Get teeth later than a baby born at term? DD2 is almost 9 months (7adjusted) and there isn't a single tooth or any sign of one coming anytime soon. DD1 had at least 4 teeth by 7 months.

And just because she has grown so much, a few comparison pics!!

Yeah she's teeny. At almost 9 months weighs 14 lbs. She can still fit into a few 3 month onesies.

Did they all come in pretty fast after the first initial tooth?

Sweet gummy smiles!!!! My son was a 38weeker and he didn't get teeth until almost 9 months. My DD was a 35 weeker and she was the same. I think some kids just sprout them later than others. 


Yeah I'm finding that out. Her Dr isn't concerned at all but until recently I didn't know it could be so long before she even got her first one.

Oh ok. My DD was a 32 weeker so sounds like it just varies from baby to baby and how many weeks gestation they were when born has nothing to do with it.

Your nieces baby was pretty small for a 32 weeker. How is she doing now?

My 30 weeker is now 9m(7) and still doesn't have teeth but his sister (3y) had all of her teeth at 9 months.  I was wondering the same about teeth too

Nope. My oldest got his in 2s and 4s. By 17 months he had all his teeth ( excluding 2 yr molars).. i cant remember exactly when but i wanna say first 2 were at 4 mos. They kept rolling in after that. He was a 33wkr. My middle was a 34wkr and his were a little slower to come in.
