  • they can get a fever and whine a lot. they can throw up more and possibly have the runs. look at his gums. are they solid and red? give him some tylenol and let him suck on acold rag or a teething ring

  • you can also take liquid benedril and put on his gums use your finger and rub it on his gums thats what my doctor suggested for my son also and use tylenol and use frozen popcicles with your supervision and that also helped my son.

  • As the first person said, he's probably going to run a small fever, which will make him turn red. Giving him some infants Tylenol will help him get rid of it. We give our son infants Oragel twice a day, and we also put our son's bottle nipples, pacifiers, and teething rings in the fridge. We wet the tip of a rag, and freeze it for him to suck on, too. Best of luck to you!
