teething of 4 month old child

I'm not sure what is the problem, that's why I'm trying to give last month update. My son is 4 month old, very joyful and smiling all the time (before), breastfeeding only. He started to get lots of saliva at 3 mo (I thought that his glands started to work). About 2 weeks ago he began to put his wrist in the mouth. For about 1.5 week he had stuffed nose (a little bit greenish discharge when sucked with bulb-syringe for the first two days, then nothing, only "stuffed" sound) and sometimes wet cough during the night (his sister had running nose at the same time, so I assumed he got it from her), also all of a sudden his colic/gas started (Kali bic helped a bit, Lycopodium made him fussy, Magn., Bryonia or Colocynthis didn't work). Since yesterday it looks more like teething: the gums are of normal colour, but on the lower gum it is easy to see both lateral (more pronounced!!!) and central teeth through the gum. Other symptoms: very disturbed sleep at night (awake every 2h, doesn't look like he needs eat more, though he doesn't refuse to suck a little; before was able to sleep 5-6 h through the night), today he has troubles to sleep during the day too (before he had 2 naps 3 h each), crying often, irritable, more quiet when I carry him, lots of saliva, temperature is normal, but his cheeks are reddish (both), stool is normal (bright brown-orange) and regular, no loss of apetite (I would rather say he asks for breast more often, maybe it just allows him to relax). Because he is constantly looking for affection (maybe because he has 2 y old sister) I tried Pulsatilla yesterday - it calmed him down yesterday, but doesn't look like working today. When his nose was stuffed I tried Chamomilla too, looked like it helped a little (less nose stuffiness and "stuffed" sound from the nose). Today when he cried and wasn't able to sleep I gave him Chamomilla again and breastfed after, then he slept, but not a lot. I use 30C potency, dissolve 1 pellet in 4 oz of water and give hime 1tsp (4 succations every time).
I'll appreciate your help and advice a lot !!!

didn't do any vaccination.

was on antibiotic treatment for 2 days when was 1 mo old (developed high fever, we went to ER), other than that no medications for him (I also didn't take any allotopic medications)

2 days ago I had terrible head ache, took gelsemium 2 days ago (didn't help),nux vomica twice (30C)- day before yesterday and yesterday - that is all I took from his birth and pregnancy. Forget to mention - pre/postnatal vitamin Materna.

mother's diet: citrus (grapefruit, orange, tangerines), apples, whole bread, lots of green tea with milk and lactation tea, potato (rare), rice, pork, beef (rare), chicken or turkey (not a big meat-eater), letuce, tomatos, cucumbers, mayonaise, light sour-cream, old-fashioned oat meal, cottage cheese (rare), cheese (like it a lot), peanuts (yesterday and a little today).

is calc-phos;or sulph
for late teething ??? he is only 4 mo yesterday. he is not sweating, usually his hands are cold. sneezing. sorry for typing style, but I'm holding him and it makes typing difficult. chamomilla calms him down, but for a short period of time. that's why I stopped to give him anything and waiting for recommendations.

I forgot to mention buckwheat and pasta in my diet. also to improve lactation I took all the time (except last 3 days) complex homeopatic remedy (5 pel once a day):pulsatilla 200c,agnus cactus 50c, urtica urens200c; should I stop taking it at all ?
thank you
Larisa T last decade
yes--stop the ''complex remedy"...child effected by puls 200c in complex--particulay if been taking daily for period of time...

stop remedies and mother take single (3 pellet)dose nux-vomica 200c in evening before sleep --hour after last eating...NO repeat at all

mother is to AVOID all acid foods(coffee;tea;fruits and fruit juices ;carbonated soft drinks;vinegar/pickles;alcoholic beve`rages...etc)--include more cabbbage/bok choy;brooccoli;brusel sprout type foods..some oinion ok if well cooked ....meats ok as mentioned --keep to the buckwheat products rather than wheat...

post back response or lack of response --we will take it from there--see--state of health of child/mother ...by sounds more sulphur hepar sulph next--we will see

Thank you for reply.
Should I avoid green tea at all ?
So only lactation tea is allowed (chamomille, fennel, nettle, anise, fenugreek, english lavender flower) and water ???
When he had stuffed nose I tried Kali-c (took congestion away, but not completely) and hepar sulph (tried it after not complete effect of kali-c, hepar sulph actually made his congestion worse, so I stopped it immediately).
Nux vomica should be 200c or I could use 30c (have only this potency right now, what is the dosage if I can use 30c) ?
Shouldn't use calc sulph or phosph ?
If he would be very irritable could I use Chamomille in the meantime ?
Thank you

listen...NO other remedies--relax--step by step we will get child and you to stable state---NO TEAS AT ALL..medicinal effect may only complicate may even be causative in this case---so right down to basics--

-well if no nux-v 200c then single dose (3 pellets) nux vomica 30c--to be taken before bed --1 hour after last eating..no repeat at all---

obtain nux-v 200c for future use (if needed)..

keep me posted
