Q.

Teething

My son is 15 months, and has recently cut his top two molars. I think he is busy cutting the bottom two, as he has all the normal teething signs. My question is, that he has been having runny poo nappies for about a week now. I have been giving him Probiotic powder twice a day in his milk, and applying Antepeol cream on his poor red/raw bum. He has never before had these kind of nappies for this long when teething. Is it normal to have runny tummies for this long with teething, or is this something else that I should have checked by a doc?

This is not due to teething but is more likely due to an infection, probably gastro. It would be best to take him to see his doctor.
