Teething

Hi,

My baby boy is 9 months old and has no teeth at all. Should I be worried?

Do not worry at all. Many babies are slow with their teething. Your baby's teeth will come through.

The only thing you need to worry about is how is the teething going to affect you baby''s health as for how old your baby is, dont even strees about it. my son is 4 he had his first after 9months and at that time he was walking already. babies do things at their own time.Don''t worry your little angel will make it before 1year.

I read now that most babies teeth between 10-18 months, seems you are worried of no teeth and I worry of too much teeth! My girl is now 10 months old and already have six teeth, first two appeared at 4 months. she and her cousin is 2weeks apart and he is only showing signs of teething now

Not at all, both my friends kids got their very 1st tooth on and close to their first birthday. Todat they both have a healthy set of 20 milkteeth each..... no need to worry.
