The last couple weeks my 23 month old son has been sticking a finger in his mouth gnawing on it. Last night he had no interest in dinner and got very fussy and hot pretty suddenly. Checked his temp, 101.4. Not necessarily a big deal but for about an hour he was really irritable. Gave him lukewarm bath, a dose of Motrin, then headed for the store to get some Pedialyte. When I returned he was running around, playing like normal. In the past 24 hrs, his temp has been back and forth. I am wondering if this could be bc of a new molar coming in? I read last night that fevers over 100.4 shouldn't be attributed to teething. He's been a bit fussy here and there, but no more bouts of lethargy like the initial one that led me to worry. I know the fever is good bc his body is fighting an infection, so I've only given Motrin to make him more comfortable before bedtime.Answer Question
