Has your little one ever experienced fevers when teething?

My dd has started teething since 8 months and has never seemed to be a problem until after she turned one. She now has 8 teeth in the front and a couple incisors coming in at the moment. She has good days and bad. When her gums are really irritating her she gets fevers and sleeps horribly at night. Just wondering if this always happened to your little one when they went through their teething phase.

  • Yep with each and every one. I just got used to giving her tylenol an hour before bed to help her sleep easier but during the day, no meds.

  • I would give Kenna motrin and alternate it with tylenol for fever. My daughter is 12 and when she looses a tooth, she still get's teething pain and fever when a new one comes in, strange child lol

  • Yes, my ds spiked a fever with every tooth as well. Infant ibuprofen became a staple in my medicine cabinet. If he was sweaty and really upset I would dampen a washcloth with cool water and wipe him down. On a rare occasion I would use a bit of rubbing alcohol on his back to help.
