Jaycen always had a really hard time teething. Runny nose, coughing, loss of appetite, throwing up, low grade fever, and terrible diaper rash. Happened every time he got a tooth. My first also had the runny nose when teething.

My daughter got cold-like symptoms not long after she started teething. We asked her pediatrician about it and she said teething causing cold-like symptoms is an old wives tale. I'm not so sure tho cuz almost everyone I talked to said their kid did the same thing. Tho ur kid may not be sick, I would say it's not uncommon for them to get sniffly or cough while teething. Remember they're producing more saliva and it's probably comparable to taking too big of a drink of water: you get more than you thought you were going to and you get choked up and start coughing, also as with crying or tearing you get a runny nose, so I have no doubt that they're related in some way. I don't know what to tell you to do about it, tho. My daughter liked drinking really, really cold juice or water since it cooled her whole mouth off and helped with the swelling that comes with teething. It also gave her something to do with the extra drool: either swallow it or drool it out the corners of her mouth while drinking. Gross, I know, but the best option til they figure out the spitting thing, then we'll have a whole new problem to deal with. :D

When my son was teething he got very congested, runny nose, and a cough. He used to sleep in his swing A LOT as a baby. He cut 16 teeth by the time he was 1yr old.

Yes...I think my Widdle Man could have the coughs & runny nose..because of teething..and lack of sleep..as he sleeps/naps at home 2 times a day but won't at homecare... he sleeps 2 hrs in the morn'n and 2 hrs in the afternoon...and still sleeps a full 12 hrs at nite at home.... sleeps makes a big difference to their health..so this weekend he's stay in & at home..nap'n :) :)

My son always gets a runny nose, sometimes a bit of a fever and he use to get diaper rash pretty bad when he was cutting teeth. i know the diaper rash thing sounds silly, but a doctor told me that was a symptom. There is nothing wrong with giving your child ibprofen or tylenol or orajel. So long as youre not doing it constantly. Just when they seem to be in lots of pain and dont give it to them for more than a few days straight. To me, if you let your child suffer and be in pain, that isnt right. Especially if there is something that will help them.

Cute dresses Tracey! And super cheap too! I would buy a couple, but I am in a purging phase, preparing for a move. :(

I'll pass on the link though.

when my son was teething he got a low fever right before his teeth broke through with EVERY SINGLE TOOTH so I wouldn't doubt it that the cold symptoms come with teething for your child.

I make homemade toddler dresses. I love it and it gives me something to do while baby is taking a nap. . Please check it out. www.etsy.com. click on buy, then go to search, at the top right corner. Instead of homemade,key in seller. Then on search box, type in tswearns and hit search. It will pull up my shop. I hope you like the dresses. I put love into every single one. Thanks.

My daughter liked chewing on her stuffie. She has a monkey that we got her before she was born. He used to have a curly tail but she chewed on it so much the elastic inside his tail broke, and she chewed a hole in the end! It was the only thing she'd chew on other than my fingers. If he has something like that, it might help. My daughter still won't go anywhere wothout that monkey, even to the store. He's like her best friend and security blanket, and she still chews on his tail.

That's funny, it's seems like it is always something. I would just love some peace and quiet. I have tried baby orajel and tylenol. But I hate giving him drugs. Maybe I will just get me some ear plugs. Hopefully he will feel better in a couple of days.
