more teething questions

Is a runny nose (clear not green) a symtom of teething? I looked it up online and it said yes but the baby orajel bottle says no. my dd also has a bad cough, is that just teething or no.

  • Just a runny nose can be a sign... but if he also has a bad cough I would say more likey a cold

  • Teething can cause many things in a baby... Runny nose being one of them. Neither of my children had a cough that accompanied teething, but there is really no medication that can be given if your child is only months old. Run a humidifier in the baby's room. thats what the Dr usually says, and it seems to work pretty good for my daughter... Good Luck

  • Mine got a runny nose when she cut her first two teeth. I think it's a symptom of teething. If the cough is bad and last for more than a day or two, I would check with babies doctor.

  • Sometimes when they are teething and have a lot of drool it can drain in their throat and give them a cough along with that, I guess it would be safe to ask her pedi.
