Could she be teething?

My DD is 6 months old now. Did your LO have fever(mild), congestion, lack of apetite during teething? The doctor chalked it down to teething. My main concern is that she has a significant amount of phlegm. He did listen to her lungs and said they're fine but I just read that teething isn't accompanied by any symptoms other than cutting teeth and biting. Did your baby get sick while teething. If so, what did you use to alleviate his/her symptoms?

  • I would probably trust the pediatrician. Our son is pretty congested but when we went to the doctor last week, he said pretty much the same thing. He is also six months old, drools like crazy, and has a mild fever.
