Could a runny nose be a sign of teething? My daughter is definitely teething, but she has had this runny nose for a couple weeks now. Is this normal? Or does she have a cold? No other symptoms other then a runny nose.

  • Yes, a lot of babies get a runny nose as just part of teething.

  • my baby is 5months and she has a running nose, I think it's allergies, but i know she's teething also, her doctor said that i won't see any teeth for awhile, they are just pushing on the gums right now, but she is drooling
