's daughter didn't get her 1st tooth till she was 1. She'll get them soon enough - just have to deal with the tantrums & sleepless nights that come with it!
