After having a look I saw he completely tore his upper labial frenulum/frenum (weird name for that piece of skin between your top lip and gum - thank you Google!!) right away from his gum. The tear is right from the centre of his teeth. It looks awful
Do I just leave it as if normally the approach for minor mouth injuries? Will it heal or just heal seperated? Will it do anything to the development of his top front teeth?
I've given him some Nurofen in the hope it takes any edge off the soreness he'll no doubt have in the morning. Let alone how he'll go breastfeeding.
I imagine he took a decent bang to his little teeth as well falling flat on his face....anything I should worry about there?
Talk about mother guilt...I turned my back for 10 seconds
