  • he is at an age where he could be getting ready to get a tooth. If you stick your finger in his mouth. does he want to 'chew' on it? if so he has a tooth coming in. You can also expect low-high grade fevers , being cranky and not sleeping well....

  • Symptoms are usually drooling, trouble sleeping, low fever, diaper rash, crankiness and chompiness (likes to chew on stuff). If you feel his gums, you can usually feel a bump under the surface where a tooth is about to break through.

  • some babies get night terrors when teething. i think that is happening my my dd, along with those other crappy symptoms.
