Ds2 os 16mo and only has four teeth at the top and four at the bottom - no canines at all as yet.
C'est normale or am I right in thinking they should be there by now?

ds2s have just arrived he is nearly 16mos but he has 12 teeth already
I wouldn't worry it's not a sign of future success wink

It depends on the child.....
That should read I can't remember, my dd had her first teeth at 10 mths, dss at seven months.

I think it is totally normal...I only have one wee guy and his are just through and no more at 22 months....

I bet your DS looks really cute with just 4 teeth smile
