From what I understand, a milk tooth is just another word for their first set of teeth.

Hmmm... I always thought it was a callus they get on their top lip (in the middle, it's kind of white) from nursing. Both my kids have had it.

Eli has the lip thing too-so cute!It's one of my favorite newborn features!I have never heard it called a milk tooth.Hmmmmmmmmmmmmm

Could it be a canker?(sp?)He was born with this on his top gums like where the pointy tooth would grow.Any other ideas?
