Is There Health Concerns For A Toddler Sticking Tongue Out To One Side
My toddler is one year old & he has a tongue tie. How do I know of it will affect his speech or not?
You won't yet:
Honestly, ones that look terrible may cause no speech issues and others that seem mild can cause severe ones.
If your boy has issues with intelligibility of his speech (compared to other kids his age), have him checked out. A speech therapist or peds ENT would be able to assess this if your pediatrician isn't sure.
At this point if it isn't causing issues I wouldn't stress about it. ...Read more

Not specifically: Most women will have had the viral infection that produces HFM in childhood and be immune for their lifetime. I do see the germ pass to adults occasionally. At 21 weeks you baby has formed all its basic structure, so the most vulnerable period has passed. I know of no reported HFM effects to the fetus if a mother becomes infected. You should know in a week or so if you get it. If so let your OB know. ...Read more

My toddler is having a whitish tongue and foul smelling breath. She also has an occasional runny nose and little bit of coughing. What's the reason?
Catarrh or thrush: Sounds like a bit of an upper respiratory infection, likely viral, could be oral thrush. I think an examination by the pediatrician should be sufficient to solve the problem.

Watch for any elevated temperature or fever and report right away. ...Read more
I am prone to this cold sores and even have one now about three days ago I noticed a small bump on the left side of my tongue it is not painful I was just wondering if it could be a cold sore spread into my tongue or my health anxiety makes me think it's
Not a cold sore: Cold sores occur on the outside of the mouth/borders of lips, not in the mouth and are caused by the herpes virus. Canker sores, which are not caused by the herpes virus occur in the mouth, and are typically painful. This could just be an enlarged tongue papilla, which is common and not a problem. Have your doctor check it to be sure. ...Read more
Ridgeline like bumps running perpendicular to frenulum underneath tongue on both sides of mouth and one movable hard bump on floor of mouth underneath tongue. Are they blocked salivary ducts? What could cause them? They are painless, just concerning.
Keep out of reach: Toddlers instinctively put everything in their mouths because it might be food. Do a sweep of your house and get everything that isn't nailed down out of his reach. And brace yourself for the next stage, when he starts climbing to reach stuff he can't get to now. That's the reality of rearing children - it gets more and more aggravating 'til they graduate from college. But grandchildren are great! ...Read more
Depends: It depends on what kind of sores and how many sores.

Strep is sensitive to antibiotics but the viruses must run their course. ...Read more
My toddler seems to choke and gag on food a lot. Could he have a swallowing disorder or possibly putting too much good in his mouth?
Both: Toddlers seem to learn over time the speed and amount of food they can swallow at one time, some easier than others. This is more frequent if they are multitasking while feeding. If it happens with most meals and textures, a fluoroscopic study with the guidance of an occupational therapist can define disordered swallowing. ...Read more

Can a toddler swallowing a foreign object cause vomiting six hours later? No proof he ate anything I just worry he put something in his mouth.
Access to batteries?: What was it that happened 6 hours beforehand? If he is able to swallow liquids normally, I would not be too concerned about a foreign object unless he had access to a small battery that he may have swallowed. In that case he should be x rayed. Also if you suspect coin ingestion, xray to be sure it cleared esophagus. If he has persistent vomiting, of course you need to speak with his physician. ...Read more
