3 mos baby teething signs 3 white bumps like milia in same area on top gum & unconsolable, tooth?
Call or page the Dr.: A 3 month-old baby who is "unconsolable" is fussy for a reason. If the baby had cold symptoms or has fever, an infection is likely.

If just "fussier than usual", parents can check the baby with no clothes on, give tylenol, (acetaminophen) give a warm bath, give a feeding, and if still fussy, go to urgent care. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
