The Teething Myth You Have to Stop Believing

Posted on: September 8th, 2018 | Categories: Uncategorized

Many parents have the misconception that teething causes diarrhea. What’s the correlation, you may ask? It is believed that the excess saliva that comes with teething can affect the gastrointestinal system.

However, although there is no evidence of a causal relationship, this idea may not be completely baseless, as teething babies put a variety of different items in their mouths during teething. This can result in them introducing a host of new bacteria into their system which can then results in diarrhea.

If your baby has diarrhea while teething, don’t write it off as a symptom of teething itself. Monitor what your baby puts in his or her mouth, and if the diarrhea persists, he or she should be examined by a doctor to avoid further issues.
