Teething Fever: Can teething cause fevers?

Updated: Mar 15



Sometimes teething can cause fevers, but not always. It is possible your baby’s body temperature increases while teething, however only slightly. You should contact your baby’s doctor if your baby’s fever lasts longer than 24 hours, has a fever higher than 100.4 Fahrenheit, experiences vomiting, diarrhea, or a rash with the fever.

Between four and seven months, you should start to see your baby’s teeth coming in. Some babies do not experience any pain or fussiness during teething. For others, teething can be a challenging time both for the babies and the parents.
