I have heard that when babies are teething sometimes they can get sour stomachs. What is this? What are the symptoms, and the treatment? Is their anything that I can do to help prevent my son from getting this?

Thanks for the advice. I am thinking that the symptoms that I have seen in Kayne are just like you've both described as being just a part of teething. You never think when you are pregnant about the all these things and now it seems I learn something new everyday as he grows.Motherhood really is an amazing learning experience, Thanks again moms

Never heard the term 'sour stomach'. My little girl is teething at the moment, as Sinead pointed out her appetite has changed, very fussy and will only eat certain things, her mood can change in an instant! She's still sleeping ok thankfully! Her poo is definately smellier, wetter and more frequent at the moment, I assume this is what the term means. Unfortunately there's nothing that you can do, apart from being very patient, and giving lots of cuddles! Having an infant suspension like Calpol is a must (infant paracetamol) If she's really suffering I give her a dose, have a cuddle and pop her in bed. Sorry there's no preventative! hope this helps x

I've not heard the term "sour stomachs", but I do know that teething can alter a baby's appetite, mood, sleeping pattern, you name it... and their poo can become stinkier, wetter, drier, a strange colour etc. I'm assuming that's what is meant by the term. It happens. As far as I know there's not much you can do about it other than changing promptly as soon as they've dirtied the nappy (as nappy rash can become more common or aggressive while teething), and be extra patient and loving while they suffer.
