Q.

Underbite

I realised yester my LO has a very slight underbite: the bottom two toofies are infront of his front two toofies. Do any of you have this problem? Should I immediate throw the dummy away and consult an orthodontist or do we just leave things and see what happens when he is older? Currently 15 months.

If the underbite is very noticeable it is probably worthwhile asking a dentist to see your little boy.
