3month old baby...with a really white back gum and hard swollen cheek UPDATE
screaming bloody murder for half an hr..nothing would sooth him. anyone have any ideas what it could be?
*Edited now that i am at my computer* The baby is not mine, but my SO's ..we only get an hour and a half with him every tuesday and thursday. We noticed the white starting last week and thought that it may be teething , his cheek was a little swollen but not hard. This week , nothing would sooth him...his fingers did the trick but only for a few seconds.
We are trying to figure out all possibilities ...because i have a 10 yr old , and this just seems weird to me as well.
UPDATE: we emailed the mother and asked how he was doing and asked to know if she takes him to the Dr. what they say ...she emailed back saying she has no intention on taking him to the Dr , and that she doesnt know why we thought he was in any pain ..apparently he is acting normal. And that he was probably throwing a temper tantrum because he was tired.
However , in the communication book she had stated that he has been waking up during the night , and that she has been having to pick him up for him to go back to sleep.
Something doesn't sound right at all ...either she is totally ignoring her child , or she is giving him orajel and not telling us this information!.
We are unable to take him to the Dr the next time we have him, for reasons i do not want to go into ...i'll just say the mother is vindictive ..but we see him under supervision.
