I've been treating my LO as if she's teething for a couple of months now, there's no sign of teeth and I'm just suddenly worrying if there's something else wrong?
She chews EVERYTHING and when she has her bedtime bottle she often pauses and chews the teat at the back of her mouth (where the molars will be)
She often screams in pain and I give her teething powders/gel/calpol.
She doesn't feed for long at each feed and often comes off crying.
She's waking to feed a lot in the night, at one point she was sleeping through mostly.
She's quite snotty and has waxy ears.
Any ideas? I might take her to the docs anyway to get her checked. She's only ever been for her 8 week check!
my friends little girl is 11 months old, and was teething when my little boy was born, she has none still and ethan has 2, i think it just effects different babies in lots of different ways, but yes if you're worried drs is best, can't hurt
All sounds like a perfectly normal baby to me:-) I blamed everything on teething but 3 months later she still didn't have anymore teeth, it's so hard to tell. Babies just go though a million phases I think. It never hurts to get them checked out by the doc tho if you are concerned. Hope you get some answers:-)
