Anybody got any ideas? I thought he should have at least one by now? How long did you have to wait?

DS1 only had the two front bottom-row ones when he was a year old.

Don't worry, they will come.

Ds1 7 months, Ds2 14 months.

Thanks - this helps me put his gummy mouth into some context. I'm not particularly worried - just curious that they are taking a while to appear. I wonder if this mean that he will keep his baby teeth for longer - will they be falling out when he's 11 rather than 6?!

DD2 at 10 mt

Funny you should say that, because DS1 seems to be losing his teeth a lot slower than his peers. And so is one of his friends. They were both born in August, so they are right at the end of the school year, so maybe it is to do with maturity (only in terms that we are comparing September children with August ones, IYSWIM)smile

Dd got her first tooth at 13 months. Then in wrong order.

Her first tooth fell out this summer at 7y4m which was a lot later than her friends.

However her dentist thinks this is good. She is older now for looking after new teeth.

Dd1 had two bottom teeth at 7mo and then no more till she was 11mo. Dd2 now 4mo is gumming and dribbling for England. There's no telling.

DS didnt get any till he was 8 or 9 months - then about 4 erupted at once. He dribbled from about 10wks old though.

Both mine were 11 months old before they got any teeth.

My DS2 is 8 mo and still no sign of teeth, I was beginning to worry too!

DS3 is 10 months and has no teeth, does not crawl (but drags himself along) and has not much interest in food either.

But is perfectly fine.

Don't worry about it!

DS1's teeth didn't come in till he was around 1 yr, his teeth have only just started falling out and he's 7½ now.

DS2 is 10 months and still no sign of any teeth. He's been chewing and had symptoms since he was about 3 months but still no signs of any teeth!! grin

DD is nearly 9 months and resolutely toothless as well

First two teeth this week - 10 months. Never thought they'd appear!

My dd's first tooth came through at 13 months. The dentist told me that anything up to 2 years is considered normal, so you've got a while to go yet! She's just got her first set of molars coming through at 2.6...
