TEETHING VS DIARREA
Can anyone please clarify for me if there is any link between these two (teething and diarrea). My son is 9 months old and he hasn't shown any teeth yet. Ihear some people say the older the child gets the more difficult it will be while teething.
Please shed some light.

Children differ a great deal with the time that their teeth appear, so don't worry at this stage. There is no link between teething and diarrhoea.
