Teething doesn't cause diarrhoea, its a myth. The explanation is that by 5 months age mouthing stage begins and the child puts everything into mouth. This causes transmission of organisms causing all such symptoms. As a prompt measure put the child on WHO ORS and watch for urine output. Do see a child specialist since your baby is too young and might require more medicines. By the way bottle feeding also can b a source of such infections.
