Teething-related symptoms

A lot of doctors believe that teething has no other symptoms. What did you experience? Fever, runny tummy, nappy rash?

  • I found dd got runny noses but not sure if that related, it just showed up often when she was getting teeth. the red cheeks and drooling are the big ones as well as wanting to bite on everything in her grasp and also just grumpy from the pain in the mouth.. thats about it

  • I experienced and I know alot of other moms to experience a lot of drooling, biting, runny nose, slight fever, upset tummy (because little one doesn't want to eat much cause of gums hurting).
    Hope this helps.

  • Drooling, Biting, Diarrea ( which lead to diaper rash)

  • Drooling, biting, EVERYTHING goes in the mouth, runny nose. One of my children even had bad diarrhea whenever he was teething (I'm guessing because of the excess saliva).

  • He drools, biting, rosy cheeks, putting fingers in his mouth and slight fever.
    Good luck!

  • My baby had a runny nose, thats it. No rash, fever, slobber.... we would just look in her mouth and see new teeth.

  • interupted sleep and crankiness! I do believe that teething has symptoms, but I know a lot of doctors do not buy it for some reason

  • runny nose and diariea but mild... really the only way i knew he was teething was when i'd look at his gums and see swelling but he would get 2 to 3 teeth at a time and had them all before he was 1... but never really showed pain.
