  • It could be from anything. Have you asked his physician? I'd start there. It could be a virus, it could be teething, it could be an allergy.

  • Yes, I always thought my kids did the same when they were teething. Is there a weather change where you are? I mean, it could be allergies too.

  • The symptoms do sound like teething. I'm not sure that the weather in itself causes diarrhea and feeding changes. Do you have infant Tylenol you could give him for the teething pain? Or put a damp washrag in the freezer and then let him chew on it with his gums?

  • My daughter went through those symptoms exactly when she was teething. Particularly smelly diarrhea/loose stools, low-grade fever, and barely eating. If he's still urinating, I wouldn't worry too much. Frozen baby washcloths were very popular with my DD.
