Is this Teething....

I need some help!!! My daughter has been running a temp anywhere from 99.9 to 100.7 for the past few weeks. I had her to the Dr and they told me she had a cold and her gums looked alittle white well that was a few weeks ago. Her gums aren't real swollen or anything but she is MISERABLE!!! Doesn't really want her bottle or to eat nothing makes her happy. My mom says this could be the early signs of teething and that is whats making her miserable. Oh by the way she is 8 months old. Thanks for your help!!!!

  • Wow lucky you hehe my son starting teething at THREE MONTHS! But anyways...if this has been going on for a long time, there may be something else bothering her. Is she drooling a lot? Chewing on her hands/toys/your hands etc? Are her cheeks flushed? Does she cry more at night? These are all signs of teething if not, I would try changing her formula maybe? It might be her belly, or have the ped. check her ears too! Good luck!

  • She is on Gentlease and medicine for Acid Reflux... I had them check her ears awhile ago because she has had so many ear infections but they said her ears looked great. She doesn't want to sleep nothing. Then I wonder if part of it could be the time change. She used to take awesome naps and now she doesn't feel like she needs naps anymore. She drools some but is always chewing on something her hands, toys stuff like that.
