tooth development varies greatly between children- although the norm is for teeth to start erupting between 6-10 months

My one daughter only got her first tooth at 14months and then within 2 weeks all of them appeared. My other daughter who is 11 months now, cut her first tooth 6 weeks ago and since then nothing else has appeared. I wouldnt worry about it, they all develop differently and besides you are going to miss those gummy, toothless smiles when there is a mouth full of teeth.
