Default Update on Carson

His teeth (at least the front ones) on his PWS side are SLIGHTLY longer it looks like, but not too bad. He did get an eruption cyst with his last tooth on that side, I don't know if this is related to PWS or not, but my pediatrician seemed to indicate it could happen to any baby. Before the last tooth came through he had a HUGE purplish swollen spot, I thought it was either PWS related or an infection or something, but once the tooth popped through it went away, apparently the tooth bursts the cyst. This can be alarming, as the baby will have some blood in their mouth, fortunately for me, it happened to Carson while he was sleeping. Just an FYI if anyone else experiences this so you don't get freaked out like I did!!
