My 7 week old started drooling is and his appetite has decrease is that normal?

My 7 week old started drooling is and his appetite has decrease is that normal?

May be normal: There will be normal ups and downs in appetite at this age. Make sure he is still eating regularly and acting satisfied. Drooling may be due to increased stimulation of his mouth with his hands. Make sure his nose is clear so he can breathe through it (or he will keep his mouth open to breathe and drool more)- use nasal saline and a bulb syringe to suction it out whenever needed. ...Read more

14 month old son has a fever and consistently drooling.  Molars may be coming in but the fever stay at 101 regardless of the medicine.  Is this normal?

Other symptoms?: Fever itself is never an evil "symptom." it is a sign of an infection that if fully vaccinated-may be a virus germ that will improve with"comfort" care and support. Numbers on a thermometer are not as important as associated symptoms/comfort and severity/duration. You may watch and wait for your toddler-offer meds if he tolerates/needs it. Follow up with your pediatrician if things worsen. ...Read more

Teething is the eruption of the primary (baby) teeth into the mouth and the teeth breaking through the gums can be painful and symptoms could include crying, irritability, excess saliva. Make sure you keep the saliva build-up minimized so they don't choke. ...Read more

Fever : You need to take him to his pediatrician. But at the mean time try to control the fever with tylenol (acetaminophen) or ibuprofen , lukewarm bath & keep him hydrated with small frequent sips of fluid, this could be a throat infection, viral illness or teething. His doctor will decide if he needs antibiotics or not, I hope he gets better soon. Good luck ...Read more

My 4 month old is fussier than normal and drooling more. I looked in her mouth and on her bottom gum there's a white spot tooth?

Congratulations: Sounds like your child is getting her first of 20 baby teeth. She will be fussy, drool a lot, and may even run a slight fever, till the tooth comes in. Give her something to chew on (teething ring). Chill it first in the refrigerator--soothing. Don't forget, 1st dental appointment age 1, preferably with a pediatric dental specialist (for the same reasons you see a pediatrician). ...Read more
