My 3 yr old bumped her mouth on the toddler rail of her bed pretty hard. Her front tooth is lightly loose, a little bleeding & her lip is swollen?
Call your dentist.: You should visit your dentist's office and let them take a look. The tooth may need care immediately, in the future or not at all. It may turn color, and the developing permanent teeth are also at risk from this type of injury. Right now is the time for initial assessment, & an x-ray. Often nothing needs to be done immediately (especially if your child is improving and out of pain). ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

Is head crawling in 10.5 months old infant normal? He is also doing weird hand movement (twirling his right hand).

A general pediatrician should be able to perform the initial exam and determine if further work up or referral is necessary. ...Read more
My 4yr old son complains his mouth hurts under his tongue. He has a mild tongue-tie, could that be the problem?
NWTK without: Honestly, there is no way to know without actually examining your son. Merely taking some guesses serves no one. I highly recommend that you take him to a pedodontist (or a general dentist that treats children at this age). It's unlikely the ankyloglossia has anything to do with the discomfort. He may just have a canker sore or mild abrasion from food or the toothbrush, but still needs to be seen. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
My 14months son has white stains on his top teeth. He sucks his thumb. He 'brushes' them without toothpaste. Is this normal?
Not normal: If the teeth did not come in this way, then this is the start of tooth decay. If they did come in this way then they are malformed. Regardless, you need to have your child evaluated by a pediatric dentist. Also you should be brushing their teeth for them. A 14 month old is not skilled enough to brush their own teeth. Thumb sucking will not cause stains but can change his bite. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

Oh No!: If you are worried that your 6 month old may have Angelman's syndrome, pl rest in peace as most cases have significant developmental delays that your infant is not showing. The best thing would be to let your baby's pediatrician assess him during his 6 month visit.

I noticed am orange color on my 8 week olds tongue this morning and he keeps putting his hands to his mouth? He is strictly formula fed.
Vitamins/thrush: If your baby is taking a vitamin supplement, those usually are orange and can make the tongue appear an orange color. Also, newborns can get oral thrush, which makes a white coating on the tongue. This white coating is easily dyed by vitamins. If you can't wipe this coating off with a wet towel and the baby seems in pain, either see your pediatrician, or upload a pic to me for an inbox consult ...Read more

Skin hates drool: Excess exposure to saliva can cause skin irritation. Thumbsuckers have excess saliva/drool on their thumbs which is known to irritate the skin on the thumb as well as around the mouth. Eye rubbing, however, is brief and mostly occurs with the back of a closed fist (not the thumb), so minimal contact with the saliva occurs. In theory, it could irritate the skin, but not likely. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
