My lo is 9 mos. old. It seems like she has been teething for, but no teeth yet! My oldest was 7 mos. when she cut her first tooth and my middle dd was 5 mos. So, I'm starting to get a little worried. Does anyone else have a lo that doesn't have any teeth yet and are older than 9 mos. old?

Nothing to worry about. My baby book that my mother kept for me says I got my first tooth at 11 months and I have never ever had a cavity. My dd had a tooth at 5 months but she just now got her second at 9 months. My first got two teeth at 8 months. It is nothing to worry about!

Lots of my friends have babies who didn't get their first teeth till 1 year...some even a few months later...I wouldn't worry!

Crystal, my son was about 13 months when this tooth popped, and my daughter is now 7 months w/no teeth. Personally, I LOVE the gummy grin. My son drooled for MONTHS which prompted everyone to announce "oh, he's teething." He drooled profusely thru the summer til his first b-day and tooth appeared. I'll be that my daughter will be the same. As a side note, i never noticed any complications to teething, just increased diaper rash. and lots o' drool.

No worries, my DD did not get her first tooth unitl 11 months and now she is 12 months and 1 week and she is getting her 6th tooth. I am guessing mine waited until she could cut them all at one time...yeesh!

Haha you've had lots of other examples but my dd cut 4 teeth within a few days like around 10 1/2 months then we went on vacation all of her 11th month and it took her about 1 week to pop in 4 more teeth! Shes 1 year. Now when she smiles you can see them all, so cute, but that gummy grin will definally be missed!!

My daughter is almost 13 months and doesn't have any signs of a tooth coming. Every baby different we all eventually get teeth:)

My friends baby didn't get any teeth until he was 18 months old. All her other got teeth by 6 months or so. My 8 month old still does not have teeth.

Thanks for all the replies! I guess I shouldn't worry until she's over a year old. I had a rough night with her last night, she was drooling very badly and has her first bout of diaper rash and also had her first fever during the night. I wonder if it's teething, but with the fever and diarrea I think she might be sick :(

I've heard it's better if they get teeth later rather then sooner cause it helps build stronger teeth. When my husband was a baby he got them around a year and he's 37 and never had a cavity.
