Q.

TOOTH DELAY

My baby is almost nine months now and nothing is coming out. I've read that baby's teeth starts coming out at about 5 months and I am now worried. Is there anything I didn't do right or should I consult a dentist. Kindly advise. Worried single mamma

Teeth eruption is highly variable and I would be happy to wait until 12 months if your baby is otherwise well.
