    Hello

    My LO will be 12 weeks old on Thursday and is exclusively breastfed. For the last week or so he has been really drooling and putting his first in his mouth a lot. He has white patches on his lower gums where his incisors will be.

    For the last 3 days he has been really grouchy, he wants to be held a lot, and when i try to put him down (say on his change mat, or in his chair or swing) he cries. His dummy or singing to him usually stops him crying after a few seconds and then his attention can be held by toys/songs for a short while before him crying again. This continues all day...

    For the last 24 hours he has pooed LOADS and trumped LOADS - smellier than normal and liquid and mid brown but without the usual seedy mustard texture - more like gravy.

    He doesn't have a temp. Does this sound like teething? what could be causing all the poo?

    thanks in advance for any ideas or experience!
