    hello,the purging associated with teeth growth is not as a result of teeth but due to the introduction of the child to weaning wc happens to he around this time.u need to take ur baby to a hospital but put the baby on ORS to maintain her fluid and electrolyte balance.when the baby overcomes this,ensure u maintain good hand and food hygiene.boil ur drinking water,don't use feeding bottles.use cup and spoon instead.watch the daycare ur child uses closely.don't allow ur baby to pick dirts with hands.take ur baby to a hospital now.
