WWYD? Traveling with teething baby
My 7mo is cutting two teeth, woke up with congestion and some coughing. Her temp is rising but is only 99.1 right now. She's fussy but somewhat happy. We're supposed to go out of town to visit family this afternoon, a 5.5 hour drive. It's not imperative that I go. DH can take the big kids by himself.

So, would you go or stay home with the baby? She could do great, she could not. Ahhh, I don't know what to do!

yes, I would go.

Babies are always teething. Sometimes it's worse than others, but it's always present. Atleast for my child, but she teethed very fast.

Well, a fever, congestion, and coughing sound much more like a cold than teething. I would never change any plans because of teething, but like I said this doesn't sound like teething.

Thanks, y'all! We didn't end up going for other reasons. DH and his brother have a couple people affected by Isaac that they wanted to help out. I'm glad I didn't have to make the decision. I was more worried about her being uncomfortable on the long car ride than anything.
