He's been running a fever of 102 and high and Tylenol doesn't work but so far Mortain does. Poor baby barley ate today and has been having really nasty diapers every hour and sometimes more. Of coarse I'm keeping him well hydrated. He loves drinking from bottle waters and gets mad if I don't share mine. (he's 1) I don't know if it's a bug he caught or because of his molar he just barley got him. Maybe it's a combo of both. He's up a lot at night burning up and just wants something to drink and a clean diaper then he cuddles with me till he falls asleep. Anyone else have this with their Los when they were getting their molars in? My daughter who is almost 3 never even fused or showed signs that she was getting molars in so this is new to me. He never been this fussy with teething before.

Babies need to be taken to the doctor when they are sick. Drinking a lot of water and having diarrhea can cause electolyte imbalances and that is even worse than dehydration. I've been hospitalized for it twice. Fever is a good thing when you have an infection. It's the body's defense system. If you give meds to lower the fever you aren't letting the body fight off whatever is going on. Babies livers don't work well and Tylenol and Motrin are hard on the liver. It's can be dangerous to blame illness on teething and not get it checked out because of irrational fears. Babies can get life threatening infections quickly like RSV, menningitiis, & pneumonia.
