  • If he has 20 teeth already, then it's a concern but if he's not to 20 teeth yet, then it's normal.

    He's at the age to be working on molars. It could be his first molars or his 2 year molars. Either way, they are rotten teeth to get. Treat his symptoms as you've done before.

  • Yes, it sounds like the molars like the first post said. Those ones take a while to come in too, good luck with them. :D

  • By the way, if you didn't have troubles before and don't know what to do for him...
    (1) Teething hurts. Don't hesitate to give him pain meds if he seems miserable or to help him sleep at night.
    (2) Teething tablets help with the crankies and help him rest too. At it's worst, my daughter got two teething tablets and a dose of motrin at night. Teething tablets don't help with pain, they help with the emotional upset from the pain.
    (3) Otter pops are good. Messy but good. It lets him get something cold way back where the molars are.
    (4) Look for longer, skinnier teething toys. He's not working on those front teeth now. He's working on the ones way in the back and most teething toys are too big to get back there. Or they cause the kid to gag when he tries to shove them back that far. Even child's toothbrush might feel good to chew on.
