My baby is 3months old, she cries uncontrollably at times

Customer Question

My baby is 3months old, she cries uncontrollably at times and wants to bite everything she has, toys etc.
This evening as i gave her a bath, she had what i would describe as a "fit". She threw her arms and legs around and screamed, I mean literally screamed with a high pitched noise coming from it. We have been giving her teething gel as we believe she is teething as her gums are hard and im sure i can feel a tooth. She hardly sleeps, turns away food after eating a short time. After her bath we checked her temperature and she was 35.5, we wwrapped her in a blanket and she warmed up and finally fell asleep. I'm just wondering if its something we are doing wrong or this is normal. The teething gel is suitable for 3months but, recently read that it can cause fits in children. She also has bad constipation, she usually goes once a day, today twice which is great but, is there anything we can do as she is in pain when pushing to go.
