Teething and cruising...

My 7 month old has two teeth on bottom and will be getting atleast one upper any day now. He has also been pulling himself up and cruising alot. Lately, almost everytime he goes "plop" on his butt, his mouth bleeds alittle. Has anyone else had this happen? Is it something I should be worried about or is it normal?

  • I haven't heard of that, I'd at least do a bit of internet research and make a couple of phone calls. Does his mouth bleed or the gums near the cutting teeth?

  • It's just a little blood from where his new teeth are coming in. Conveniently placed right over his only two teeth.

  • It's probably just that when he plops down his bottom teeth cut into the tender gums above them. However, I might call his doctor or dentist just to make sure everything's okay. Good luck!
