Swollen Cheeks? user banned
Nov 14th '12

DD just woke up and she's really drooly and her cheeks are swollen. Is this a sign of teething? She has two eye teeth up top, both sets of front teeth (top bottom) two molars on bottom and two molars on top and they've NEVER looked puffy, swollen.

Is there anything else that causes this?

sounds like teething to me. My son's gums were so swollen they looked bruised, his jaws were swollen and I had to keep bibs on him to catch the drool

Yeah, I thought that's what it was, I just think it's really odd that she's gotten in molars before but they've never looked like this. Oh well. She's up and getting lots of snuggles now.
