Kadey is 5 months old and teething, i think...she has the whole drool rash on her chin and is gnawing on anything she can get in her mouth and has become increasingly cranky as the days go on, and this morning she felt hot so I checked her temp and it was 100.4. I called the doctor and they told me to give her Motrin and check again in an hour because it was most likely teething. Her temp went down with the Motrin but she is still very fussy. Could she be getting sick or is this teething? Her gums dont appear to be red or irritated and when I press on them she doesnt act like it hurts her. Help!
