My nephew is 1.5 yo. Yesterday he had a bad fall: he had to have 4 stitches on his tongue and broke his two top teeth. The poor kiddo is a late teeter like everybody in this family and only had 4 teeth so far. Now the top two teeth are not just chipped, they are gone.

Anybody had to deal with an injury like this? Did it affect your LO’s feeding? How about his speech development? Did you need the help of a speech therapist?

Any insight would be greatly appreciated. My sister is rightfully so pretty freaked out. She also lives in a part of the world where she doesn’t have access to a ton of medical services so that makes it even harder... thanks!
