My daughter is 8 months old and has 2 bottom teeth they still don't seem to look they are fully grown yet she's had them for about 2-3 months when will they be full size teeth and when will she get some more? She's showing all the signs of teething but nothin else yet, did your babies have monthly gaps before cutting more teeth?

Mine did! My son got his bottom two teeth very close together at around 7 or 8 months and then no more until he was almost one. Right before his first birthday, he got all 4 top teeth at one time - which was a horrible teething experience for everyone. I think it's normal for some babies to get teeth slower than others. I was starting to worry because as the top teeth came in, the first one we could see was off to the side, not in the center which I thought always came in first. But they all came in fine and he also showed signs of teething a long time before anything was visible to us.

And the top ones are also coming in slowly. It seems like they are just inching their way out of his gums instead of popping out like his bottom ones did. So I think that's pretty normal too. Don't worry about it - I'm sure she's fine! But you can always mention it to the doc at her next check-up for some reassurance from an expert.
