Any suggestions as to why my 3mo old DS is wiping the front of his face back and forth into our shirts when we hold him up on our shoulder? He also tries rubbing his face on my boob when he's nursing sometimes He does it a lot, especially when he first wakes up, when he's trying to fall asleep and now when nursing.
He has thrush- I asked the doctor if that was why our DS is doing that wiping thing and he said no. He thought it's just a snugggle thing my DS doing, but I don't tend to agree. He wakes himself up doing it and he seems to really need to do it for some reason, not just a nurture thing but almost an itch. It really doesn't seem to be comfortable because his nose is going back and forth into our shoulders too- Thrush seems to be a good answer, since yeast infections can be itchy, but he's had thrush for a month and this just started last week.
He's also been drooling a little bit. My DH is wondering if maybe DS is starting to teeth? We don't see much sign of teeth yet, but who knows. Is this a teething sign? Any other ideas?
