DS is 9 months next week and has only got two teeth! His first two bottom ones came through at 6 months and then nothing! I thought they all came through pretty quickly once the first two were up or am i just being impatient?!!
LOL the back of his head is still a bit flat too - when does that pop out??!!
My dd got two teeth through at 5 months. She is now 9 months and 5 have come through in the last 2 weeks. Give him time they will come when they are ready.
Not sure about the head bit, does he sleep on his back?
Dd got her first 2 teeth at 11 months, then they came through 2 at a time fairly regularly over the next couple of months. She's 2.5 now and has just started getting her 2nd molars through at the back. They're taking an age!
No idea about flat heads. Is it very flat or just the shape of his skull? One of my mates has rather a flat head
dd got her first two bottom front ones at 10 months, then top four at 12 months. Then nothing for another 6 months and suddenly another 10 appeared in quick succession. That teething-free period was bliss - she ate like a horse, slept like a log and was cold-free most of that time too. Now she's just turned 2 there's only the back molars to come. Enjoy the breather!
DS1 got his first two teeth at 11.5 months, ds2 was 12 months before he got his. Apparently they are then more likely to get their second set later: ds1 was nearly 7 before he lost his first milktooth - some of his friends started losing them when they were 5. If they are older before their permanent teeth come through they should be better at brushing them, and they should last longer!
DOn't worry about it. DD got her first teeth at 13 months, and then got them all in the wrong order after that. It didn't cause her any problems at all though and she could eat pretty much anything, without any teeth.
My DS is 7 1/2 months and still has no teeth at all. Personally I'm in no hurry for them to come as it will be extra work anyway having to clean them. And I'm sure when they're ready to come they will so I don't worry.
My dd was 11 months before anything came through. She's 2 now and most are there. Make the most of it before you have to enter into the joy that is teeth cleaning. What a happy time it is in our household!
My DD didn't get her first two teeth till 9 months and then her top two at 11 months ... she is now 13.5 months and only has the 4 ... but one of the next top ones is just beginning to cut through at last, her poor gums have been bulging for ages!
DS had 6 teeth by 12 months and then had no more till he was 20 months ... he then got 10 in the space of 2 months !
