Diarrhea and Teething?


Diarrhea and teething are usually connected. There are two different beliefs to this connection. The first belief is that teething causes diarrhea due to the excessive saliva that accompanies teething. The excessive saliva settles in the child’s stomach, causing irritation of the stomach, and is emitted as diarrhea. The other belief holds that teething causes stress and irritability for the child which in turn promotes sickness leading to diarrhea. When diarrhea does occur, the child should drink plenty of fluids to prevent dehydration.
