sticking out tongue? normal? Kristin B. +down.45+ 1 child; Montgomery, Alabama 2026 posts

all of a sudden, a few minutes ago, DS started sticking out his tongue repeatedly, and he even feels of it with his finger. He's had his two bottom front teeth for about 2 months and never did this, but his top two teeth broke through 2 days ago. Is this tongue "thing" happening because of teething or should I be worried?



He's 8 months old.

Ok. Thanks ladies. I was just afraid that he might have been having some kind of allergic reaction.

Yeah...
I was afraid that his tongue might have been swelling from an allergic reaction of some sort, and he was sticking it out because it felt different.
