Is it normal for a one year old to only have two teeth?

Dr. Laura,

I have a 1 yr old and he still only has two teeth on the bottom and he shows no other signs of getting more teeth.

Mollie,
Don't worry, this is well within the range of normal. There are babies who don't have any teeth at all on their first birthdays. Every child is different. Please check with your pediatrician if you're worried.
Blessings,

DOES THIS KIND OF PARENTING WORK?

Folks, she's brilliant. It's wonderful to have parenting experts who don't see the child as the enemy in a locked combat, for one thing. I recommend it.
