It's a pretty big chunk- mostly off one side. My neighbor's girl had to have the tooth pulled when she chipped it. This seems to be what others have said, too, b/c the tooth can die due to the chip and then infect the adult tooth below. I'm going to have it looked at and possibly filed, though I'm unsure what that would entail with a baby. I know when I chipped a tooth when I was young, I had it filed and it was no big deal, but with a baby, I don't know how that would be done except traumatically. The problem is that it's sharp and it hurts when he nurses.
Of course I'm all upset over this. I cried several times last night. I'm so frustrated that my kids keep injuring themselves on their faces, especially. This was a ridiculous situation where Avalon was having a tantrum in the bath tub, Austin was demanding his PJ's be put on b/c he was cold, and dh had left the scene to go to the bathroom b/c he was frustrated with everyone. While I was attempting to dress Austin, Avery toddled off to the bathtub where Avalon was making a loud fuss and just as I turned to follow him, knowing he would either play in the toilet or try to get in the bath tub, I saw him trip and fall. He let out that terrible hurt cry with giant sobs. Dh didn't even come out to see what was wrong. I was so upset at what had happened and that he didn't come out to comfort either of us. When he did finally come out, he just went about the night as usual. When I told him he had chipped his tooth, he seemed nonplussed and couldn't understand my feelings either. I HATE it when we are not on the same page like this. I'm still fuming this morning.
