Daniel is 14 months old. He has all four of his front teeth, top and bottom. Then there's a little gap, and then he has 4 molars, one in each corner. But he's missing his canine teeth. I've never had a baby whose teeth have erupted in this manner before. Is it in the range of normal? Am I being a worrier? I have a genetic thing going where, in the top row, I am missing two of my incisors. I also have no wisdom teeth, which is a blessing, I guess. But it makes me a little nervous when it comes to my kids' teeth.

Canines come in after the first set of molars. This is how it's supposed to happen. Don't worry!

Thanks! I just don't remember this with my other three. Of course, he's my earliest teether.

eruption patters really vary from child to child. I even saw a baby cut canines first. Oh the mother HATED that the baby looked like a little vampire.

Our 7 mo old has no teeth yet but has 2 lumps in her upper gums where the canine teeth would be. I was wondering if these were really them and set to come in first or what?

annette, at least Daniel has molars! J is still working on those. He has front teeth, top and bottom, and that's it. He has been so crabby, poor kid. He is just miserable. Sounds like your little guy is just taking his time.

My daughter is almost 26 months old, and she still doesn't have any canine teeth. All her other teeth came in relatively early, but there is still no sign of the canines. Should I be worried?

Apparently it's pretty common, so no need to worry!

Daniel still doesn't have his, btw.

Except he really likes to bite. He's the bitiest baby I've ever had. Maybe I should be happy he doesn't have two more teeth.
