8 Month Old Baby Teething Symptoms
Parent must do it.: Good oral care starts day one. For infants, wiping all oral surfaces with a washcloth and water twice daily after feedings does the job. For toddlers, get a very soft small toothbrush and brush all oral surfaces gently. You don't have to use toothpaste, but if you want to use it, put only a tiny dot on the brush;we don't want him eating toothpaste! ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Is it safe to give an 8 month old baby Infant Tylenol (acetaminophen) every day during teething to help with teething pain & discomfort? Baby's weight is 18 lbs.
Real constipation?: First, decide whether a baby has constipation or has normal stools that come out only every few days. A baby has constipation if he has to push hard to get his poop out, even if the poop itself isn't hard. If poop really is firm, then the baby is constipated even if he doesn't need to push to get the poop out. A glycerin suppository is one of the first treatments for a constipated older infant. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
8 month baby - running nose, no temp, full dirty nappies, cough and teething? Is it all connected to her teething?
Might not: It looks like your child might have a viral upper respiratory infection presenting with congestion, runny nose, then loose stool or even diarrhea. Make sure he or she gets plenty of fluid or water and give him/her baby tylenol (acetaminophen) or advil if fevers develop. Symptoms might last for a week or so.

The best rx is washing out the nose with saline & suctioning the remainder. Eliminate irritants from baby's environment & this will happen less.No cough syrup!!! ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
My 8 month old has rectal temp of 100.4 since two days, fussy, vomits on force eating, teething, no other symptom?
Fever advice: These symptoms with fever can be due to many causes, mostly harmless viral infections which resolve, but there are more serious bacterial infections (e.g. ear, chest, urine, meningitis are some) which may need assessment by your doctor. See http://www.kidshealth.org.nz/fever for comprehensive advice. Teething is not always the cause of a fever. Fluids are more important than food for a sick child. ...Read more
