canker sores?

can babies get canker sores? I got a look in Lucas' mouth today and noticed a big sore on the inside of his cheek. I have never had one before so i don't know anything about them or how to get rid of them.

I dont see why not. I get them from acidic foods like pineapple. They are a little tender, and just go away on their own in a couple of days. Keep a lookout for more though. When Simon had a horrible throat infection they looked like canker sores all over his mouth and throat. Hopefully it's just a canker sore like you said though.

Doesn't surprise me, but I haven't thought about it before! If it's just the one just leave it be. It'll go away. Like Mona said if there's more something more is definitely up.
