  • 99.8% I'd say just let it be. It'll probably take care of itself in a few days. As for teething, teething rings never went over as well as the paw of a stuffed animal or the wadded up corner of a blanket. DS would scream if he saw a teething ring but hand him the hand of his sock monkey or let him chew on the ears of his giraffe and we had a happy baby again. Good luck momma. Teething sucks.

  • babies always run higher temps. 99.9 and below is not considered a fever.

  • It is so hard when the get teeth young because they can't hold something to chew on and help themselves at all! Wet a wash cloth with cold water, wrap it around your finger and put your knuckle into his mouth for him to chew on.

    I too say no Tylenol for such a low temp and young age.

  • I gave Tylenol at bedtime once in awhile for teething pain. It works.
