    All the post of first teeth etc got me to thinking. At what age did your premature baby get his/her first tooth?

    Noah is 9 months/ 6 1/2 months old corrected. He's been teething for months and still no teeth.

    My LO is not a premmie but i just wanted to mention that my lil girl has only just got her teeth the last week and she was teething for ages, and i know there is only a few days between our LO's.
    So i wouldn't worry if he hasn't got them, sorry for rambling probalbly hasn't helped either x

    There's a baby at breastfeeding cafe who is 23 weeks old (3 weeks corrected age) and she has a great big tooth! :shock: I suppose she would have been one of the ones who would have been born with a tooth?? lol She's doing amazingly and is even eating jars of food already. I'm amazed at how forward she seems...

    Hiya Van West & Turbo,

    Dont worry ( saying that i never follow my on advice) , premmies are always delayed and do not follow any pattern but they will get there.

    Looking back at her Diary Charlotte was teething for 2 months before she cut her first tooth last August at 13 months corrected . In the last 4 weeks another 5 teeth have come through and another two are about to cut.

    Dont worry , no baby is the same and premmies are delayed but will get there . I have to warn you once they start teething expect much crying pooing and sickness, and sleepless nights

    Our little one only just managed to sit, with help, for the first time
    at 15 months old . a few weeks ago but has come on amazingly since.
    no baby is the same , she or he will do it in their own time, just be patient and trust in them

    we wish you all the best and keep in touch


    alasdair, Samantha and charlotte

    Lauren was only 5 weeks early but still didn't cut teeth till nearly 11 months and so did Abi. Toby was 4 weeks early and cut his first teeth at 5months, he's 11 months now and has had 8 teeth for ages. he looks so funny with so many teeth at such a young age:rofl:

    Ellen showed signs for teething from about 4 months (so corrected 0 i guess lol) but nothing appeared till after she had pneumonia the first time so she would have been about 14 months old.

    Angelynn is 8 months adjusted and her first tooth is coming in. I was suprised because I didn't think she'd get one until jan-feb.
    I wouldn't go by the books though. I think it's a general guideline but all babies are different. So don't worry it will come.:)
