How can I stop my babys tongue bleeding?
my 9 month baby felt and bit his tongue hard now it wont stop bleeding except when his asleep.what should I do to make it stop?
There are not a ton of baby friendly alternatives. First off, I would give it a few weeks to heal itself. The tongue is a very craft organ and usually heals itself quickly. If it's reopening, he's probably chewing on his tongue.
If that doesn't work, I would try dabbing just a touch of yarrow on his tongue to help stop the bleeding. Or you could add a bit of salt to his tongue, which will sting. He won't like it, but it can help. Just be careful to do it in very small amounts.
My dentist recommended a damp tea bag to stop minor mouth bleeding--gums, tongue, and/or cheek. Not sure if this will work in your baby's case, but it's worth a try. I'd suggest taking your baby to the doctor if it has been going on for more than 3 days, however. They have "bandaids" that stick to the mouth tissue and hold it together; not sure if that's prescription or not, however. I'd ask your pediatrician if it were me, though.
