My ds is 17 weeks. I think he is teething as he has a runny nose, drooling with cough. Its the cough I find a worry but gp has told me its from excessive saliva. He is breeding ok and is bright and alert. Will this fussiness last for long ..any advice

my DD pushed up 2 teeth at 20 weeks, no cough or runny nose. may have a cold? I would've thought that the occasional cough from extra saliva going the wrong way may be plausible, but not bouts of coughing???(I'm not a Dr though so unprofessional opinion there grin ). But a cold should only last a week or so. Teething.... we seemed to get bouts of it, fussy for a couple of days with teething symptoms, then fine for a week, but seems a bit more variable between babies.

Thanks for reply. Ds does not have temperature but he is drooling and maybe cough comes from this
