My oldest didn't cut a single tooth until 7 months old. My youngest cut two in a week at 3 months old. He then waited until almost 9 months old to cut three more in less than two weeks time. All babies are different. Your child could be teething. Also growth spurts can cause fussiness- warm baths and hugs help that :) You may also want to consider that the weather would impact health. I rarely leave the house in this cold but there are germs all over- even in our homes. Excessive drooling can cause fluid to pool behind the ear drums and cause infection without being "exposed" to any outside elements. It's best if your child seems sick and your gut tells you to be concerned to listen to your instincts.
