Q.

Stopped teething?

Hello,

My youngest daughter is 16 months old. Her first tooth erupted at approx. 6 months of age. She has had 4 teeth erupt on her upper jaw & 2 on her lower jaw & the last of these teeth erupted when shortly before her 1st birthday. Since then, nothing else. Is this normal or is there a problem that I need to have looked at? She was born full term & weighed 4.2kg's, I also had no problems during the pregnancy. I hope you can help.

Thank you,

Dee

children can show differet erupting times that vary from the norm during their development. I wouldn't be too concerned right now.
