Today I was playing with Princess A and I noticed that her back gums are black and blue. At first I though maybe she had sucked on a pen or eaten blue paper but then I realized that her gums were actually bruised. I freaked out and called the doctor right away. She said it is a completely normal part of teething and sometimes the gums get bruised when the new teeth are breaking through so i should stop worrying.
I know this should make me feel better but it doesn’t. Just looking at Princess A’s black and blue gums makes me have sympathy teething pains!
When I googled it not much came up so I started to freak out again. I know I need to listen to Princess A’s pediatrician! It would make me feel better if I knew Princess A isn’t the only baby who has gotten bruised gums during teething… so let me know if you experienced this with your kids and what you did to make them feel better!
