    Definitely sounds like it. Chewy tubes work well. And if it's super bad I give my kiddo some Tylenol.

    From all the research I’ve recently done, I’m guessing he’s cutting his second molars😕

    It’s hard to tell if he’s just being a toddler or acting out because of teething🤦🏻‍♀️

    It’s normal for 2 years old to cut down on the appetite or be very picky with their food. And the fighting of bedtime too , they want to be there for everything that’s happening around. My daughter it’s just like that too. She used to have a bedtime schedule and now it’s a constant battle with the “no night night”. The drooling might have to do with teething.

    Yeees! My 2 year old fought me until 4:30 this morning! “No night night” Eventually I had to sneak out to smoke cigarette but she will come find me outside on deck telling me “shh. Quiet. Night night.” Then she would Grab my hand to go inside. 🤦🏽‍♀️ Talk to your doctor. At first he suggested 1mg melatonin (done tried that doc) I informed him I found Zarbees all natural cold medicine (for when she had bad cold) that promotes sleep. He told me to keep using it even without having a cold if it’s helping. It’s helping, just finally learned to give it to her a couple hours before bedtime. Some nights (like last night) it didn’t work. He’s suggesting doing Sleep study now. Definitely talk to trusted doctor. My doctor was my sisters(now 32) Was mine and is my twin brothers(now 17) and now My daughters. He knows everything about us and how we work and what’s normal for us and what’s not normal. Because I thought it was typical for a 2 year old to be fighting the parent/s. But some things just aren’t normal and help is sometimes needed. Keep us posted on what’s helping and what’s not!! Would love some of your tricks.

    Sounds like teething. My little one responded very well to the amber necklace.
