so ds has started drooling up a storm, mouthing his whole hand (and sometimes gagging on it, lol), and having more frequent, runnier poops. he has also been really unhappy for up to an hour or two at a time, with high pitched screaming and crying until his whole body is just shaking and his breathing gets all erratic (he tends to be a bit of a fussy guy at times, but this is different - more insistent, louder, higher pitched). at these times, nothing works - not the breast, not the wrap with a walk or a bounce, not singing, not holding and rocking. we're trying some homeopathic teething remedies, and I think they help, but I'm looking for advice or suggestions. I don't remember teething being so painful at such an early age for my other lo's (but maybe I've just blocked it out!) could it be something else that I'm missing? he's got no temp, and throughout the day is full of smiles and giggles. we are working on some suspected food sensitivities, I have cut out dairy and so soy far. is anyone else dealing with teething yet? or have some great magic mama teething tricks?
