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

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.

How do I keep my toddler from putting things in his nose and mouth?

How do I keep my toddler from putting things in his nose and mouth?

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

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.

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

Red pin prickrash on both cheeks on face with small light blue bruise close to her mouth had itp below 3 as a toddler 4 years old now and on pinamox?

Umm, hard to say.: Heat rash. Viral rash. Allergy rash. Infectious rash. Eczema. Contact dermatitis. The best strategy is to determine the source of the rash then address that specifically. This should be an easy question to pose to your pediatrician during the 4-year old well visit. Without actually viewing the rash and "bruise" in person, any answer would be but a guess. Your daughter deserves better than a guess. ...Read more

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 more

FlossSpan: Try one of the flossing devices that can be used with one hand. They look something like a slingshot with a forked end that has floss between the two forks. The other hand can be used to hold the tongue or cheeks and lips away. Also, some types of floss are 'flavored' to improved patient acceptance. ...Read more
