Your little baby is having a difficult time with her teething. If her stools are very watery she probably has a gastro infection. Give her frequent sips of Rehidrat solution. It would also help to give your baby a probiotic such a Reuterini infant drops, 5 drops daily for 10 days.

Worried mom - my son is the same age as your daughter ( he''s 7 April) and he has had the exacte same situtation - teeth coming out and running tummy - turns out he had a stomach bug that is going around. Two days after the tummy started - he threw up a bit and he would only drink water - nothing else. He is better now, but his nappies are still a little runny - not as much but still. Good luck

Shame, not nice that she has also got a runny tummy while going through teething.

The runny tummy is caused by a bug and is not related to the teething.

Just treat as you usually would - give her a probiotic like reuteri and ensure she remains hydrated - so if breastfeeding continue to breastfeed her, and however she is fed, give rehydrate solution.
