1 year old with no teeth

my daughter is already 1 and she seems to have been teething for months yet the only teeth we are able to feel are her molars. she hasnt popped a single tooth and it honestly doesnt look like she will. when i asked her doctor about it he just keeps saying that every baby is different and that it will happen eventually. i understand that every baby is different but that answer is just not good enough for me. should i try taking her to another doctor? or is there something i can do? i really dont know what to do and im trying to figure out if this really is ok or if something is wrong.

what your doctor said is true, every child IS different. But, there are some factors involved which could give you an idea of her timeline. For instance.......... genetics. Ask around and find out when you got your teeth, or your significant other got his, or siblines, ect.
I have seen babies born with teeth (recently, she had five teeth when she was born..... seriously!) and I have seen others that don't have any at one year old like your daughter. The general trend is to start asking questions and seeing specialists if she is 18 months and still has no teeth

I was in the same boat as you when my daughter was 1 year old. I could almost guarantee she started teething at 4 months old. She didn't get her first tooth until she was about 13 months old. Two teeth came at once. 2 days latter another tooth came out.


I was worried like you. I talked with her dr and she said not to worry, but I did- My in laws kept saying something is wrong with her. Nothing is wrong with her. Perfectly healthy daughter! She is now 20 month old and has 9 teeth. She is a busy girl! Looks like another tooth is almost out.


Hang in there! Try not to worry. Dr's say as long as teeth start coming around 18 months old. She will come around and tooth after tooth will come out!


Best of Luck
