Hi All! I have a question. I was wondering is it possible for LOs to stop teething for a long period of time? My little guy cut his 1st two teeth at 5 months and he pretty much cut a tooth every month until he was 10 months old. He has six teeth and now has completely stopped cutting teeth. He has not had a new tooth come thru since he was 10 mos old. He will be 13 months on Sunday. Should I be concerned?
Mason got his first two teeth at 5 months also. He didn't get his next two until he was 8 months. He got two more at 9 months and two more at 11 months. Those are the 4 top middle and 4 bottom middle. A couple of weeks ago (At 13 months) he got two more teeth up top in the very back. One on each side. I would say that your LO is right on track. It takes a little while to get those back teeth in.
