my DD is 11 1/2 months and only just cut her 1st tooth and she was underweight and 4 weeks early

I dont think that it always corresponds with being premature. My dd was born at 38 weeks and didnt get her first tooth til almost 9 months and my brothers wee girl who was 10 days overdue didnt get her first tooth til she was 14 months x

I agree, it's variable between all babies. The textbook average is 6-7 months. My ds was 10 weeks early and had his first at 10 months (which if you allow for the prematuirty would have made him 71/2 months ish) however my bestfrinds liitle boy turned one in oct, and had his first in november. There really is no telling so don't worry.

True that children differ vastly as to when their teeth. C had his first at 4 1/2 months, my nephew - born at 37 weeks - cut his first at something over 10 months and my friend's little boy - who was born 2 days after his EDD - didn't cut his first till he was 14 months.
