  • Sounds like teething but it's flu season so look for more virus like behavior but personally I wouldn't worry.

  • I believe mommy know best honey and that your sweet little angel might be teething. But it is always better to just get him checked and see. Make sure you have some frozen nanners or some pop sicles handy he might need them for either one. They will both help with upset stomach if it is a virus and if not they will feel amazing on the teeth-to-be... good luck honey... pretty soon your little one will have an amazing smile :)
