1 Bump


My DS is 6 1/2 months old. He has been drooling since he was 2 months old. He wants to bite everything. Lately he has been really fussy and tugging on his ears. He had a low grade fever last week, and today he has been really sleepy. He just wants to sleep all day it seems like. His lower gums are really swollen the left tooth looks like it could be coming in soon, but I am concerned because he has been super sleepy all day. Could the sleepiness be a side effect of teething?

  • If he's tugging on his ear it could be an ear infection

  • go get his ears checked. tugging on them is a classic sign of infection.
