When did your DC get their teeth?

DS is 11 months old and has no teeth. Not a sausage. He is the only baby, about his age, who I know who has no teeth. Even those that I think of as "much" younger than him are now getting teeth. I am getting paranoid that he won't get any!

DS1 7 months.

Ds2 nearly 10 months and no teeth yet

My MIL loves telling the story of how she took my DH to the doctor when he turned 1 and did not have a single tooth.

Doctor laughed them out of the room. He said "You crazy woman, have you seen a grown man without teeth?".

DH eventually got his first tooth a month later. Now he has them all.

DS got first ones at about 13-14 weeks. Count yourself lucky! They all do things at different ages and 11 months is totally normal to still be toothless.

15 months, but then they started to appear one by one and did not cause any discomfort at all.

All 3 were over 11mths.

DD2 is now 15mo and has about 5 or 6.

Thank you ladies, I am reassured that there is not an underworld of child dentures that I don't know about! Thank you Justaphase, your MIL's GP made me chuckle!
Pigley Wow ! I have no Wisdom teeth at 30something,maybe we are just not toothy people! Gummy smile to you.

I didn't have a tooth in my head until 16 months, do I win? My brother was fifteen months younger than me and got his teeth early so we teethed together! That must have been fun for my mother...

Apparently I ate steak without teeth, so not having them didn't slow me down!

I also have no wisdom teeth. In fact, an X ray a few years back revealed that I literally have none at all, not just that they haven't come through. I like to think of it as being on a higher plane of evolution. grin

Horton - wisdom teeth - me too, they are just not there. We are very evolved.

But - big news - DS's first tooth arrived last night. I was about to go out and DH came running down the stairs shouting "A tooth, a tooth, he just bit me!".

one of my twin daughters didn't get her first tooth til she was 15 mths and i had phoned the dentist when she was 1 as i was worried! the dentist said it was fine and she would probably just get her adult teeth later aswell...
don't worry your DS will get them eventually!!

ds1 was practically born teething! and cut his first tooth on my nipple when he was only a month or 2 old! That was such a shock I can tell you!

I have a photo of ds2 taken at about 3 months old and he has a wide grin and 2 dinky teeth.

So mine I guess are quite early!!

Panic over! A month later, and he's got 6!
