Unless the pedi is concerned, I wouldn't worry too much about it. They aren't plants, I doubt there's anything you can really do to make the teeth grow any faster than they're going to.

My daughter didn't cut her first tooth until she was 14months but once that first one came in, the rest seemed to follow farely quickly although at age 2 she still doesn't have all the teeth she is supposed to. I really wouldn't worry about it. It seems normal to me at this point in your daughters age and unless she is showing zero signs of teething, I think she'll be fine.

As Jennifer said, as long as her doctor isn't concerned, I wouldn't worry. EVERY child grows and develops at different rates.

Im wondering if there is a common factor, like something you ate or didn't eat during pregnancy. Thisnis the first I've ever heard of a child not cutting teeth until after 12 mos. Al my 5 children had a full set by 9 months and eating table food.

i have 4 kids and the 3 that have teeth all got theirs after a year old one right at 1 year one at 13 months and one at 14 months i've heard the later they get them the healthier they are, you shouldnt have anything to worry about, hope this helps

my mom tells me I did not have any teeth before one year old. My first daughter only had one tooth at 11 months. My second daughter is one year old now with only two teeth. It's not a bad thing at all. I actually had a dentist tell me that the longer it takes for teeth to come in the better!

I wouldn't worry, my daughter was born on time and had NO teeth at 12 months old. She didn't get her first one until she was 15 or 16 months old. Now she only has 7 teeth, and she is 21 months old.
