  • Could be. Some babies get diarrhea when they are teething fromall of the saliva.

  • Definitely sounds like it could be teething. Is she still drinking her breast milk or formula? As long as she is I wouldn't worry unless it carries on for a few days or she gets a high fever or develops other symptoms. Otherwise just give her lots of TLC and keep an eye on things. Something hard to chew on, or something cold, can help her little gums, or a bit of Infant Tylenol at night to help her sleep more comfortably. My DD loved to chew on a beg metal key chain I had, or a cold washcloth, or even my finger which I didn't mind in the old days before she really had any teeth. I hope your LO feels better soon!
