To think it's odd that my mother didn't notice my son's injury?

Really odd, he would have probably had lots of bleeding from his him when it happened.

Depends. It depends a bit on the back story a bit I think x

If there wasn't any blood, then she might not have noticed. He could have swallowed the tooth too. Possible.

Steps away from the argument

Well it took you a bit of time to notice too, despite checking as you say in your op.

You didn't notice at first either....

My son, when he was about 1 knocked his tooth exactly as you describe. Diagnally on the front tooth. I only noticed when I was feeding him his dinner. To this day, I have no idea how or when he did it.

what are you on about saladcream? Are you perhaps commenting on the wrong thread?

You didn't notice at first, she was just trying to get him back to you, into your house where he would be safer once an initial look over when she picked him up. I often have done this on the way to school. Whether you trust your mother to look after your ds is another matter and the pool would worry me - is it even gated and locked? I wouldn't pass judgement based on this event alone. Dd2's teachers hadn't even noticed that she had been sitting in class with a 2cm cut on her cheek all afternoon - I'll still send her in on Mon cos I generally trust them but if this was symptomatic of wider neglect it might be a different matter.

There's nothing irrational about being hyper-aware and cautious with a newborn! As a one-off, which you suggest this isn't, I wouldn't be worried about this.

I've reported salad cream too, it was the talk of PMs and journalists that did it for me.
