Teething.... why does it affect....

their poop? I'm so over this. Our son has been cutting his 1 year molars for what seems to be months. I've tried changing his diet.... but we're still getting these terrible you know? Any thoughts? Is this normal? Does anything help? I'm using liners now for every diaper. Washing every day....

Re: Teething.... why does it affect....

I have heard that having to swallow all that extra saliva contibutes to the runny poop, bu that may be an old wives tale. I am not sure anyone can give a definite reason, as some babies don't seem to terribly affected by it. None of my kiddos have had an issue with runny poo associated with teething. Just remember, this too shall pass, and you will be on to something else that makes ya wonder!!

If you have access to homeopathic remedies, calcarea carbonica 30c, once a day helps teeth come in. Won't help the poo, but it seems to speed up the cutting process.

I had never heard of this before... baby girls first teeth, the bottom two, just cut thru the gums yesterday! I havent noticed a difference in poo though... but she definately is not swallowing the extra saliva....

Thank you for the idea. He isn't eating much either so I'd love to speed this along. I've never heard of it. I'll do a search.

thanks again,

Re: Teething.... why does it affect....

DS has the same poo problems. I read about it in "The Baby Book" by Dr. Sears. It does exist! I hope your DS gets those teeth thru soon!!

Thank you, sorry your son has it too. For some reason the molars have just taken forever and now he's cutting eye teeth too. Poor little guy!

Let's hope we both get through it quickly!
