Could it be teething?

My 11 month old has a fever, mild cough, and runny nose. Is it from teething? If it is what else can i do to help her besides giving her infants tylenol?

I have a doctors appointment for her next week i just need some advice until then...

  • mine is doint the same thing. i think its her allergies (lots of budding flowers and trees right now) and teething at the same time. the clear watery runny nose can be from teething... usually not cough. they always get hit with everything dont they? i use the nasal saline for her nose, but nothing for her cough if it is mild.

  • I've seen fever and runny nose with teething, but not cough. If mine had a fever, I would give baby tylenol. If she isn't better tomorrow, move your MD appointment up. It's the season for allergies and summer colds.
