There is no need to be concerned. Very many babies are slow to start teething. Your baby's teeth will start to come through.

My 8 Month old is showing no signs of teeth, although the symptons are there. Apparently I was a late bloomer too! But try not to worry too much, have you ever seen a toothless toddler? It will come up eventually I''m sure.

All 3 of my children got teeth late. I was worried with the first one who only started at 11 months but my youngest got her first tooth at 16 months. My grandchildren are following suit with the eldest getting teeth at 16 months and the 2 babies, aged 9 and 11 months, still being toothless. Don''t worry - teeth will appear when they are ready. Like all milestones, they are averages and who need average.
