My ds2 is 6 wks old. He has a "bump" (about the size of a pea) on his forehead - at the hairline just above the temple - that the doctors have thought to be either a calcium deposit or "fatty tissue" deposit. It's been there since birth. FWIW, he was born at 42 wks at 11.51 pounds via c/s after 24 hours natural (non medicated) labor at home with 2 hours pushing. He was in the NICU for 1 wk for "infection". He is strictly breast fed.
After being home for about a wk, DH noticed a "bump" on his lower right gum down on the side of it. Initially, we thought maybe he was getting a tooth in the wrong spot. But, now I really don't think it's a tooth for a couple of reasons. 1) it doesn't look like a tooth "formation" (you know, with the blistery look initially, then popping up and going back, etc) and 2) it looks more like a large pimple, but is hard, 3) I've noticed another couple of spots like that on the other side lower gum - also raised - and on the upper gum, but not a raised bump - just a white spot. I believe all of these oral "bumps" / spots have been there since birth they are just not in typically noticeable places. I don't know if there is a correlation between the forehead bump and oral spots. Oh and the bump on his forehead is not white, it is skin with a bump under the skin.
Has anyone seen anything like this? Any ideas as to what it might be??? I'm not worried per se, but it does bother me!
