protruding tongue - it's just teething, right?

10-month-old DD has been teething like crazy over the past few days, but has suddenly started poking her tongue right out (it is very long!). She's doing it pretty constantly, but doesn't seem in discomfort (apart from usual grumpiness because of sore gums from time to time).

Anyone else had this?

I think I'm worried because it started so suddenly - I left her playing in the front room early this afternoon to pop to the loo and when I got back she was doing it. I was worried she had something in her mouth, but couldn't find anything.

Is this just teething, do you think? I'm sure I'm being a paranoid first time mum here. ...

Shouldn't worry -my dd did this at a similar age and it lasted for a couple of months, but then she grew out of it!

DD did a lot of odd tongue poking and jaw sticking out things when teething (from about 6 months). Also now she is 10 months she has taken to sticking her tongue out like she has something in her mouth. I wouldn't worry smile

Cheers pinkspottywellies (great name, by the way).

Teething really sucks, doesn't it?
