What determines when teeth come through?
Jul 30, 2010 9:30AM
My DD is 9.5 months and is yet to have one tooth.
What is it that decides when teeth will appear??
Should I be worried she's not got any yet (although has been teething for a while now)?

lol don't worry my ds1 go his first tooth at 11 months and not another until 13 months!!! i say the longer to come through the less time for them to rot!!!! i would say they are through whenever you rub a metal spoon on their wee gums and you can hear the tooth scratch it xxxx

Apparently the later they get them the better, as they get their permanent teeth later.
Ds1 was 10m when 1st one came through and 11m when next one came. However Ds2 (same dad born within 2 years) got his at 18weeks and 2 together. By 10m he has 8 teeth!
So basically they come when they come, nothing determines when or where for that matter! My neighbours twins are 1 in 2 weeks and they have got 2 top teeth in the last couple of weeks.

they come when they come, don't think anything determines it, i know someone who's lo was over a yr before they got their first tooth, but a friend of mine was born with teeth! all a bit random really...probably some genetic factor in there somewhere, so if u and OH both and teeth late on likely hood is ur lo's will follow suit and vice versa, iyswim?

hi everyone, new here but desperate for advice! My son is 1 month old on Tuesday and has been bottle feeding for the past 2 weeks. He has had problems since. He is extremely irritable, I’m sure my Son doesn’t have anytime while awake not crying, he cries ALL the time and I try EVERYTHING with no success. I have been to the hospital and doctors and they are so very unhelpful, they just tell me he has colic and basically I have to deal with it. I am almost certain, and the hospital also said, he has reflux (silent) as he rarely spits up but it is getting far worse and he is becoming more and more irritable, coughing after feeds and in between and starting to refuse feeds, scream, want them, take them and scream again. He has had Carobel from the hospital as they didn’t want to give Gaviscon due to chance of constipation, but it did absolutely nothing for him. He is now simply on infacol but has trouble pooing, which causes him distress, but is very runny. I guess i am I am desperately looking for advice on what to do, as it is increasingly hard with a baby that cries all day and won’t sleep or settle due to milk coming back up. I feel like I’m missing something and not giving him what he needs? HE IS SUCH A HUNGRY BABY! I feed him, change his nappy, cuddle him, sing to him, wind him, put him in swinger, walk round house, car - I am lost! Health visitor has done a referral to dietician however who knows how long this will take! Dad is lactose intolerant. Also, how much does your baby eat, or did eat at 1 month? Mine wants food every 1.5/2 hours! Please help!
