My 2 1/2 year old was playing in our living room last night and fell into our fireplace hearth. He smacked his mouth/chin area on the wooden edge and shoved his front 4 teeth back into his mouth. Surprisingly they are not loose, but that means the whole top part of his mouth is messed up. He also bit through his bottom lip and has tons of little bruises. The dr's couldn't do a whole lot and so we get to go see our dentist tomorrow. I am so worried about him and his speech as been affected by this due to the new placement of his teeth and swollen mouth.
He can only eat soft, mushy stuff....does anyone have any ideas for food/meals?
Has anyone else been through something similar and have any words of advice for a nervous mommy?
I'm also 10 weeks pregnant and have had major diarreah since the moment this happened. I have the worst nerves! I'm trying to replinish my fluids...do you think I should let my dr. know even though it's stopped?
