First, here are some signs that your baby is teething—drooling, wakefulness, cranky more than usual, crying, biting, chewing, and tender gums. Your baby may also be fussy when feeding. Over-drooling may cause skin irritation around the mouth. Teething gums may look swollen and red. You may see little white dots or small openings where the tooth cuts. Although your baby may get loose stools while teething, look out for diarrhea and fever. Fever and diarrhea are not symptoms of teething; therefore, you should take your baby to the doctor for a check-up since it is probably unrelated to your baby’s teething.
