I don't usually have a lot of garlic in my diet but while at the parent-in-laws, have had a bit. Can this cause my son to have diarrhea? Or, could it be teething? We have also let him suck but not eat any, carrot stick, piece of yellow pepper, piece of cucumber as he stares intently at us while we eat. He might also be teething? I am not sure if i feel bumps on his gums, but he is sure enjoying chewing and loves to chew on fingers. He was really upset today for about an hour, and he cried/screamed- is this what teething fussiness is like? He is NEVER like this. We administered some infant tylenol and it seemed to help, but he did cry intermittently. He is 4.5mos old and he is my first and my nerves are on fire. Thoughts are appreciated. :) thanks!

And yes, you are absolutely right...the drooling teething combo can cause diah, which in turn can cause an ugly diaper rash. Just air him out really well between changes. My daughter ran a low grade fever with teething, drool, runny nose (clear) diah, diaper rash, and sometimes a rash on her body. Every kid is different, but those were her symptoms.

Hi! Whats BFing? Sorry Im completely fresh to all of the acronyms on CoMs. :/
He has t beenallowed to consume any of those foods more acting like teething tools. His stool is still really loose but am thinking that is because he has a lot of drool/saliva that he is ingesting casuing looseness. He doesnt have a fever and is more himself and is still chewing on his hands and sophie toy.

First of all, you are feeding him whole items? Those things at his age are not the right first foods. It should be something bland like avacadoes or sweet potatoes and bananas. Also you should not introduce more than 1 new food on a single day but spread it out over 3-5 days and watch for reactions. Pureed food, not whole pieces of things. Especially NOT peppers.

Yes, he could be teething. I doubt it is simply just the garlic, by your post I can only guess that you are BFing. But could possibly be to many different foods introduced. But could certainly be teething. Just cause you don't see anything or feel anything does not mean he is not teething.,
