Q.

16 month old - 4 teeth

Good Day Doc,

Your advise is always appreciated. Quick one - My 16 month old girl has 4 teeth and the last 2 came out in Aug, there''s no sign of anything coming. Is there a rule on a certain number of teeth at a certain age? or is the anything that really helps with teething. She used to wear teeting beads, but she develops this rush, so i took them out. Do teething beads realy help? If I am not supposed to worry now, when should i start worrying?

Thanks again!

You do not need to worry, many children are very slow with teething and sometimes the teeth do no appear until well into the second year or even later. Teething beads will not speed up your little daughter's teething
