Default Teething

Hi Everyone,

I believe my son is really in the teething stage. My mom just called and said he has been fussy ever since I dropped him off this morning, has a fever and not eating. He was fine last night and this morning, but in the middle of his sleep he started coughing like he swollowed too much saliva and he started grabbing his ears very hard this morning. I know last week he had diarrhea. Has any of your children had any of these symptoms while teething or should I take him to the doctor?

J had all those symptoms except for the coughing. He also gets diaper rashs when he is teething. If he keeps pulling at his ears I would take him to the doc just to make sure it isn't an ear infection. It is so hard to tell with J cuz he has always pulled on his ears. I would usually give him children's tylenol and a cold washcloth to gnaw on.

While all those symptoms could be caused by teething, I think I would take him to the Dr just to be sure...though I probably wouldn't rush if he had an appt. comming up in the next week or so anyway, unless he got worse.

We went to the doctor Monday and it end up being an ear infection. I am exhausted. He is miserable. He does not sleep during the night unless he is laying on me, his fever is still going up and down. I feel so bad for my baby.

Does he normally sleep with you or in a crib?

If you elevate his head while he's sleeping, he'll be more comfortable because it will alleviate all the pressure in his head and ears. Stick a pillow UNDERNEATH the crib mattress at one end to put it at an incline and then obviously put his head at the elevated end. That will help.
