Okay my little bean is teething bad. Is it normal to have a runny nose and be stuffed up while teething? Any other tips for surviving teething? She seems to only be fussy at night time when my husband and I get to see her! Anything to make her feel better I'll try lol....

  • Yes it's normal, my daughter is 18 months and still needs 4 teeth left to come in. She is I think more so at night also uncomfortable. Try baby orajel, and daytime maybe something to chew on that is cold.

  • It is normal to have a runny or stuffy nose along with diarrhea and a low grade temp when teething. I use "Humphreys" teething tablets for my little one. They really help, espescially at night when she gets fussy.

  • My some is teething and when it gets bad I will give him tylenol or motrin and the dossaged recomended by his doctor he chews on everthing. Cold things work but I usually let him chew on his cup. I never used orajel because I read something stating that by numbing the gums it doesn't let the baby feel the pain in order to bring the teeth in. I am not against the idea though it just said it could prolong teething and I didn't want that.
