brown spots on his teeth.. PIOG

my son is 10 months old and has 4 teeth 2 top and 2 bottom.. i just noticed a small yellowish spot on 1 of his top teeth.what is this??
has anyone elses had this happen? i did some research and i cant figure out what it might be. some sites say flourosis but he doesnt get flouride except maybe from our tap water but that isnt very often. others say tooth decay but at 10 months.. seriously?? we didnt start solids till 6 months he didnt get his first tooth till 6 1/2 months and we have brushed them everyday since. he doesnt get juice but maybe once a week if that and even then its watered down. he is still nursing at night but only once but he does fall asleep nursing on occasion. could that be it??

i have made him an appointment to see a pediatric dentist next week.
this is driving me crazy.. any advice would be great..

  • bottle rot? it will be ok no matter what it is.. his baby teeth will fall out and the adult teeth will not have it.. but it is better to have him checked

    he has never had a bottle his whole life.. he just started with a sippy cup within the last month i feel like a bad mom for letting this happen..
