    Hey Moms out there I have a question, my 9 month old daughter has 6 teeth 4 top 2 bottom and the tops ones are gray. She had her 9 month check up and I told them about it and they have no idea what it is, its not bottle rott, and she never had a iron supplement. Since she was a newborn I always give nursery water(formula mix after breastfeeding) and once she got teeth I brush them with grins and giggles with a soft tip finger brush morning and night. They want me to take her to the dentist. She is only 9 months. I am concerned b/c I was reading in rare cases that it could be a blood disease or something wrong with the liver. Has anyone had this happen to their little one or know something about this?? Please advices is welcome. I am so worried. I want them to do an iron test just to make sure that its not to high. Thanks 🙂

    I recall someone posting about Dyspraxia or apraxia ~ anyone recall who it was? The term was mentioned today by my therapist since they feel hunter has trouble with motor planning. We dont know if he has dyspraxia but it is something they will be looking into ~ TX!

    MommytoNatalie – Actually most doctors recommend going to the dentist once several teeth have come in. From what I’ve read the gray stains could be several things but most common are 1. some sort of trama to the teeth or 2. a filmy layer of skin that didn’t break off. From what I’ve read you could use a blunted tooth pick and baking soda to firmly scrape it away without hurting baby’s gums. I’m not sure if I would do this. If in your shoes I would call a ped dentist if your family dentist doesn’t deal with infants and toddlers. They will do about the same but more like when we get our teeth clean. I wouldn’t worry too much but I’d go in to see.

    Grey teeth can also be from iron supplement.. usually given in a liquid vitamin form according to my ‘What to expect the first year’ book. Some formulas are high in iron and can also cause discoloration.. so maybe if your formula feeding or giving a liquid vitamin.. that could be causing her teeth to look grey.

    DOES ANYONE HAVE A BABY WHO WAS TOUNGUE TIED AND HAD TO HAVE THERE TOUNGUE CLIPPED?

    #6768612

    Thanks ladies. He does have a blankie that has taggies all over it, but like you said, it is not the same. 🙁 He also has a pacifier, he has no problem finding that! I’m really thinking it also has something to do with the fact that we just started putting him in his crib…I know, shame on us, but he has slept with us since birth…there were a few months where he was sleeping in his crib, but once he really started teething, he slept much better in bed with us again. I felt pressured to get him to start sleeping in his crib soon, so we put it in our room and have started to re-introduce it. He does fine for naps, but night time, oh my goodness. It is awful. We can get him down fine, but the deal with the blanket makes it impossible to sleep. I put him in our bed tonight, as a ‘test’ to see if that is adding to the blankie problem. I will let you know how it goes in the morning! Have a good night! Hoping for some sleep!! 🙂

    Thanks Bri. As much as I didn’t want to, I bought arm and hammer with peroxide toothpaste and took a little tinny tiny piece of the paste and scrub her top teeth. It came right off. Couldn’t even tell that there was anything wrong before, her teeth are perfect color now. Maybe she ate something and her baby toothpaste did not work to get it off. I am so relieved.. Thanks again.

    If anyone is from Ontario Canada and delivered at either the Oshawa hospital or the Peterborough hospital can you comment on my profile about what it was like…what kind of things they had in the room and so on….what I should bring with me….My town hospital is too small to accommodate me they said. I still go there for my checkups but I need to pick either Oshawa or peterbrough and I wanted to hear what each hospital has since neither website tells me much at all.

    Tonysmommy – I know the feeling. Kekoa loves his tag. It’s funny, it gets stained and nasty. I have to wash his blanket several times a week. He got a Taggie Ball for his birthday but it’s not the same. I know this sounds depressing right now but he will learn to find it on his own. It’s like babies and their binkies. My son is almost 17months and knows where his blanket is at all times and can find his tag within seconds.

    maybe you could buy him a blanket that has tags all over it.. Jon&Kate+8 call them ‘Chewies’… not sure where you can find them but its just a blanket with tag loops all down the sides.
