My son just turned one today (18th of March) and has no teeth yet but the top ones are just coming through the gums.
There is no need to be alarmed that your daughter has no teeth yet, you will be fine
My little boy is 8 and a 1/2 months and has two botom teeth. I have heard that it is better if they get there teeth later not as painful. The only prob is that they can't chew lumps, its good if you are breeast feeding though.

I know it is later than some babies but it has'nt made any difference to her.
Also I am still breatfeeding, so very grateful.
She seems to be late in doing everything at this stage, some babies are.
There always seems to be something for us mums to worry about.

My first son had cut all his teeth by the time he was 12 months old . I had lots of troubles trying to brush his teeth.
So maybe with the later teething you might find it easier and she might be more co-operitive in brushing them and keeping them clean.

her first tooth. Actually my doctor told me the longer it takes the stronger the teeth will be.

I wouldn't worry too much about it. They can still eat lumpy foods etc, as thier gums are effecient enough to do this, just don't go giving them a piece of steak. wink
