Do not be concerned your baby's teeth will appear. She is showing signs of teething. Many babies are late teethers.

My son only got his first tooth at 11 months. He could walk and talk before that first tooth appeared.

He' s nearly 6 now and his teeth are not even wobbly at all, most of his classmates have lost one, two or even three teeth already. I' ve explained that I think the tooth fairy will only visit us when he' s in about grade 2.

I think there is a very wide range for when the first teeth appear.

If you are really worried you could ask your dentist to x-ray and check that the buds are there, but the teeth will arrive eventually.

Hi there. My daughter was 18 months before she got her 1st tooth, so do not panic. All babies are not the same. Maybe she' s fast in another area, e.g maybe walking or talking.......
