well what does his Pedi say? That's where you'd get your most reliable info. I have never heard of it, but who knows?

If you have a family dentist or a children's denist, maybe you can ask him/her? Sometimes they may know a little more..........Hope you find something out!

Doctors will generally cut their gums open at 18 months if no teeth have started to come through on there own. My cousins had to have it done!

My DD is 1 and only has 2 teeth, no signs from the any other the others yet.  She got those two at about 10 months and 11 months.  They say the longer it takes for them to come in the healthier they'll be (less cavities.)  lets hope.

I have also been told the longer teeth take the come out, the better quality the teeth are!!!
