View Full Version : Bub is 7 months and no teeth!
Hi everyone, well my bub is 7 months and still has no teeth or any signs of them coming soon, is this normal? Occasionally he gets grumpy with bright red cheeks but there is nothing in his mouth. When is the normal age for "pegs" to start going in his mouth? Im a bit concerned because i have read that most babies at 6 months get their first tooth.
Yes some babies are just late teethers and it can be a genetic thing. My ds was 11 months before he got a tooth. Don't worry they will come eventually. Just enjoy all those gummy smiles :D
My daughter didnt get her first tooth until she was just over 7 months and that was the 'norm' in our playgroup. My friends son just got his first tooth and he just turned 8 months.
My DD didnt get her first tooth until she was about 8 months. On the other hand a lady I know's son is only 8 1/2 months and has 9 teeth! My point is that every baby is different. Your baby is definately not behind! :)
Thanks everyone, i was really worried he was behind. Yes i will definetly enjoy his gummy smiles while it lasts! :D
Some babies can actually be born with teeth...imagine that, esp learning to b/feed if you take that avenue...ouch on day one!!!
sugar n spice
My son is 9 mnths and has no teeth though today it looks like his bottom two are cutting through. My first son didn't get his first tooth till he was 13 mnths and then he got them all one after eachother. I found he actually got all his teeth in the end before other kids that started get them younger. I've been told the longer it takes for their teeth to cut through the better quality they are :)
Don't worry! Nathan started teething at 4 months, he had the works drooling, unsettled, red cheeks, nappy rash but he didn't get any teeth till he was 11 months.
I just hope our little one doesn't have the same trouble, though he's 7 months in a couple of days, and still no pegs for him either :(
Tayla is 9 months and no teeth either.
She is fed up with me sticking my finger in her mouth for a feel all the time haha! :D
My Chloe is 7 & a half mths & she doesn't have any toothy pegs either. :)
Add us to the list too...DD is 8 and a half months and no teeth yet either!
Don't fret! My DD was 15 months before she got her first tooth!
DS is just over 7 months and no teeth here either. Showed signs of teething for ages and then just stopped.
Max has no teeth either and still isnt showing signs..ah well....
One of my girlfriends little girl didnt get teeth until she was 15mths but 2 days ago (shes now 5yrs old) One of her top teeth fell out and we were both amazed..so she took Tiara off to the dentist and he said her big teeth are cutting through now...OMG!!!
Definatly don't worry :D My DS did not get any teeth til he was 17mths :eek: He is now 2.5yrs and we are still waiting for him to get 2 on the bottom...not the middle ones, but the one on either side of them...and also his 2yr old molars :)
If no one believes me thats ok...I have posted this a few times and no one seems to...
tyler is 8weeks 2day.... and she has had a tooth come up and go down for about 2weeks, i didnt know they could start so early anyway my doctor told me they could start early on but could take up to 8-9 months before they get there frist tooth
Obviously these babies just like being gummy!! :D
