Hello ladies

DS is 8 months old and isn't showing any signs of teething.  I know that the front bottom teeth can come anywhere between 6 and 10 months. I know he'll get teeth eventually but I'm just wondering what the norm is? at what point should I start to get concerned?

My DD was 13 months when she got her 1st tooth biggrin.gif

She now has extremely strong teeth - although a little crooked and needed braces wink.gif

No need to be concerned - a lot of babies dont get teeth in the 1st year original.gif

Don't worry.  My DD1 didn't get her first tooth until she was 11 months old..  My DD2 got her 1st tooth at 7 months.  So you can see it varies between babies quite a bit.

DD got her two bottom middle teeth around 7 months and no more until after her first birthday.  At 19mths she now has 4 top and bottom and all 4 molars.

Teeth are just one of those things - no matter what you do, it'll happen when it happens!

DD (9 months) cut 2 at 8 months and hasn't shown signs of cutting any more.

My DD got her first 2 bottom at the same time at around 9 months.

She is just cutting her third tooth one of the top front ones now at 13 months.

They seem to come through very slowly for her, as in cutting to full tooth.

DS had his first at 4 months, and at 1 1/2 had almost a full set.

It can vary a lot - just as when kids lose teeth.  
My first DD didn't have a tooth until about 9 or 10 months but she lost her first tooth just after she turned 5.  She started school without her 2 front teeth which is quite early from what I have noticed with other kids.  DD 2 had her first tooth pop up at 4 months and didn't start losing teeth until she was 6.  DS was about 6 months and DD3 has just got her first tooth at 8 months.

oh it varies...some babies are born with teeth. My daughter got her first tooth at six weeks and some kids of course are alot longer. She was just early. I do not think there is any set time that is right or wrong.

DS finally just cut his first 2 teeth (at the same time) a week ago. He was 14.5 months.

You don't need to worry until 18 months. I could dig up a link that backs me up on that but it's late and I'm tired Tounge1.gif

My DD has only just started to cut her first tooth and is almost a year old.  So far it's been horrid for her and us, so enjoy the non-teething time. biggrin.gif  She won't let us see her teeth and hates it when I feel around her mouth, so it's hard to know how much longer it's going to go on.

DD (almost 9 months) has just last week cut her two bottom teeth. I've been watching for ages.
