Thank you for your query on Healthcare Magic.

Primary teeth eruption may start from 6 months to 13 months.

And there is a wide variation in the eruption of primary teeth.

So nothing to worry and there is still time for the eruption of the teeth in your child.

Delayed teething is called when there is no teeth eruption even after 13 months of age.

As the age increases, the sleeping time decreases and it is normal.

Nothing to worry about the teething issue and you can discuss with the pediatrician in your next visit.

Hope I have answered your query, if you have any clarification please let me know.
