    My baby is 9 1/2 months old and she still doesn't have any teeth. Is this normal?? Shouldn't they be coming soon?? I feel like she's been teething for months now. :)

    TIA-

    Hiya,

    Baby's teeth come in at different ages. Nothing to worry about, but you can ask your pediatrician about this when you see him/her for the next appointment. Sounds very normal but you might want to ask.

    My oldest didn't get teeth until 10 1/2ish months. No worries!! Actually, the later the teeth come in, the healthier they tend to be, according to dentists.
