Where Are His Teeth

My ds is 10 months old and has the 2 bottom front teeth. He got the first at 6 1/2 months and the next about 2 weeks after that. But he has gotten no more teeth since. It has been over 3 months now and I'm starting to wonder why. I asked the doc, but he didn't say much. All the other babies I see seem to get a tooth, and then continue to get one every few weeks to a month after that. I know babies can be late or early to get teeth, but I thought once it started the rest would ust follow on a somewhat normal course. Does this seem normal? Also, it doesn't seem like he will be getting one anytime soon, I check his gums every so often but no bumps, and he does not seem irritated.

My niece is 10 months old and she only has one tooth. She got hers the same time my daughter got 2 teeth (my daughter was 6 months) But it just varies. They come when they want. My brother didn't get any til 1 and it came slowly after that.

Oh and if they stop, typically at one they want to have you take them to a dentist so they cam cut their gums, which doesn't seem to pleasant. But since he has 2 they won't really worry about it. Its usually only if they are 1 without any

Every baby/toddler is different. Getting teeth isn't like hitting milestones. My ds got his 1st two at 8 months. Then his next two at 10 months old. Now at just about 14 months old he still only has the 4 teeth. Toddlers should have all their milk teeth by 2-2.5 years old.

sorry I have to correct myself...should have all their milk teeth by 3 years old. I always thought it was by 2 years old but after searching on the net quickly it seems like it isn't a worry until they are 3 years old.

My dd got her first tooth at 13 months - and than she got 3 in a week!!! So they just come when they come - but we were wondering for ages when they were going to come!

My dd got her 1st 2 just before she turned 5 months but then nothing happened for almost 3 months, and then she suddenly got 3 in one week. So i wouldn't worry too much, i'm sure they are on there way.
