OK- I think my ds might be getting sick, but it is hard to tell. He has been a little cranky/clingy but he also just got his first tooth. He has a very sporatic cough durring, but he usually coughs a bit when he wakes up in the morning ( maybe allergies ). He has a low grade fever of 99.8. I called the doctor, and they didn't seem too concerned, but the thing is that we are supposed to be leaving on a 4 hour car trip for the weekend in a few hours and I am debating on if we should go or not...HELP!

BTW- he is almost 7 months. And his cough has been durring the day (typo from above).

It sounds like you are descibing my ds when he was teething. He got his 1st bottom tooth then 2 days later his 2nd. He had the cough and a running nose with low grade fever until both teeth broke thru. I used Tylenol and he was fine. How long has he had the fever? To me it sounds like its from the tooth but that was just the case for my ds. Will you be around hospitals on your vaca?

Hi LisaB do they sneeze a lot too. My ds does cought sometimes but i thought may be he swallowed his saliva, and he has running nose. He likes to eat whatever he finds including his and my clothes and has been very fussy lately( 2-3 days). Does this mean he is teething and ya he has been sneezing a lot so I was thinking he has cold. thanks

Hey KRC- my ds always sneezes also. LisaB- I checked his temp yesterday and it was 99.3...the only reason I even checked it was cuz I was afraid he was getting sick. Thanks for your advice!

I'm not sure about the sneezing. I call my ds sneezy cuz he always sneezes. The ped said he doesn't have allergies (um ok) but who knows. JEN if it were me I'd go and I'm a total first time mom freak about everything just keep a close eye on him. Happy teething.
