My 9 month old DD is teething. She's been teething since 3 months old and never seemed really bothered. 2 front bottom teeth came in at about 6 months old without issues. Last night, I noticed that her gums are swollen in the 2 front top spots for her teeth. this morning, I noticed a little red dot where her tooth will eventually break the surface. I am worried that this is a problem. I must mention that she has also bumped her head here and there on the couch or the baby gate - so I'm wondering if she hurt her mouth once and we didn't notice. Help!!!! I just wanted to check with MDC before freaking out too much.
