  • My son did the same thing at 3 months old.. i think thats when he started teething. He also wasnt running a fever, but at 5 1/2 months old 2 teeth popped through..
    I could tell cus when he fought sleep every once in awhile he would cry that HURT cry.. You know what i mean? When they tuck their lip under and kind of wail..
    I kind of had to trick him to sleep.. like sit him on my lap in the rocking chair, but facing outward (¬ tryin to cradle him) to where he didnt think i was tryin hard to put him to sleep.. and eventually hed konk out lol.
