'Where are my baby's teeth?
mamamcclain posted:
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. :)

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.

One of my nephews just started getting in teeth a couple months ago and he turned 1 at the end of Dec...from what his pedi said the later the teeth come in the better, because bottle caused tooth decay.
