Q.

Teething

My baby is 8 months old and hass' t started teething yet, should I be worried? She also isn' t crawling but when I put her in her walking ring she follows me around.

Thanks!

Do not be concerned about your baby's teething. Her teeth will start to appear. Many babies are late with their teeth.You also do not need to be concerned about her crawling as most babies only crawl at around 10 months and many completely skip the crawling stage.
