    Hey girls... Eli is almost 9 months and he has 3 bottom teeth coming through. He was really grotty this morning,just crying like something was hurting. He had no temp with very rosy cheeks and dribbling everywhere. He had a nap eventually and has woken up now with a temp of 38.8. Do you think it could be teething?:shrug:

    Yes, sounds like it. Strip him off to try cool him down, maybe dab him with a cool flannel, try a dose of calpol to bring his temperature down. How does he seem in himself? If his temperature goes above 39 you need to seek medical advice. Keep a close eye on him x

    Thanks. He is grotty and moaning. I can tell something is uncomfortable. He just had some mashed fruit,but didnt eat much. He starts drinking and then will stop and cry. He wont have his dummy at times either,which is why i thought maybe its his teeth. Ive just given him some meds so will keep an eye.:flower:

    Sounds like teething to me, I give my DS calpol and it brings his temp down.
    And congrats on the pregnancy, I remember you from the trimesters.x

But he is still very grotty and wont let me touch his gums at all,so cant see whats going on in there!:dohh: Im sure its going to be another long night with very little sleep for me or Eli.:wacko:
