Q.

Teething Rate?

My 9 month old daughter has now two lower incissors (almost fully developed). I wish to have an estimate of the rate of teething for babies, i.e. the sequence (of the teeth) and estimated time.
This will help in judging whether my daughter's teething rate is normal or not.

Your daughter is rather slow with her teeth as she should have had her 2 lower incisors by the age of 6 months. Babies are very variable with teething so do not compare her with other infants. She will get her full set of milk teeth.
