How late can a baby start having teeth? My baby is already 9 months old and has no teeth yet... Should I be concerned or is this normal?
Not typical, but: That's not typical but within normal limits. It's about time for you to take your child to a pedodontist for his\her first check-up anyway. Often, teeth can be felt below the gum line by a dentist when they may not be apparent to you. ...Read more

A baby is 1 year and till now he has no teeth at all and he's not feed by breast .Why? Is ir normal or not?
Not unusual: Some children do not begin to get teeth until 18 months, some as early as 4 months. Best possible 1st b'day present, take your child to a qualified pediatric dental specialist (for the same reasons you see a pediatrician) to evaluate dental development, jaw development, care of new baby teeth, discussion about fluorides, and for your child to get used to the dental office environment.

Some babies have teeth at birth and some not until after 15mo. You might find some good basic information at www.healthychildren.org. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
My baby is 8 months.He has started waking up after every hour or so at night since last month. Tried giving more milk and teething gel.Still no teeth.
Sleep issues: Some normal infants do not erupt teeth until 15-18 mo.I see no relationship of "teething" to sleep behavior. What is common at that age is emergence of separation anxiety, when baby realizes you are more important than other caretakers. All of your efforts, while loving, may be teaching baby to get up at night.Wait for 5 min before you check at night, then verify baby is not in need, before leavin ...Read more
No real concern: The eruption pattern of teeth is genetically determined, so there is really nothing that you can do to speed things along. I have noticed over the course of 30+ years that children who are "late bloomers" re their primary teeth also have delayed eruption for their secondary teeth... just food for thought. ...Read more

Teething patterns: Teething patterns in infants is highly variable. Some babies don't get their first tooth until after one year of age.
