What is the latest a baby has got their teeth through????
DD was 13 months old before her first tooth came through. They then came through gradually, but in the wrong order.
I did take DD to the dentist to ask about it, but was assured that it was fine. To put my mind at rest she was referred to the dental hospital at about 16 months - she only had 3 or 4 teeth max (maybe less?) and no bottom two front teeth. But all was fine.
She is now 3y 3m and has all her teeth. Her front bottom two are slightly crooked, as a result of coming through late. But dentist things this will correct itself with her second tteth.
aww bless her.... still no teethies! i know what its like to be waiting for them, jess was 10 months before her first popped through and now only has 5.... she will get there hun, it's a good sign that they will be "good" teeth when they do appear!
Do you find that even with no teeth you little ones can manage almost any food regardless? I remember DD aged 8 months, on Christmas Day, tucking happily into fillet steak, veggies, all the trimmings plus a pudding. All minus any teeth
My ds is nearly 18 months, and has a grand total of 4 teeth, with 2 more just about to emerge. He got his first at 11 months, 2nd at just over a year (both on the bottom) and one top front tooth at about 15 months.
I was a bit worried to begin with, but have been told numerous times that it really isn't a problem, and I am now perfectly relaxed about the whole thing
