Teething?
My baby was born 2.5 months premature. He is nearly 11 months old now and not yet has a tooth in his mouth. He only drinks appr.3x bottles of 100-150ml a day (if I am lucky) but eats well on purity and cerelac. The past 3 weeks he has been niggling at night, wakes up a few times crying, sometimes it takes up to 3 hours to get him to fall asleep. I give him probe flora paed 1x a day (is this ok?) You think he might be teething thus his reluctance not to sleep? Hands, fingers, toes, everything goes to the mouth.

He definitely seems to be teething now. Use a teething gel on his gums if he is so uncomfortable. Using the Probiflora is always good for increasing a baby's immune resistance.
