Hello to all the parents out there.. just a general discussion .. when did your child get his/her firth tooth? i have a 13 month old daughter with no teeth yet.. what r your views on that
| Jun 26, 2012
Hey isha, my daughter started teething around 8months but i have seen that it is can be different for each child.... Just when a child is about to get his/ her first teeth there are a few tell tale signs; the jaw will become sensitive , it will become hard or swell up ; some babies start to drool a lot; they start wanting to chew on teethers and giving them cold teethers really soothes them ; some babies have a decline in their appetite and stomach upsets are fairly common . You can see if your baby had any of the symptoms showing and that should give you an idea on when the teeth are finally going to arrive.. and if it is really bothering you , why don't you consult a pediatrician... but all in all i'd say chill... it is bound to happen and it will :-)

Hi Isha. I know I'm really late in replying to your post. I hope your daughter has popped her first tooth by now. But I just wanted to share my experience wi you. My daughter, now 3yrs, got her first tooth a few weeks short of turning one. I can understand your concern and anxiety. She seemed to be teething forever, but the tooth never came. One of my friends had the same concern for her son and mentioned it to the pediatrician at one of his check ups. The doctor in turn asked her if she saw any child without teeth ;) Well, what she actually meant was it may vary at what age babies get their first tooth, but they all eventually do.
