6 mth old very frequent, green mucuousy BM for 6 days. No rash or fever. Alert and pleasant. PCP said it was teething. How so? How long will it last?

Loose link: There is no strong evidence that teething causes diarrhea or fever, contrary to popular belief. Green stools in an infant can be caused by infection, diet, or malabsorption. Babies with non-bloody diarrhea without vomiting, weight loss, fever or other signs of illness can be closely monitored for a few days, but beyond this should be evaluated for an underlying condition. ...Read more

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

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

Does teething come with a low grade fever?

Does teething come with a low grade fever?

Maybe, maybe not: I'm not convinced that teething itself causes fever although the kids can get worked up during the process. Teething occurs during the period when babies get 5-7 respiratory & 2-3 diarrhea viruses/yr & I'm not sure when one stops & another starts up, many are mild & teething gets blamed for the fever due to lack of obvious symptoms. ...Read more

My 3 mo old is teething is there anything I can do to make it less painful? And is it possible for her to not have a fever thru the process?

Cold teething rings: There are a collection of teething remedies available otc but I have never seen consistent benefit from any of them. There are water filled teething rings that can be chilled/frozen & offered to baby to gnaw on, rotating them out with another after one warms up. Cold will chill the nerve & reduce pain messages to the brain if present. ...Read more

How long should fevers from teething last?

? Teething Fever?: I'm not convinced kids have teething fever & if they do it would be low grade at most. Since teething can encompass the first 3 yrs & the are due for 5-7 respiratory & 3 diarrheal illness/yr at the same time there is bound to be some overlap. I would be concerned with persistent fever in a kid whose feeding & activity decline & want that kid seen. If playful & happy during the process, just monitor. ...Read more

Can teething cause on and off fevers in a 10 month old? And diaherra?

Can teething cause on and off fevers in a 10 month old? And diaherra?

Maybe: The average 10mo is both acquiring teeth & sticking his/her hands in their mouth covered with new germs from their surroundings. Whether this is teeth or low grade viral illness is hard to say. I expect about 3 diarrheal illnesses & 5-7 respiratory viruses/yr at this stage. Since we can't fix either I think we blame teeth a bit more than they really deserve. ...Read more
