my 15 month old keeps getting a temperature on and off, has diarrhea when he drinks his milk and is extremely irritable at night. Dr. says its a virus but could he be teething? I feel so helpless when he is crying and i am not sure why.

  • Could it be that he is allergic to milk? Have you tried soy based formula? I would keep a diary of what he eats and when and then any symptoms so you could find a pattern.

  • Whole milk is a little heavier then the formula there may be something with the whole milk but when my DD was teething she did have flu like symptoms so i would just keep a close eye on the child and see if it maybe teething. Some child have it rough when there teething and some you wouldn't even know they were cutting teeth. I hope that is just teething.

  • he could be just getting use to the fact from changing from formula to whole milk and he could be teething cuz my son always starts crying for no reason especially at night
