The first teeth often appear by 6 months and most babies have some teeth by 10 months but occasionally teething is delayed to beyond a year.

Teething was also a concern for me, I have been told that one should only worry if baby reaches 2 years and still has no teeth then it is a course for concern. My baby boy only got his first tooth recently and he is 13 months.
