First Tooth?
November 13, 2012 at 6:41 PM

My son just had his first birthday a couple of weeks ago and STILL has not gotten his first tooth. Is this any cause for concern? When did your babies get their first teeth?

When did your baby get his/her first tooth?

    I don't think it's cause to worry but then again I'm not an expert. DS got his first tooth at 6 months. He is currently cutting tooth #6 and teething so hard. Poor guy. A friend of ours son is going to be 1 next week and he still doesn't have teeth. It will happen:-)

     I wouldn't be concerned about that, I'm sure they will all come in at once.  Which might be nicer that way.

    I think it was 9 months or later.

    As far as I know it's not a reason to be concerned yet.

    Don't worry!  While my daughter surprised me at 4 months with her first tooth, my niece didn't get hers until she was 13 or 14 months. :)

    No need for alarm. It's slower then typical but not a big deal

    No need to worry, they'll come through eventually. Once of my nieces took forever, but at 4.5 she's got a mouth full of teeth.

    My oldest got his first at 10 months and my youngest is just shy of 10 months and no sign of getting any teeth anytime soon.
