Q.

11 months and still no tooth

I have an 11 month old who hasn' t started teething as yet.Is this normal because i have read that the average age for teething is 7 months.I am a bit concerned as he has developed quite well in terms of crawling and walking but no teeth.Please advise...

Many babies are late with their teething, like your baby son. Give him quite more time and if he has no teeth at all by 15 months please write to me again.
