My son is 4 1/2 months old, FF 8 oz bottles every 3 hours (his demand, not a schedule), has about 8-12 diapers a day and has a bowel movement anywhere between 1 & 4 days apart.
The past couple of days he's been eating less and less, has been fighting sleep tooth & nail, and when he does sleep he thrashes around most of the night. Last night he screamed on a 15 minute car ride (which he NEVER does usually). He's been very gassy, much fussier than normal and is eating only about 4 ounces. He is not running fever, but today he's had less soiled diapers (only about 4). He's been showing signs of teething but no swollen gums, just lots of drool (LOTS) & gumming everything he can find to put in his mouth.
Has anybody had any issues like this? Does this sound like teething or maybe sickness coming... first time mommy, so I have no comparisons! Thanks! P.S. I'll be calling his doc in the morning.
