10mo and no teeth

Do you guys think its weird that Elliot doesn't have any teeth? He'll be 10mo in 3d. All my other kids had the first tooth between 5-7mo. He eats just fine, in fact he only eats table food as he hates baby food. He also drinks out of a cup, and refuses bottles, which is also weird. Anyway, is it bizarre there are no teeth? I'm hoping a public post will make them erupt. LOL, you know how it is around here.

Nope! Abigail's first one didn't come in until 13 months. Danny's was earlier---maybe 9 months? Even now, at 2, she has no canines---just on a slower teeth trajectory. Someone told me that means her teeth will be stronger. I've no idea if that's true or just something someone said to make me feel better about my toothless wonder.

Nah, it's nothing to worry about. But don't be surprised if he gets a bunch at once when they do start coming in. Sarah got her first two teeth at 6 month and didn't get any more until just before her first birthday. Then she got 8 in a month. Ben got 2 at 6 months and didn't get another one until 11 months. Now he has 8. On Thursday he cut two on the same day.

When Elizabeth was a baby my mom asked a family friend who is a dentist when the average age is for a baby to get their first tooth and he said anywhere from 3-12 months. Big help. LOL.

Was just talking to a friend about this. His boy turned 1 last weekend, and his first tooth finally erupted the week before his birthday. It sure would seem like Elliot would follow family convention, though. That boy is a maverick.


Caren: Aaron cuts teeth in multiples, too, but he does it slightly early.

Thanks guys. "3-12mo" LOL!! Real helpful. I *know* its not unseen, but I've never seen it. Glad to see Elliot is in good company. I expect to see all 4 teeth in one day now, Caren start bossing those teeth out. That's how it works at the PPAIVF board.

"maverick" makes me laugh because I know you're using it as a pejorative to tease me. who doesn't think "...I guess that's sort of like a community organizer, except...." or the phrase "my friends" when they hear that descriptor now? Its ruined LOL.

For some reason when I say that word in my head, it always sounds like Tina Fey's impression.

My Mother used to say she was going to get us (myself and my two brothers) uppers and lowers since we didn't have a single tooth until we were about 16months old!!!! No worries...

My oldest was 15 months before he cut 1 and then he got 6 at a time. Course they never seemed to bother him coming in. We had talked to

Nope, not weird at all. Fiona is almost 17 months and only has 4 teeth - the top two just came in a couple of months ago. It looks like her incisors are trying to make an appearance, but who knows when. I've thought for the last 6 weeks she was going to wake up with a mouth full of teeth.

It doesn't slow down her eating either. That girl can eat and the crunchier the better.

My ped also says it's not weird at all. He also says that there is a direct correlation between late teething and late onset of adolescence. I have no idea if that's true or not, but it works for me. lol

eta: She was about 9 1/2 months when the first tooth appeared.
