Teething and going potty a lot.
Sonskydave posted:
Our 9 month old son has been using the bathroon very frequently. I have told my wife I believe it is due to him teething. As I recall children go to the potty more when teething and the consitency is a little runnier than normal. Is there any truth to this? Please help to ease our minds on the subject. Thank you in advance for any insight.

Yes, the extra saliva from teething can cause runny poops that are more frequent.

You just want to keep an eye out for dehydration and if it really excessive like every diaper, you may want to consult your doctor.

How would one know if a baby is dehydrated? and my daughter is 9 months with her two front bottom teeth? I worry about that..
