I think they will all get their teeth in their own time. Just think, you dont have to deal with teething just yet! THAT in its self is a BONUS!! lol. Teething sucks for them and for us, mine had teeth coming in at about 6 months, and now she has only the very back molars to come in, the eye teeth were the worst. So hold on to the painless babes as long as you can!! dont wish pain upon his or her poor little mouth! *smiles* his or her teeth will grow in for sure. just a matter of time. After all have you ever seen a child with no teeth ? *smiles*

I wouldn't worry to much about it, every childs teeth are different some are late in getting there teeth and some like my daughter had two teeth by the time she was four months old, Everyone is different. If you don't see any coming through by the time she is a year I would just casually ask her Pediactric doc. about it.

Babies have twenty teeth. They appear as follows: Lower central incisors-------6-10 months Upper central incisors-------7-10 months Upper lateral incisors-------8-10 months Lower lateral incisors-------12-18 months First molar------------------12-18 months Canine-----------------------16-20 months Second molar-----------------20-30 months So do not worry about it.

i do not have much experience but from what i hear from my relatives, i don't think you need to worry much. some babies don't have teeth even till their ninth month. in fact, what the elders say here is that if your child grows teeth in the eighth mth, then it is not tht good and you have to do some stuff. but not sure whether it's true. but my sister's son's teeth also came around the 8th or 9th month. my son's came n the 7th i think. don't worry too much. 6 months is still early for most babies.

There is nothing to worry as each baby would get their teeth at different age. My son is going to be 10 months old this month and he still have not got a single tooth yet and the doctor told us that it is normal.

I have seen my sister growing up and she got her teeth after 6th month but for that my father used to give her calcarea phos 6x so as to get teeth easily and healthy ones.

my 8 month old baby doesn't have any teeth yet either. I know they will be coming soon because she has been drooling more and shes been a little bit more fussy today then she has been. I don't feel anything or see anything but I know they are coming. I wouldn't worry. At his 9 month appointment his dr will check him out.

Nothing to worry. There may be slight variation. Has she started biting finger or some stuff?. That is the symptems for the growth of teeth by babies.

My son who is now 5 years old got his first tooth when he was 13 months old. So you need not worry. Every baby has its own pattern of teething.

Nothing to worry about. One of my daughters had her first tooth at about three months (!). The other children had their teeth when they had them. Supposedly the later they come the more healthy they'll be, and in a way that's been born out by the way that particular daughter has had trouble with her teeth in later years.

I've heard that some kids don't pop out their first tooth until very close to the age of 1 so i wouldn't be at all concerned. My daughter got her first tooth just after she hit 8 months & then she got another 3 within a month or so, then there was another gap before any more came in. She's now 20 months old & we're still waiting on her very back 4 to come in as well as the 4 'eye' teeth (they're the ones that kind of stick out at the front - you have 4 front teeth inbetween the eye teeth) - they could stay away for a while yet too! You have nothing to worry about at all :)

All babies are different. They will come in when they are ready. My oldest got her first 2 at 7 1/2 months but didn't get another single tooth until she was about 13 months old. My son got his first one at exactly 6 months old and by the time he turned 1 he had 12 teeth. My middle daughter was completely toothless on her 1st birthday. Her first tooth started poking through a week later. My youngest daughter got her first tooth on Christmas Eve in 2006 when she was 8 1/2 months old. By the time she turned 1 she had 12 teeth. They came in pretty quick.
