My child is nearly 8 months and has no teeth. She is constantly chewing on her hands and dribbling everyone constantly says these are teething signs but this would mean she has been teething for 4 months? Does this sound developmental more than teething?

  • Sounds like teething indeed. Teething is a very long process. Mind you, these teeth have to work themselves down through the jaw bones millimeter per millimeter.



  • My daughter started teething at 12 weeks and her first 2 teeth popped up at 6 months old :) where as my little sister didn’t get teeth until she was about 11 months old!
    Very much sounds like teething so hopefully not long now!
