A 10 Month Old Baby Has Not Yet Grown Teeth And His Back Still Looks Hunched?
Hello, my son aged 10m4d has not yet grown a single one but the lower gums have seen a white and hard line. Is that normal? R nThe second question, my son can sit alone without help when he was 10m, but how come his back still looks hunched, isn’t he sitting up straight as usual? Is there something wrong with the spine ??
Hello Mrs. Farwa,
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com
I will answer mother's questions one by one. First, regarding the problem of the growth of the teeth of the mother's child.
Teething starts from the womb, namely from the 6th week of pregnancy. A white crown protruding from the jawbone is called an eruption event. This eruption of milk teeth begins to appear when the baby is approximately 6 months old.
Some of the causes of baby teeth growing:
genetic malnutrition infections that occur when the baby is in the womb, for example rubella, an endocrine gland disorder, other causes that are still unknown. The growth of children's teeth is important during the child's development. This is because the growth of children's teeth is in line with changes in the consistency of their diet and diet.
Second, about hunchbacking in babies. This can be caused by:
certain nutritional deficiencies such as calcium, congenital defects, incorrect position when carrying or due to the wrong use of pillows, spinal injuries, certain diseases such as disorders of the muscles, nerves, and bones. if the results of the spine examination are normal. then there is no need for action.
The mother's child may need to check:
blood X-rays bone scan MRI CT-scan However, before doing the examination, you should first consult a Pediatrician.
Hope it can help, ma'am.
