Hi!

My baby has what appears to be a skin tag on her gums. She often makes a clicking sound when she nurses so I treated us for thrush but that did nothing.

I'm now wondering if this "skin tag" is to blame for her clicking.

Has anyone else ever noticed anything like this on their baby? Maybe it's normal and I am just now noticing it.

thank you

Lindsey..I can't picture what you are talking about. My oldest daughter had white spots on her gums from around two months that looked like the beginnings of teeth, but they eventually went away. Could it be one of those ulcer sores?? Is that even possible in an infant?

it's the same color as the rest of her gums but it's a piece of skin that hangs off her gums.

it doesn't look sore or irritated.

Lindsey,

My dd had a skin tag that hung off on the gum behind her lower lip...it was a little, pointy piece of skin the same color as her gums. It did not affect her nursing and eventually it went away on its own.
