How many teeth does your 18 month old have?

Just that really.

My ds had 18 at 18mo. I don't think that's very usual though. He cut his first tooth at 4 months and never really stopped.

Mine both teethed early and had the full set by 18 months.

The next ones they got were the ‘7 year old ones’ which they got at 5.

The 10 year old sprouted even more when he was 9.
I never knew they kept coming!

I think I counted 12 but then he bit me so I’m not going back for round 2!

God, mine has 5, and i knew that it was less than other 18 months old have, but didn't know it was that much less.
I wasn't too worried, but I am wondering if I should be more worried now. The fifth one just came through recently, but didn't start teething til the week of first birthday.

Foniks that is way more usual than my example of having the whole lot by 18 months.

5 at 18 months is nothing to worry about.

Plus teething later means they lose their baby teeth later which means adult teeth later.

Trying to get a 5 year old to brush and take care of all the adult teeth they have accumulated is, I find, more worrying.

6 at 20 months! She started slow but so do I and it's hereditary.

DD didn’t get her first tooth until she was just over 1 and by 20 months I think she had 5 or 6. Definitely no more than that.

Mine had the full set except the big back molars by then. He teethed early and without fuss though, we were pretty lucky.

My 16 month old nephew has four.

motmot Mon 23-Oct-17 18:14:26

8. Although she then fell down the stairs and knocked one out so 7 sad

Silversun83 Mon 23-Oct-17 18:28:24

My 17-month-old has 10.. including the four back molars but only has the front middle two at the bottom (apparently it's unusual to get the back molars before more at the bottom?? ) I wouldn't worry too much, this thread just shows there's a big range! And less to clean grin DD hates them being cleaned.

Foniks Mon 23-Oct-17 20:54:03

Phew! All these latest posts have made me feel a lot better.

True Dingle that's definitely a plus to this.

Motmot sorry to hear that. And at this age, they're brand new and already one down sad thankfully it's the milk teeth not adult teeth though, and I don't think anybody will even notice because when she's young they'll just think it hasn't grown yet and when she's a little older they'll just think that one has come out for the tooth fairy

16 by 12 months and still 16 at 18 months. 2 more are almost there now though I can feel them right under the surface of the gum.

Orangepear Mon 23-Oct-17 21:27:59

12 and I think more are on their way soon.

Caroian Mon 23-Oct-17 21:35:42

My son had precisely no teeth at 18 months. And I'm a bloody dentist!

Variation in the timing of eruption of primary teeth is the rule, not the exception. There really is nothing to worry about at this stage. (But it is advised that your child be registered with a dentist by now - and they can reassure properly)

My son eventually got all of his teeth - starting with an upper molar, just to be even more different - but he was well over 3 by the time he had them all.

FrancesHouseman Mon 23-Oct-17 21:41:55

DD had something like 8 at 13 months and the dentist said she was “ahead of the game” (not quite sure what game he thinks we’re playing, mind...)

Please don’t worry - the teeth are there waiting to come through and they will!

DearTeddyRobinson Mon 23-Oct-17 22:01:30

16, all but the back molars. My nephew had none at 12 months mind you! They're all different, try not to worry.

Drinaballerina Mon 23-Oct-17 22:04:08

Definitely 16 (at 16 montgs) but judging by her nappies and the frantic chewing over the last few days it may be more!

helensburgh Mon 23-Oct-17 22:07:52

8 i think!

FunkinEll Mon 23-Oct-17 22:09:40

My youngest DS had 16 by 18 months. He has 20 teeth now at exactly 2.

Complete opposite to his eldest brother who was a very late tether.

Iwishicouldfly456 Mon 23-Oct-17 22:12:12

My dd had none at 18 months. Cut her first one at 19 months. Is 3 now and has 1 shy of a full set. They'll come don't worry.

spacefrog35 Mon 23-Oct-17 22:17:48

Somewhere between 6 & 8 although I think we're about to get our first molar. She teethes really slowly and badly, it's horrible sad

Love the dentist with a toothless baby haha. I have been thinking I should register mine at a dentist, but thought they'd think I'm weird that i want them to look at gums and so few teeth. I will do it next week though.
She might just take after me and have strange teeth. My dentist said i still have a couple of milk teeth in the back, kind of weird, I didn't even know that was possible.

I didn't know it was so normal to have a child still getting teeth after age 2! Thought they all had all their teeth by 2.

Sorry your DD has it so hard spacefrog

16? I think. She’s had them for a couple of months.
