Or in our case lack of teeth!
DD has only 6 teeth - 4 at the top and 2 at the bottom with no sign of any more coming through.
How worried should I be?

I wouldn't be overly concerned, but I would expect a 16 month old child to have their full compliment of front teeth by now. Can you feel or see bumps on the gums where teeth are coming through? She may have a whole load waiting to erupt at the same time - lucky you wink

If you have an y concerns it's always best to ask your Health Visitor or GP to take a look and advise you. They won't think that you're making a fuss.

Thank you. Sometimes she keeps chewing her hand and it seems like she's teething but then it all stops again. This has been going on since she last got any new teeth in February. Asking HV is a good idea.
