There is no need for concern. Treat your bay in the same way that you would treat a younger baby who is teething. If s/he is in pain then use Panado if necessary and apply a teething gel if needed.

Hey Tshego,

Do not worry is 10m old and hasn' t started as well, I did ask the dentist the latest a baby can start is 14/15months. Will jut have to wait and see.

Mine is a boy, i' ll assume yours as well. I heard that boys are slow when i comes to teething
