    Hi girls :)

    just looking for some reassurance. I have an 8 and a half month old little lady and she is still showing no signs of teething.

    all my friends who have babies all have at least one tooth now some being as young as 5 months.

    i know its probably very very rare but im just worrying that she isnt going to get any teeth?

    sorry if this sounds silly. any help greatly appreciated xx

    My first 2 teethed late, around 8-9 months for the first tooth, I think? It's fine and actually makes for stronger teeth. They were late to loose their baby teeth, as well.

    Hi hun, My lo has been teething (symptoms) since around 3/4 months but had no gums or actual sign of a tooth coming through at all then at 10 months one of the bottom ones popped though then a few weeks later the other bottom one popped through.
    At 11 months now they are both only half way out and theres no sign of any more teeth for now.
    Its very very rare that your baby doesnt have any teeth! One might pop through when you least expect it and you might have one of those rare dream like babies that dont get grumpy when they are teething - I hear they do exist! lol
    Im sure your lo will have at least one by around their first birthday but I met a woman a few months ago who told me her 2 sons didnt have any by 18 months! They were talking a few words with their gummy little mouths - im happy to say they had all their teeth at 5 years old lol.
    Dont worry xxx

    Maddison's first two teeth have just cut through at just over 10 months. I also worried a bit as everyone I know's babies seemed to get their teeth relatively young but I happened to put my hand in her mouth to retrieve something last week and their was something there finally :happydance:

    My friends baby didn't start until after she was one. She is 3 now and has them all. My friend said the Doctors don't do anything until they are at least one so don't worry at all.

    My sister didn't get teeth til she was much older than that. Now her teeth are gorgeous, lovely and strong and she's never had a filling, if there is nothing else going on with her that you're concerned about then wait til after she's one to get her checked :flower:

    Nate is 9 months and still no teeth. Im not really worried. The HV said if they don't get any by 14 months they usually send them to the dentist for an xray but she's never known of a child to just not have teeth.
