Very unusual, but then your baby is a slow teether so this can happen. The other teeth should start coming through now.

Hi Debs

My son got his first tooth when he was 12 months and it was first the two on top then the two bottom and last week we discovered one way back in his mouth. Aparantly it is normal for some kids. He is 14 months now so everything is happening so fast.
