I have a 8 month old baby girl who in the last 15 hrs has developed a fever ranging from 37.9-38.4 and am seeking advice from other parents as to if this can be associated to teething.
My DD still has no teeth and has had teething symptoms on and off for the last 3 months, she went from sleeping through the night 10+ hours to waking up really unsettled every 2-3 hours.
During the last week she has started chewing on her gums more and sucking everything in site, being unsettled but hasn't had excessive drooling or redness in the cheeks. She has also had Diahorrea and more vomiting then usual ( she has reflux ) so has always been a spewy baby.
My question to everyone is can this fever mean her teeth are finally going to make an appearance or should I be worried it is something more serious, she doesn't have any flu like symptoms and is still having wet nappies but isn't too keen on her solid foods and her will only drink about 100ml of her bottle every 4 hours. Am just a very worried mum if it isn't teeth, should I take her to hospital as a precaution?
Any advice on the matter would be great, thanks
