  • my daughter got like that when she was cutting her first tooth, she was right at 5 months, i did the same and gave her pedialyte but you can do a simple at home test to find out it she is not getting enough fluids. at her collar bone where there is that hollow spot just lightly pinch and pull up the skin (not to hurt just to raise the skin) when you let it go it should go right back in place with no wait at all if she is not getting enough fluids it will take a little bit (like a seccond or 2) or will be slow going back then you know she will need to see the dr.

    hope this will help
