My little girl cut her first two teenth 2 weeks ago! I was so sick of people telling me she was 'teething' from about 3 months, because of her red cheeks and dribbling. When she actually did cut teeth there was not a rosy cheek in sight, but the nappy rash, clinginess, irritability and sleepness nights i really could have done without. My older brother didn't cut teeth until he was 18 mths old so it may be a family thing. I have been told though that the longer it takes to teeth, the longer they will keep them as adults. It may be an old wives tale, but it may shut up smug mothers whose children got their teeth earlier. Also you may find when your little girl does teeth, that she gets them one after another. Not much fun for you, but it probably won't be as spread out as it is for earlier teethers.
