My 16 month old son has just been working on getting his 1 yr. molers. He screams randomly throughout the day, has diahrea about 3 times daily, bangs his mouth on furniture, drools like crazy to the point where I have to take a washcloth everywhere he goes to wipe off puddles of saliva, and loses his appetite for food and will not eat a single thing at meal times about every other day. He likes to chomp on cold baby carrots, freezies, ice cold cloths, and whatever else he can chew to help hiis gums feel better, but it doesn't seem to help very much. I thought the crazy teething symptoms would go away after the front 8 teeth were out! What can I do so we can stay sane with the pain I can tell he's feeling? I don't believe that medicating constantly is good either and the homopathic teething tablets do nothing. AAAHHHH! My poor Baby!
