Advice for a cranky baby that's teething?  He has never been cranky. No fever. He is 6 months old and drools to the point where a bit of mouth rash

Teething. : Teething pain can make babies cranky, but it shouldn't be as bad as it sounds. 6 months usually means first teeth; I'm guessing. Drooling can also be a sign of sore throat, even without fever. If pain medicine isn't working; see your doctor. If the rash is on the skin around the mouth; try some ointment, to try to keep it waterproofed. If is on the lips or inside the mouth; it's not from teething. ...Read more

My year old daughter (who has just gotten teeth) is starting to bite when she doesn't get her way or becomes frustrated; me, other babies, toys, etc.?

My year old daughter (who has just gotten teeth)  is starting to bite when she doesn't get her way or becomes frustrated; me, other babies, toys, etc.?

Feedback: Keep telling her that biting isn't nice and offer her words to express her needs instead of biting. If you (and her other caregivers) are consistent, biting should quickly give way to more acceptable behavior. Also, if you ever "play bite" with her, stop now, as it makes her feel that biting is ok in some circumstances, when it really is not. Good luck! ...Read more

Is there a proven link between breastfeeding and improved lifelong dental health? Do formula-fed babies get weaker teeth/thinner enamel? Thanks!

Is there a proven link between breastfeeding and improved lifelong dental health? Do formula-fed babies get weaker teeth/thinner enamel? Thanks!

No direct link: Infants who fall asleep while either breast feeding and/or bottle feeding are both more prone to tooth decay as they don't swallow the last of thy milk or formula and it sits around their teeth all night causing decay. Bottles tend to be worse as the baby does not have to actively suck for liquid to keep dripping into their mouths. Either method used improperly will cause decay. ...Read more
