hi mummies, is it normal for 9.5 month old baby not to be teething? my gal is on total breast milk and started solids already (fussy eater.. eats very little)..
I'm concerned that she is not teething due to lack of vitamins or calcium?
dont wry, some babies started teething very fast, lik dear son, 4mth+. while some will started at 9-10 mths or even 1yo.. =)
Yea, agree with the mummies. Every baby is different. Iggy has his only 9mth+ and till now. Is still 8 only, 4 upper 4 lower.
Yes I agree that diff bbs grow at a diff stage....even walking
dont worry, my boy is now 9.5 mos, and just had one little speck of white appearing last week - lower central incisor. we wondered why no tooth for so long, but we never got worried. i eat lots of cheese and drink lots of milk, and my boy drinks mummy's milk, so can't be not enough calcium. =)
It's ok. dont't worry. Baby's full set of teeth can take up to 3 years to be fully grown out.
Yup, every baby is different. My No. 2 sprouted his teeth early compared to No. 1, but No. 1's teeth sprouted very quickly once the 1st one came out. No. 2 took a longer time to sprout the same no. of teeth.
thanks mummies for the reply.. okie.. so I guess I'm too anxious.. so got to wait patiently..any mummies could advise how to make my baby drink at longer interval.. my gal is taking 100-120ml every 2 hours.. at this age of 9 months, she should be drinking at 4 hours interval right? when I try to lengthen to 3 hours, she will also take at most 130ml.. any suggestions?
Not to worry, some baby's progress might be slower. My girl is also slow in teething, walking n learning to sit upright. She only starts teething at 1 year old and now she's 17mths+, she only have a total of 6 teeth now with just 2 more popping out just last wk (4 up n 2 down).
And i also did ask my pediatrician on my girl's slow teething process, he says that its better to teeth later than earlier (but of cos not later than 18mths) so that their teeth will be more lasting as in their teeth won't come off so early n this makes their adult teeth life span last longer.
apollo: she sometimes will also reject and drag the hours.. I'm used to it coz she has been fussy with milk and solids since birth..
annie03: thanks for the assurance...now I know she is not the odd one out
