Q.

No teeth

Hi Doc,

My son is 14 months old, weighs 8kgs &  length 73cm. He has been in the process of teething for a while now but still does not have any teeth. Why are his teething taking so long to cut?

I have been using Hylands teething gel. Is this safe to use?

Thank you doc.

Kind regards.

Do not be concerned, your son's teeth will soon start to appear. He is a slow teether but he will get his teeth.
