My first son teethed with lightening speed, and really didnt have a hard time with it at all. So im in unfamiliar territory.<br><br>
DS2 still only has four teeth. He has all four molars and all four incisors coming in at a snails pace. Its got to be torture. Last night was AWFUL, but I am trying to figure out if it was from teething or should I look into something else being wrong.<br><br>
He thrashed and cried all.night.long. Its the worst night hes had in a very long time. We all slept in 15 minute incriments with a couple of 1 hour stretches in there. It hasnt been this bad since he was about four months old. However, the crying was more of an "Im pissed off I cant sleep" screech, and he had NO TEARS. (Hes definetly hydrated, so thats not the issue) Towrds the end of the day yesterday he had very red cheeks and they were on FIRE. It was warm out, and he was playing in the sun, but it was only like 69. Is the rosy, warm cheeks a symptom im unaware of teething? Now that I think about it, it makes sense. I also know that teething is worse at night when they are lying down trying to sleep. He kept wanting to drink, whining for Bah bah!!! BAh bah!!! I suppose I should have tried some oragel, but didnt think of it in my stupor.

Have you tried a little motrin at night? I think all kids have different teething symptoms. My friend's DS always gets a fever when he gets a tooth. EVERY time. Liam usually gets a runny nose, and sleeps HORRIBLE. The good news though, is that he just got his first 2 year molar this week, and besides a little extra fussiness, I didn't even notice he was getting the tooth!! I just looked back there Friday and it was there! That NEVER happened with any of his other teeth. So maybe once he is a little older he will have an easier time of it. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/hug.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="hug"> Hope those teefies come in quick for you, and for him!!

Well we tried Tylenol last night, and it did NOTHING. I have motrin at home, but the last time I tried to give it to him, he fought me big time. He may be more suseptible to it now. I will try tonight along with oragel.<br><br>
My biggest question I guess was the whole HOT RED CHEEKS bit. Has anyone ever noticed that as a symptom of teething before?

Tylenol never did anything for Liam either. Motrin works much better for him for teething, though it doesn't completely get rid of the pain for him. It sounds like he is probably in a lot of pain though, getting all those teeth at once! Orajel never helped Liam either.<br><br>
I have never heard of the red cheek thing, though..

Well I am starting to wonder if it was his milk allergy. My MIL made sauce and sausage last night, and the sausage got cooked IN the sauce. She used ragu, which has part skim milk and parm cheese in (Very small amounts) hes had it before, but not in months. And actually, he didnt have ANY of the sauce. We mande him straight up canned tomatoe sauce to put on the shells, but I did cut up a small peice of the sausage after wiping off the sauce it was in. Not thinking, DUH, it was cooked IN the sauce you MORON!<br><br>
I did a google search and found an old MDC posting from like 2004, that basically said the red hot cheeks is a food allergy, which got me processing the above. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/rolleyes.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="rolleyes">. Im such an idiot! And now that I think of it, he suddently had a nbunch more little dry patches on the one side of his face last night, but we were like, he didnt have any milk!!!<br><br>
OYE, I wont be making that mistake again, thats for sure!
