Q.

Teething

Hi, my baby is 5 months old. The last week she has been terribly fussy and just wants me the whole time. She does not want her daddy or even want to lie down so that I can change her nappy. She dribbles quite a lot and her fists are in her mouth the whole time. Her tummy is also quite loose and it sounds as if her chest is slightly wet. Could this indicate that she may be teething?
