  • what you just said. lol. as for the white spots, make sure that isn't thrush...

  • My son was born with two little white spots on his bottom gums and sure enough that's right where his teeth popped through! Your baby has all the teething symptoms. I had to keep a bib on my son all day and change it like every 2 hours because he drooled so much. Another symptom is a runny nose even though he's not sick!

  • if your breastfeeding, check for thrust! my son was doing the same thing and we had thrust, it hurts him a lot. could cause the other symptoms.
