My son is getting his first tooth, which reminds me of an experience we had a while ago. When my son was first born, we had a neighbor come to visit with her runny-nosed child. The mother assured me that he wasn’t sick, just teething. THIS IS BALONEY. I asked my doctor about that and she said it just wasn’t true. A runny nose is not a symptom of teething, it is a symptom of sickness.
Because my son was born almost three weeks early and was very small, I was obviously concerned about his not getting sick. It is a kind gesture to visit your neighbor after she’s had a baby, but please please please don’t take your sick children with you! A runny nose is a runny nose and is not caused by teething.
