True the nappies are usually a bit runnier with teething, but then you've just started weaning, Ange so it may not be affecting him in the usual teething way. I think it sound slike teeth too. Calpol is great - double check with pharmacist, but you can give doses of infant paracetamol and ibruprofen to helkp relieve pain - eg give him calpol at 6 and then the ibruprofen at 8...crikey, please check it! Someone else recommended anbesol liquid - apparently it stays on the gums better than bonjela. sam liked to chew on a chilled facecloth when he was teething. And i peeled a big fat carrot from the fridge for him to gnaw on. Teething sucks. poor lil Freddie.
