Q.

14 Month Old

Good Day Doctor, my baby boy is 14 months old. He seems to be cutting his teeth all at once. He is ok during the day, battles to nap, but other than that not to bad. He wakes crying at night quite often, he re-settles but it is almost all night, I dont have to get uo for him really. The only time he does sleep without crying is when I give him postal. Is it caused by teething if this helps?

It does sound as if your son's waking at night is due to him getting so many teeth at the same time. On the whole he seems to be very good with it and you are managing well. He will benefit from using a teething gel on his gums at night, such as Pansoral gel.
