Boo-boo Baby!

Last night our little cutie baby had an accident. She was sitting in a small chair, when Cole ran by and knocked the chair over. She bit her top lip really badly. She also ripped the little piece of skin that attaches the upper gums to the top lip. She bled profusely and was very upset. She was comforted ONLY by Mommy giving her an ice cold baba. Her lip was so swollen and black last night that I wasn't sure if she'd be able to eat today. Her swollen lip was as big and round as her nose. She is fine today, of course. She has small scabs on her top lip and is still sore inside her mouth. She will heal nicely.

Hi It's Aunt Marc. I was a Dental Assistant for 15 years, that was several years ago. Anyway, most kids at some point tear that tissue - it's called a frenum (I think, it's been a while). If the tissue is too big and isn't torn from some kind of a fall, the dentist sometimes has to cut it anyway. You're right they do bleed like crazy. Hope she's feeling better, you too - that must have been scary.
