runny nose with teething ?

Not uncommon

Baby
This is not uncommon as a symptom of teething, but it is also possible to have both a little cold and teething happing at same time. Cold teething ring can help. If symptoms persist or worsen, I would check in with your family physician or pediatrician. Make sure to get seen for all Well Baby checks and vaccinate as recommended.

What is teething all about?

Teething pain

Teeth
As teeth erupt into the mouth they push on the gums causing discomfort, the natural reaction is to bite on something as pressure on the gums over the tooth relieves the pain for the moment. thats why babies when they start to have teeth erupt are chewing on anything they can get in their mouths. This also helps the tooth cut thru the gum tissue. over the counter topical anesthetics like Oralgel

can a 3mth old be teething?

It's possible!

Baby
Although most babies start chewing and drooling at around this age and don't start cutting teeth for several more months it's possible for teeth to start coming in now. In fact,sometimes a baby can be born with one or more teeth! Thankfully,that's rare. If you look at your baby's mouth and you see one area of gum that's red and swollen,and you feel something quite sharp underneath, it's a tooth!

Does teething cause diarrhea?

Maybe

Teeth
Scientific research says it does not, but I have seen babies who repeatedly have loose bowel movements when teething. Can not prove the realrionship however, so it remains confusing.

when do babies begin teething?

4-9 months

Baby
Babies usually start drooling and putting fingers in mouth by 4 months. Sometimes they can show all symptoms of teething a good 2 months before you see the tooth pop through. It is OK if you see no tooth even at 9 months as long as the baby is growing fine and is not completely bald.

Dr. Willa M. Terry answered:

when do babies start teething?

Teething

Baby
Most babies get their first tooth around six months and then a new tooth about every month or so - a typical 1 year old may have six teeth. However some babies are born with teeth (natal teeth) and some babies don’t get their first tooth until they are 1, there is a wide range for normal development. Kids may lose their first tooth around age 5, barring trauma.
