I think my seven month old daughter might be teething... She is running a temp of 100.4 and she is sooo fussy. Doesn't want to sleep really doesn't want the bottle and just wants to chew on her pacifier. She has been drooling a lot over the past few weeks and her bottom gums in the front look alittle white and puffy. Are these signs of teething?

  • sounds like teething. and its the right age. i agree with thompson21. try some oralgel, that should help. dont worry about your daughter not eating good right now... as soon as she is hungry she will eat again ;)

  • Yes sounds like it. For the fever i used tylenol. But Teething tablets Are the most wonderful things ever!!!.They have all natural ingredients, and they help to calm your baby down. They worked wonders for me, esp cause i dont like to use alot of tylenol.

  • It sounds like she is. Try getting some teething rings and putting them in the freezer. That may help.
