Q.

Gums blue from teething

Hi doc.
Just want to find out, is blue/black gums normal when teething. My boy''s 14 months old, has 8 teeth, but the rest is very swollen and one is actually blue. How long do they take to break through when they are blue like that?

This is normal and there is no need for concern. Your baby's teeth will soon appear.
