I have never read anything about teething relating to the blood brain barrier. So I don't really have an opinion on this

This isn't alarming, IF the child is healthy and doing well, and IF the stools aren't too foul or runny. Soft serve ice cream sounds ok.

I view topical fluoride as controversial as well. I don't think the research gives us a clear answer. In light on that, I usually tell patients NOT to do it, since we don't know it's safe.

I don't think the pertussis vaccine is important enough for an older healthy child with mild asthma to overcome your general preference not to vaccinate.  Same for tetanus

I would not get the DTaP anymore, ever. REactions can worsen. I would say there is no safe age for your child, given the reaction. I would not bother with DT either, since we don't have D in the...
