I have an almost 3yr old son and he has 6 molars coming in at the same time! He is in horrible pain :( he won't eat anything but applesauce, yogurt, Popsicles and rice and broth, and I can't say I don't blame him, he's drinking lots of fluids though, but to look at the inside of his mouth just makes me sad! His gums are red and very irratated and they bleed some when I brush them, which is another thing, he won't let me come near him with a toothbrush (again, I can't blame him) but I can't not brush his teeth, he also has a low grade fever! I took him to the doctor thursday for his fever and she checked him out and chucked it up to a virus, I'm calling his doctor first thing in the morning again and in the meantime I'm giving him Tylenol during the day, ibuprofen at night with Baby Oragel, and lots of loving! But my questions are, has anyone else's child endured similar symptoms with molar teething and do you have any tips on how to comfort more than I already am?Answer Question
this was recently asked. links are included- GL :)
